Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit.

Catch up on the day to day work I do, and the occassional thought. It's ok, I wouldn't subject you to all the gory details. For more of the handmade art and craft, jewellery and textiles I make and sell, see my online store.

Hand knitted baby socks

Did I mention that I knit in my spare time? What spare time, you may ask. Well, when one is in the car or watching TV. You can't read while you are watching TV (at least, I can't) and sitting and doing nothing BUT watching TV seems like a huge waste of time, so I knit. Baby socks. Great little socks that stay on baby's little feet, in newborn and 3 to 6 month sizes. Newborn babies need natural fibres to keep their feet warm, whatever season they are born.

Some say it's like knitting with tooth picks :)

My daughter dyes 4 ply sock wool (80% wool and 20% polyester) and while this is great wool for adult socks and all sorts of other garments, I love it for the baby socks. Her colours are interesting and often vibrant. Check these out.

If you are interested in buying socks try my website and if you would like to see the full range of wool to purchase via the web, go to Stashable. I hope to see you soon. In the mean time (I don't watch TV in the morning) I will go and make some more jewellery (or jewelry - if you happen to live somewhere else in the world)

Sometimes I use other wools. For me it's all about colour/color. :)

  1. We love, love, love these socks -- they were the only ones that would stay on our baby girl's feet for ages! Plus they are absolutely adorable and kept her feet toasty warm.
