I found ANOTHER crochet sock book for the bargain price of £2.50, so I just had to have it. The great thing about it was that it had a few patterns in DK, so that was a bonus as I have been working in the norm of 4ply recently.
I decided to try out 100% cotton as I had some in my stash
And this is what happened!
Another pair I made were in 4ply in this lovely rainbow yarn
Aren't they just super snazzy!
Ah! here I am in class, showing off my new DK 100% cotton socks
I also decided to make another "Loren" Jumper in Red this time, which I work on in front of the TV at night as it's an easy no look type pattern
And now for some class news.....
I know, I know I am supposed to be taking some time off & catching up on commissions & my own work (as per the socks etc. above)
This beautiful blanket is by the totally addicted "Dorset Finca" who is also addicted to Attic24
I can't blame her as Lucy is crochet amazing!
And here's another addict - a cushion addict
I have also had a bit of a classroom makeover this last week - I bought a table cloth to lighten up the room & I have a new wool stash thanks to Lemonade Yarns
It looks brighter
And well stocked!
Ahhhhh more rainbow socks!
Thank goodness it's nearly sock weather again

I also made over my Crochet Class sign that I hang on my gate when I know a new hooker is arriving
