End of the week update
My Happy Sock is coming along nicely - I'm currently on the toe decreases, only a few more rounds and the dreaded grafting to do and then it's done! I'm already planning my next pair, I love having socks on the go, they are so portable!
And only one more band to do on the Antique Hearts Needleroll too, although of course there's quite a bit of hem stitching needed at this point. The picture is 'fresh off the hoop' - I'll iron it next time!
Somehow - probably because it got stuffed in my bag - Petites Lettres Rouges met with either ink or eyeliner ...
However, with my trusty bottle of Stain Devil and a cotton bud ...
I'm very relieved, because it really is a pretty piece. I've also washed it in dish detergent and warm water and the colours stayed absolutely in place, which is always a relief when dealing with hand dyed threads!
So, hopefully this weekend, in between completing a Uni assignment, I will have at least one happy dance!
