Slow Sunday Stitching

 All my slow stitching time is continuing to be taken up with knitting. I finished the last of the socks I wanted to do for Christmas gifts. I was unsure about this red yarn when I started, but they turned out really well. I’m quite happy with the way they match.

After those were done I pulled out a small blanket that I started a number of years ago that only needed about 6 inches knitted to finish it. It has a really fun technique that took advantage of some hand dyed yarns and some of them ended up with some fun colour pooling. It’s all sewn together and the ends woven in. It’s perfect for keeping my feet warm.

After that I dug in my bins of sock yarn and pulled out all kinds of leftovers from various sock and sweater knitting projects. This is going to be a very long tube scarf. It’s just beginning. It will show off some of the self striping and patterning yarns I have left as well. It’s from this pattern called Alliteration and it is a free Ravelry download. It is a very basic and mindless knit, perfect for keeping my hands busy in the car or while watching some Miss Marple mysteries.

I’m linking up with Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. You are well prepared for Christmas! The red socks look great!

  2. Love th scarf and those red socks!

  3. The socks are an awesome Christmas gift! I didn't know the word "colour pooling" so that is something new that I learned today!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
