I haven't been slacking in the stash knitting, despite my recent acquisitions. In fact, I've even finished a few things! First, a batch of crocheted snowflakes. After a period of unsuccessful searching in the UK, my lovely grandmother mailed me a box of laundry starch so I could finally block these.
There are patterns for 12 different snowflakes in the book I'm using (also courtesy of my grandmother), and I'm planning to make one of each to go on our Christmas tree this year. I'm really pleased with how they turned out, especially since I've not done much thread crochet before.
I've also finished yet another pair of Monkey socks. My sock drawer is getting pretty full - perhaps it's time I tossed some bought socks?
