Rockin' Girl Blogger
I'm really sorry that it's taken me so long to reply to all the comments recently. I hate the 'no-reply' feature on blogger & wish that I could hit reply to comments as they come in. However what is worse whilst mobile blogging that I could see the comments in my inbox via my mobile phone but couldn't publish them
So I tried to answer as many as I could in subsequent posts.
Library Girl Knits! wanted to know about the cotton from Lidl that I used to make a shopping bag. It's a DK weight & was a special that was in stock for a week or so earlier in the year. The bag can hold a fair bit but I'm not sure about cat litter especially if you're like me & buy huge sacks of the stuff. I find the handles soft but you can always get the solid plastic handle grip things meant for carrier bags if you don't like them. She also asked about some Angel Yarns Sock Yarn that I have in my stash on Ravelry. It's the same composition as Opal and they've got some really nice colours. I've been looking at the Chocolate Plum for ages but have a lot of sock yarn so am being good & sitting on my hands.
Library Girl Knits!, The Silver Spider & Sereknitity all wanted to know what yarn I'm using for DH's socks shown in the last post:
Lana Grossa Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch shade 709
which I bought whilst on holiday last year.
I tried my best to get the socks to match but the yarn wasn't having any of it at all. So DH will have matching purple toes & then the colours run riot. He loves the colours & is calling them his 'Sun Set Socks'. However as each sock has 108 stitches & I'm using 2mm needles they're taking a VERY long time indeed especially as other projects keep joining the queue in demand of my time.
And for Serknittiy a free pattern from Knit Picks. I couldn't find a decent tutorial in the time that I had to look but did find these films on YouTube!
