Ravelry links knitters all over the world and I have made some wonderful friends through a shared love of all things woolly! Two of my closest knitting friends are Kim and Kat, who both live in the USA. We decided that we would have a swap to console each other for not being able to go to Rhinebeck in October. As well as swapping a skein of yarn and some edible treats, I knit each of them a pair of Helen socks. I love this pattern - it's a cosy sock, perfect for lazy weekends and it has a special meaning for me as it was named after me! I knit a pair for each in their favourite colours - purple and blue.
As well as knitting the socks, I was busy sewing too. I made a little fabric bag for each of them in matching fabric. It will be fun to think of us as bag triplets, knitting away.
I had so much fun playing around on my sewing machine, I am planning a little more stitching over the weekend. Pop back on Sunday to see what I've been up to! xxx
