Weekend round-up: Stitchy inspiration

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! I’ve been catching up with friends who are visiting from interstate, which has been really lovely.

I was sick this week, but I still managed to find some creative time. I stitched a feather on my favourite pair of pants:

 

I also finished knitting a pair of ankle socks in a crazy colourway from Hedgehog Fibres. I haven’t gotten around to taking a photo yet, but trust me when I say they’re really crazy – in fact I think they might be too crazy for me! I’m considering overdyeing them to mute them down a little bit – I’ve got some black dye on order, so I might give them a soft wash of grey to tone down the brightness. If I do, I promise I’ll post a before-and-after shot.

Speaking of ordering things, I also have not ohttp://blog.karenbarbe.com/2016/10/embroidery-samplers-from-chicago.htmlne but two new yarn orders in place so that I can dye up some more embroidery wool. One will be another wool and silk blend, while the other will be a pure wool. I can’t wait to start playing around with colours for them.

I hope you have a lovely, crafty weekend – I would love to hear what you’re up to! And if you have a few quiet moments, here is a little weekend reading and inspiration:
