Small person is now at school. After a blissfully long period away from work, chaos ensues. The working day has been chopped and changed to try to fit everything in around the new routine of the school day because I don’t want small person to be stuck in after school clubs unless we really have no alternative, or because there is something she really wants to stay late to do. To be honest, I think we are doing better than I thought that we might, but already I can see that the only way I am going to get everything done this month for the day job is going to be through some very late ones where I can sneak them in. Small person is coping well, other than having a strained lunchtime relationship with a boy who claims to be allergic to peas. My insights into her world are often piecemeal and a bit surreal…
A random positive from this is that now that I am back at work I am now into the routine of crocheting in the car on the way into and out of work (not when I am driving, obviously), and to and from work meetings on the train. These regular but shortish bouts keep me on track, which is just as well as I need to test some of the shawl projects that will come out later this year, as well as crack on with some birthday and Christmas presents. I have a lot of knitting to get through on that front, so little and often will be the way to go. I think everyone will be getting socks this year…
That includes me. Maybe. I decided I needed a treat so I am working on these slox in a yarn by Made by Jude. I haven’t bought her yarns before but I saw this yarn in Etsy and fell in love with the colours in it. It has worked up even better than I dared to hope. I even have a little flame up one side of my heel. I am hoping I can replicate this colour pooling on sock number 2! Not sure whether to keep them or not but I think I will, just for a change. The response to them on my Facebook page has been great though, and I think I need to explore more of Jude’s yarns. The depth of colour in the yarn is just beautiful.

Those socks really are absolutely stunning! And I’m glad you’re all getting back into the swing of things nicely.
Thanks Helen 💗
