Valentine's Day is to be a busy day in our house. Postcards From Sweden is kicking off. I am going out for "a wee day out" with my friend, Liz, I will be at my Scrapbooking Class in the Evening. I will no doubt have a romantic tea with my husband, hopefully. And I will be starting a new knitting project.
A week or so ago, I bought myself a skein of Strawberry Fields Forever sock yarn from Ellie in Craft House Magic's etsy shop. Sue my IG and bee friend bought one too, and we decided to knit a pair of socks beginning Valentine's Day. Ellie thought this was a wonderful idea, and joined in too. Now Ellie is hosting a Valentine's Day Cast On in her ravelry group. Check out her ravelry page and thread. I can't link you without linking up my own online account! I am really looking forward to this. I have fallen in love with knitting again, and I really love knitting socks. To knit, albeit it virtually, with friends, well that is just lovely, very lovely.
Ellie has designed a heart themed sock which she is launching on the day itself. This will be fun. Now, will I keep these socks for myself or will I knit them for my husband? The yarn just looks like a bowl of ice cream and strawberries. Some of my favourite summer things. Roll on the summer. Ellie does a great podcast which I love to "watch". I know, podcast - listen, not watch. Check out her blog for details.
