Has it really been 9 months ??

Hello all,

Anybody there ? - I feel I lately start this way when writing in this little space of mine.
I always have the intention of being  more regular, but then life gets in the middle of it.

It's been a good while, since October 2016, really ???? that long ???

Ok, so lots happened, some knitting happened too, not much though.

Ok, so I'll tell you a bit of the highlights of all this time.

At Christmas we went to France (as we usually do since my husband is French), and we stopped at Lille for 1 night before going to my in-laws. Of course and as every time we go somewhere, the first thing I look up is yarn shops. . . I guess every yarn loving person does, I don't feel I'm the only one.
And so I went to La Droguerie and bought these beauties:

It is Alpaca yarn, and even though I mentioned in my YouTube channel a few times I do not consider myself someone who would gravitate towards blue, well, I think I need to rethink that because I have for the most part of 2016 and 2017 gone straight for blues 😏

I bought it to make a cardigan for my son but then in the end it was too fine, and so I;m saving it to make something for myself, maybe a shawl or a fingering weight cardigan, I'm not sure yet. I have a few favourites saved in Ravelry.

In February I had my birthday and my husband got me a few lovely things. Amongst those where these sock blockers (finally 😍) and the amazing Anne of Green Gables DVD set, which he ordered from Canada, no less. I cannot tell you how I adore Anne of Green Gables. I watched it when I was 12 years old for the first time and loved it since. I always felt a bit like Anne, and also the part of me that was not like Anne admired her and wanted to be like her. . .

I managed to finish these socks too. They are the Mercury Socks. It is a great pattern and it's free ¡¡

I is perfect for knitters that want to try lace knitting as the lace pattern in it is easy enough for adventurous beginners I'd say. If you are an experienced knitter, it is also lovely to knit this pattern since it is quite enjoyable and mindless. I love the result and really love how the socks turned out. 
The yarn used is Bergere de France, their Goomy 50 line in the Imprime Beige colour way. 

Well, that it for today. 

Oh, and if you are interested in cotton yarn I'm doing a Clearance Sale at my Etsy Shop of the Natura Just cotton. I really need to clear all the stock I have so that I can begin new ventures with my own hand dyed yarn ¡¡ 

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer !
