June Makes

 


In June I have been doing some gift knitting and I made some men's socks. I used 2.5mm needles and cast on 72 stitches and knit a 2 x 2 rib for 2 1/2 inches. The yarn I used was Drops Fabel and the colour way was winter and blue for the contrast heels and toes. 




And here are the finished socks and I am really pleased with how they turned out. 




My latest obsession this month has been crochet jam jar covers to use with tea lights. 




One led to another and another and this was such a fun and quick project to make. 



 
I couldn't wait for it to get dark so I could light them and see the full effect.






I also made a couple more to use when we are away in our motorhome. My colour inspiration came from this watermelon tray and I love the effect.




June is my Birthday month and I made myself a new dress for the occasion.  I used this tried and tested pattern and some fabric from my stash.  




I have made several versions of this dress over the years and each one looks totally different which I really like.  This dress will now go into rotation to be worn over the summer which seems to be the season when I wear the most dresses. 




Thanks for stopping by and until next time.
