Woolly Wow Moment!

I know it’s been a little while since my last post, but I have had uni assignments due in, celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with my flat mates and I have also been packing for my whole four weeks at home! I got home yesterday and it is so nice to be back in the countryside. Don’t get me wrong, I love Southampton and my life there, but it does feel so good to be back in the Don (for those reading this at home).

So in my first What’s Hooking? post I showed you the projects I’ve been working on recently! Well I finally finished my poncho this week! 

So here is my first Woolly Wow Moment on the Bethy Boo Blog!

After I finished building up the wonderful rows of colour, I added an edge around the bottom that I took from Attic24’s Cowl Neck Poncho! I also made up a long chain which I threaded through and added pom poms on the end! Who doesn’t love a good pom pom! I am really chuffed with the outcome and I just love cosying up in the evenings wearing it.

I am still working on my Cosy Stripe blanket, but I started a new project this week now that the poncho is done (I have an obsession with wool okay)! I did some research and came across a lovely blog by Winwick Mum all about how to knit socks! So I followed the tutorials and invested in some needles and 4 ply sock wool!

 I am on Week 1 of the Sockalong tutorials at the moment and I am loving it! I never realised how satisfying and easy it was to knit a basic sock!

The colour of this wool is just so lovely and I can’t wait to keep you updated with how this new project goes!

For now though I will let you all enjoy your evenings of the first day of Spring, it’s certainly been a lovely sunny day here in Oxfordshire! All my love, B x
