Those socks are gorgeous! I have been thinking about doing some knitting videos, and thought I might get one done for today, but alas, I did not! I look forward to watching when my kids are having rest time!

How fun! I've read both Mockingbird and Watchman and liked them both. Sent them to my daughter in Scotland who is enjoying them now. :) Love the candle!

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my fav books. I have The watchman one but havent started it yet. I love those scrappy socks! I'm loving socks right now. You've inspired me to think about beeswax candles right now. We have bees and although we got honey we left most of the wax on the frames for them so I dont have any for candles and such. I need candles this winter to brighten up our dark home! Have a great week!

Oh! Tardis socks! Someone is going to have some fabulous feet! <3

Amanda said...

Great podcast - I am so in love with your idea of St. Nicholas socks.

Barbara Praying for Grace said...

Those are really cute socks. Someone is going to have warm feet! You certainly are a busy knitter!

That's when I record. Gotta love nap time!

willfulmina said...

Thanks! I made so many of them and secretly rejoiced when one or two had little flaws so I could keep them for myself!

willfulmina said...

Wow, how special to make candles from your own beeswax! I got the beeswax I used from a monastery down the road that has a candle factory. The coconut oil addition made it very easy to work with, and happily that came from a local Amish business.

willfulmina said...

Every time I think of actually getting to walk around in them, I am filled with zeal to actually finish!

willfulmina said...

It still feels manageable. I hope I'm not deceiving myself....

willfulmina said...

It's hard to resist popping them on my baby's feet. It'll be a miracle if I hold out until December!

I love your Noro legwarmers are lovely, too bad your knitting got tighter and you had to start frogging them... We all ♥ the Great British Baking Show, started watching it last year. Your candles look beautiful and I made some beeswax candles last week, adding lavender essential oils. My 12 y.o. daughter entered your instagram drawing!
