Sock Addiction

I have knitted a new pair of socks this week.  I am really excited about learning & challenging myself with these things at the moment.  

These socks are toe up!  Wow!  Talk about easy!  Combined with the After thought heel there is no excuse now not to knit these things!  

I am so excited with how well I got these to match too!  I am giving them away so I thought I should make them as near to perfectly matched as possible.  

Ravelled for notes...

New Socks

I'm on a sock roll...  

Sorry about the picture.  It was really hard to get a decent picture with the colour showing up correctly.  It's hot pink.  Mostly it was showing up red!  

But these are my latest piece of work.  My My Kitchen Rules socks.  Mostly I worked on them of an evening while watching that.  Don't you have things that you make that relate to a show or a time?  But again, these are the After Thought Heel socks which are really cool too be able to play with colours.  It will be a great way to use up odd bits of sock yarn later on.

Easter Bags

Like I said yesterday, I shouldn't go to work before the fair.  

I was cutting up the ends of these "Guess How Much I Love You" fabrics yesterday at work & umm...  well, it is rabbits, & it is cute & it is nearly Easter.  So what else can you do in a hurry but turn out some drawstring bags.  So that's happened this morning.  16 of them.  They are about 25cm square so not tiny, but not huge either.  There was a request for Easter themed things so I guess this fits that.  

That's enough now.  I don't have time for anything else....
