Finished for Friday

As promised, the socks are now completed and I am as pleased as Punch with them... 

This is the very first time I have made socks for me rather than anyone else, so I am wriggling my toes in them as I type!

After an hour or so, I started to get withdrawal symptoms, so I knocked up a scrunchy for a friend's daughter and she was thrilled with it.  We then had to look through her mum's fabric scraps to make one in her school colours - brown and yellow!  
Have you noticed how many weddings now take place on a Friday?  I was walking home from my LYS and there was a lovely wedding party celebrating in a local restaurant... isn't it amazing how infectious other people's happiness can be?  And talking of happy occasions, I am currently watching the family across the road, they have organised a surprise 50th birthday party for their son-in-law and various family members are squeezing into the house.  His two young sons have not been told about it, lest they give the game away.  So I am currently sitting in a little bubble of reflected happiness and may well throw caution to the wind and celebrate with fish & chips from the shop.  Sometimes you just have to live life to the max.  Have a lovely and happy weekend, one and all!

Very colourful socks. You won't loose them in the washing pile.
Why don't you wave to them out the window, being very neighbourly, you might get an invite to the party, save the troll down to the chip shop. lol.
