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!
