My Mum did send me some great shots of Dad modelling his new socks and slippers but for fear he'll become an internationally sought after foot model I'll spare you, oops I mean him, by not posting them here.
Glad you like them Dad.
Now onto another pair: I've started some simple 2x2 rib socks in Koigu. I love Koigu -- the colours and the squidgy socks that it makes.
And talking of soft and squidgy sock yarn, I ordered some wonderful handpainted Merino Cahsmere blend sock yarn from the Knittery. I had to have it. Yes I broke my yarn diet... I am weak :o(
The package arrived the other day and I appreciate the thought they put into it -- the yarn was wrapped in tissue and tucked inside were some jelly beans. What did make me smile most is that, according to the label, they are 'cheerfully' handpainted :o)
And there's more... my latest Sundara Seasons collection also came in. Some sock yarn in a beautiful shade of lavender/blue called Hyacinth.
Better get those dpns out and get cracking...
