Well, this is a bit of a flying visit as we have a busy day and I can hear the dulcet tones of my husband returning from checking the stock and now I will be discovered!!
First there was this one...........which made up pretty quickly.........and I was feeling quietly smug! I wanted to make a pair of socks, partly because I hadn't done one (a pair!) before and partly because I wanted to order one of those swirly balls of wool.........I know, I am easily pleased!!
I didn't rush to put the second one on my hook as I was getting too carried away with striping ('in the time it took me to do that I could have done one whole stripe' ...........'washing? ......oh, no I didn't do any, I was too busy with my blanket'......... you get the picture?).
Anyway, it suddenly occurred to me that I couldn't really remember how I did the heel of the first sock and went into a bit of a panic! I have experienced making one sock before, and it is not a good feeling.
So, you will be relieved to know that...............
No camera trickery, I now have two socks..........a whole pair!!
I know that it appears that I have been sitting with my feet up this morning, but contrary to appearances, I have been a busy girl. In fact as I was
lounging trying to catch the perfect picture this morning I suddenly realised in my relaxed state that I had forgotten the scones in the oven, thankfully no harm done and I will be providing cream teas this afternoon.
Yesterday we were out at a local zoo and despite miserable weather much fun was had.
My favourite part?
Good thing I am not rustling up some socks for these!
I must tell you all before I shoot off, that my husband actually showed mild concern last night, as to how I would update my blog today when we are out all day..........I am slowly convincing him!
During my blogging, my littlest has picked up my socks and said 'mazing docks' and 'poss' (posh).......out of the mouths of babes.
I like that my kids see me making things and almost take it for granted that I would certainly attempt to make something before buying it (although the tin and string telephones are not so good long distance!)
Now, I have lambs to separate, children to bath, dressing up to be done, family lunch to attend, scones to be served...............
I will return this evening, to catch up with your projects, hope you have had a successful week!
