Happy Friday - 16.01.15

Happiness is...........casting on...........

Nothing like a new project on the needles to make me smile (despite the fact the other* project is very much not finished).

Winding the wool to hopefully get some sort of match in the colours and now cracking on, with the toe done already.  Toe-up two at a time.

Why the sudden need for socks?  Well I happened to be looking at Planet Penny's homemade socks and before I knew it I was hunting for a ball of sock wall that I bought a few years ago.

Joining in with Planet Penny's Happy Friday....why don't you pop over there and take a look at everyone else's happy things too.

* if you are fooled that there is only one unfinished project I'm impressed


  1. Oooh, that yarn is fabulous! Glad you've been inspired x

  2. I can see why that sock fire was like under you. I like how she hung the socks. The ladybug on each pin is a cute touch.

  3. That yarn is enough to make me happy! Gorgeous socks are in your future.

  4. They are going to be fabulous socks.

  5. Those socks are going to be a lot of fun.
    Hugs to you Faith,

  6. Hi Faith, when I started reading your post I thought I was having a déjà ou moment ... I have so many projects going but there is nothing more fun to me than starting a new project and this week I also saw in a friends blog taht they had started a pair of socks knitting both at the same time and I was very tempted to make one for myself .... Hummmm ... Maybe I will go upstairs and start that today .... Happiness ... I love your yarn.

  7. That first bit sums me up nicely, I love casting on something new but I rarely seem to be casting off :-o Really like the bright rainbows in that wool, it's going to make fantastic socks. I wonder what the striping will look like?


I'd love to hear what you think, and I won't be asking you to jump through hoops (or fill in a captcha) to do it.............
