:: Hello Lovelies::
Ok so lets cut to the chase today. I am in heaven and it's stripey!!!
Yes it's time for my sock Ta-Dah and I am soooooooo excited.
Happy Dance Happy Dance.
I cannot tell you how totaly happy I am to have finished these bad boys!
At times I could have cried with frustration including when I cast off(traditional cast off stylie) and discovered they were too tight and had to unpick the cast off and read up on what to do to make the cuff more blood circulation friendly and viola the socks were made!
I can't wait to get to my LYS now and get some more sock yarn to get going on another pair with hopefully less mistakes in them.
Thank you Lucy my LYS owner who kept me knitting and not frogging through out this project. Thank you to my family for being there when tea was late and covering their ears to my profanities. Thank you to...............
Sorry I am doing a Gwyneth Paltrow now aren't I?????
Ok I want to keep this post brief or I am in danger of ramming it down your throats of exactly how happy a pair of socks have made my life (I do know how sad that statement makes me sound!)
So time for one last thing that has made me happy.............
For my Birthday last year my friend J gave me some mini-daffs. I am no green fingered, planty type person but I dried out the bulbs, re potted them this year and hoped they may sprout. I didn't expect them to and I forgot all about them really but look! I have managed not to kill them :o) and they have even flowered.
On that note I'll quit while I am ahead and say TTFN and I hope you all have a Happy Dance week of your own.
