It's the little things . . .

I crocheted up a little pair of the mini Christmas socks from Le Monde de Sucrette's lovely website, at the weekend.  They're such fun to make - I had big plans to make a whole heap of them for Christmas but actually it feels quite  nice to have managed to make just two of them as decorations or whatever :)  (Teenage son is a little worried I'm turning into a 'granny-type' with my sock-making, hehe!)  I think I might have some fun customising them with a little bling bling!

(BTW don't look too closely at my crochet stripes - they're more than a little 'wonky'!!!)  I have no idea how to crochet stripes 'correctly' :)

Talking about socks, I was really delighted that the author of the book I used to make my stripey Noro  socks, Ann Budd (Getting Started Knitting Socks) put a comment on my project page on Ravelry.  I had noticed that she sometimes comments on people's creations of her sock patterns, and secretly hoped  she might spot mine, and hurray, she did! :)  I feel like a big kid LOL  - so chuffed :)  Sometimes these little things can really brighten up your day!  It's a little blustery and wet in the Hebrides today, hence the dark pic - ooops :)

Off to package up a tweedie order and various other  'tweedie' work today - enough weekend hilarity methinks!

Happy Monday :)

Hey ALison, love those cute little crocheted socks. You have got the bug haven't you?
How exciting that Ann commented on your page. I think that's lovely.....keeping it real. By the way did I tell you how much I love those stripey Noro socks?!!

Shall package up some blue sky and sunshine for you once I figure out how to do it!!
