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 :)
