Ta dah!!! We now have one completed sock - I was so proud of my efforts that I almost made a Hollywood Oscar speech to my kids . . . "I would like to thank my family, my director, blah, blah . . . ." and almost shed a tear LOL :) Anyway, as I suspected, it does look a little cartoon-like, funnily enough.
It's fallen between two camps - a little too bulky to wear inside my walking boot and perhaps not bulky enough as a slipper sock, although I predict it (they!) will get used as the latter. Anyway I felt very euphoric when it was completed on Monday night - I ran out of yarn and had to use another colour to make the toe but I think that was a 'happy accident' as it looks quite nice with a bit of variation . . .
(It looks a little like a knitted snow- boot, hehe!!)
On the 'tweedie' front, I'm finishing off an iPad sleeve today for a customer . . .
This will be the last custom order I'll be undertaking for a couple of months so that I can get down to some stock making. I've been busy the last few weeks making or sending gadget sleeves, so I'm looking forward to some more creative 'tweedie' work. Hopefully I'll be able to show some new 'tweedie' items next week - that's if I can tear myself away from my compulsive sock-knitting :) :)
More creative peeps here - Byeee!Alison x
