ONE SOCK IS BETTER THAN NONE!



Guess what! Last week was no better. It was just busy, busy, busy! The upside is that my working week flew by in record time. The downside is so did my weekend and here we are again on a Sunday evening.



On a positive note, there has been a small smidgen of progress and Mr Snoops has one sock ready. He'd really like two ready to wear a few hours after cast-on. I don't think he really thinks very carefully about the finer points of the knitting process, do you?


I think they're turning out rather nicely, don't you? I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised at the lovely striping effect that has appeared. Mr Snoops is too!


On yet another positive note, just look at this beautiful array of crocuses in our local park today. They're hardy little things, seeming to survive despite the trampling of dogs and humans. So lovely to see!

This sock looks great. So great in fact, that I had to buy the yarn when I saw it in your post last week! Good luck with the second one.

That's a very springtime post, lovely colours all round. Mr S is developing excellent taste in socks. I hope he shows them off and gives your credit, so often when I talk to people about knitting socks it transpires Mr FF is wearing a bought pair that day.

Your socks would be a pleasure to wear and such beautiful colours. You cant beat a 'carpet' of crocus can you and theyre popping up everywhere xx

There's something just so wonderful about self striping yarn! Mr. Snoops is going to love those socks! And yes I totally understand the 'flying by' days. I'm in the midst of them, too.

one sock is definitely better than no socks! or half a sock... or one-third of a sock :)
it's gorgeous too and it matches the crocus almost perfectly!
