His Socks...

 are finished.
You'd be guessing right if you thought I'd just been knitting for the past week, not much else happening lately.
 It is really difficult to model socks which are about two sizes too big for your own big feet. The complete toe part of the sock is beyond my toes so it is best to just show this part so you get the idea of what these will look like on. Maybe BD will model them for me when I gift them later this week.

Pattern - His and hers socks by Ann Budd from the book Knitted gifts. 
Yarn - Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4ply, colour Denim.

I am joining other yarn crafters in some Stash Busting this year. 
I figure as I already intended to use yarn on hand for my projects this year I may as well have company.
This bucket is first up for my focus, that is only the top layer you can see, there is more underneath that.
These are all yarns suitable for sock making, among other things and as I have some sock requests to fulfil this is a perfect place to start.


I'm off to make a start on another sock.

Hope your weekend had time for stitches.
