have been welcomed into their new home.
|So I played a little more.|
Using leftovers can be a lot of fun, if sometimes frustrating.
The amazing generosity of fellow a crafter was essential to this project. I am not a planner, I'm guessing you already figured that out the way I flit around from here to there. I had some leftover yarns, same brand and weight, which I thought would work in a particular way, but it soon became evident that there was insufficient of the purple colour to complete the socks the way I envisaged. The wonderful woolly world of Ravelry came to the rescue, a quick message there asking if any bits out there needed a new home and all was sorted very quickly. A little lovely purpleness flew south for inclusion in these socks.

This project began after a discussion about odd socks, so I made 'not quite a pair'. While the two socks are not the same they are complimentary.
As they were headed to a home where the pets are important members of the family I played with some colourwork cats and dogs. I am very happy with the final product and hesitated at the mail box, they nearly didn't make it to their destination.
|They're happily keeping toes warm in their new home.|
The last day of holidays here and the sun has been shining so I spent a little time at the beach with my needles in hand this afternoon. The sock partners will be finished this weekend.
Looking forward to Friday night with friends tonight, hope to see you there.
If I can find the fabric I'm thinking that I will get some sewing done. It's been a long time since Nomee has been out to play.
Hope the sun is shining in your creative space today.
