There is no cure...

it seems. but before I get to that story I was supposed to come back over the weekend so you could see what I got up to at FNWF, lucky for you there was lots of activity in other party goers spaces and plenty of eye candy turned up over the weekend.
Frankly you'll be happy I didn't post my paltry effort - 
see that reel of pink thread, well I had grand plans for that with some pretty green beads. Oh yeah, you can see a dozen or so hanging on there near the bottom of the reel in the first picture, well that was as far as I got with that! By the time I got those things on there I was completely over that project already. I went and played a game.

Now the pretty yarn in the next picture played very nice and you guessed it is now completely used up in my latest sock project, part of which is hanging there with the blighted pink thread.

I managed a whole two weeks without knitting anything sock, but this gorgeous pattern just got me and I had to go hunt out some leftovers to get started.

I had to make opposites as there was insufficient of one colour to complete a pair and just making two different coloured socks would have been way too simple.

These were started last week, not at the weekend, even on holidays I need to do some things other than knit.
There was a little photo shoot Monday before the sun burnt everything in sight.
HiyaHiya Christmas Flower socks in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4 ply and some unidentified gift yarn.

Very happy with the new socks, though they may be looking for a new home soon. Well once the weather goes back to normal.

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start and you are safe and cool.
Off to refill the glass with iced water!
