Marco Socks

These were very reluctant socks. I needed more than the usual amount of yarn so had to source an extra hank from Australia. So they sat around unfinished for a while and in the meantime I completed the Tetris Socks

Go to Man's Socks for details of yarn etc

These were made entirely from leftovers - most of them 100% wool but the odd glen might've slipped in. I thought I would use all my scraps but no I still have enough to make another pair of these or something similar.

The only drawback is the what seems to me to be hundreds of ends to sew you can image I've decided to make them my own socks and therefore haven't bothered....

Socks for Hermine

Hermine is a friend who lives a very quiet life in a lovely forest in Holland.

I think she will appreciate the delicate beads and will have the time and patience to hand wash them!

Charity Two

These made for a woman.

Both pairs are being sent to a charity in Bend Oregon that is calling for hats and socks that can be distributed to the homeless.

Oregon is freezing cold ... much colder than it EVER gets here in Wellington.... and maybe 100% wool will be welcome.

Charity Socks

The challenge was not to start a new (whole) skein and create socks that folk would be happy to wear.

These are made for a man. My husband has been eyeing them up but concedes that he doesn't need a new pair just at present.
