Socks for Simon

Simon is a newcomer but he's a motorcyclist too and seems genuinely committed to recovery. So it's always good to lead by example and show some generosity.  They took a bit longer than I had expected (trip to Aust in the middle) but they arrived at his place just earlier this week so he was so happy to receive them.. This is why I make socks... people love them and appreciate the care that comes with them.

..and a pair for Bill...

Bill (Iona's hubby) also rides... he's an "expert rider" loves his knee highs ...I got the information about what he'd want from Iona so he was quite touched by being given a pair of wool socks.

Socks for my motorcycling girlfriend

The motorcycling fraternity know about pure wool socks and Iona was delighted with her bespoke socks.

A number of socks.

Marco died in November and I had not caught up with my finished socks as we had been travelling. Since Marco's death I stopped doing anything... so now I'm catching up on my sock blog. However I have no idea when they were finished or any details... it's all a fog. There were at least one other pair but I didn't photo them. I have started knitting again but I'm keeping them plain and using scraps. My mental power is still not up for complicated patterns.
