And here's the evidence:
Now, I know these are different shades of green. This is due to the fiasco involving little1 and the lovely free mint green merino from Yarn Forward. We don't talk about it so you will have to read the old blogpost for that. It just has far too many bad memories.
Anyway, I quite like the bright green and purple and the yarn used was Patons Fairytale Dreamtime 4ply for both the green and the purple. This is 100% wool and can be washed on a 30 degree delicate wash although i've found that this particular yarn doesn't wash well and felts really easily. But it is just so flaming soft and wasy to work with that I have to use it again and again.
Next on to my hot pink spider socks. I will have enough socks for winter this year!!!

And being modelled rather gorgeously by He Who Pays :o) This is a birthday present for my brother in law who works on the rig supply ships in the North Sea so thought it might come in handy in winter. I'll let you know whether he likes it or not.
The green and purple socks are nearly finished, hopefully I'll get the chance to crack on with them at Knit N Natter tonight. And I'm hoping to cast on a pair of Spider Socks in hot pink in the next couple of days.
Now all I have to do is decide whether to go to a talk Alice Starmore is giving in An Lanntair on Friday about her new book Road Movies. Hmmmm, think it would be good?
