Brights or Not!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally finished theses socks they are a lot brighter in colour than the picture, it's been raining all day so it came out dull! I used Panda 8ply in Crazy Print colour way. The socks are called Take Five Socks and were pretty easy to do the pattern was easy memorised. These unfortunately are for a friend who offered $500.00 for them  as she saw me knitting them when we went down to see them at the weekend but being the sweet person that I am I said I would give them to her when  I finished. So these will be posted down this week as soon as I can get to the Post Office. These would have been my cheer me up happy socks. Oh well I at least made someone happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  On  a happier note I ordered a Spinning Wheel today so I am hoping to get it in the next week or so I have always wanted to try spinning wool so now I will get the chance. I am just sooooooooooo excited!


  1. Hi Margaretha,

    Lovely bright socks, I am sure shes going to love them. Spinning I hope you have a ball with that, somehow I am picturing you sitting at a spinning wheel, spinning wool, hope to see a picture of you at it.
    Thank you for the lovely comments you have left on my blog, your gift of thread looks lovely and thank you for it.
    Hope you are keeping well.

  2. Lucky friend. These are so happy, you must want to dance about when wearing these. Very generous of you to part with these.

  3. Those are lovely. I looked up the pattern on Ravelry (are you on Ravelry yet?) and I really like it. I may have to use some of my stash yarn to knit a pair of those.

    I'm so excited about your spinning wheel! What kind did you order and when does it arrive? Do you have any fiber yet?

  4. Lovely, happy socks!

    I am itching for my sandals! We are just heading into spring... finally!

  5. Oh, they look quite bright in the photo. I'm thinking they'd nearly blind you in person! Lovely friend you are to share like that. It's a lot of work!
