The last photo didn't contain any scale, but I think was pretty obvious that the socks in question were bloke socks! They're now finished, washed and gifted to my Dad who's 53 today. I went home for a flying visit to deliver teh spinning wheel I bought off Ravelry for my Mum's birthday, to get my roast dinner medicine, and to help Mum and Dad box up the loft as they're moving house!
On Saturday I also had a wonderful surprise my secret pal parcel had arrived from japan! Even more exciting than the lovely yarn was the extra knitting goodies inside! Only in Japan would you get safety pins with fishes heads as the catches!
Some silk gimu yarn
Some Noro silk Flower
And my favourite bit!
