These beauties are a gift for my sister, who has only ever received a scarf from me before now.

The pattern is a prototype from the lovely Jane Lithgow, which I volunteered to test. It wasn't an especially selfless act, I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it, and couldn't wait to give it a whirl!

The first one took me a week, the second took a day and a half. Second sock syndrome does not live in my house.

I'm off to visit the family tomorrow, and I'm hoping the receipient will be as pleased with them as I am. No worries if she isn't though, it'll save me making a second pair for myself.

Not since the discovery of Scrabulous has the internet shown such potential for draining evert minute of my free time.

My invite arrived while I had a house guest, so I snuck online when she went to bed and played for 2 hours.

THen I went away for a few days.

I'm really hoping that this week at work is a quiet one.

(I'm purlpirate there too btw)
