last pair before christmas

Here are my multi-talented Christmas socks. Well perhaps not Christmas socks as such, but socks finished before Christmas. As it is now midday on Christmas Eve, I can't see another pair of socks being finished by tomorrow.

Christmas sock as decoration? Well, why not? The sock can't be seen too well because of the brightness behind them. This is a small tree I bought at Woolworths post-Christmas sales a couple of years ago. Originally priced at $17.50, it had been reduced a few times. I paid 0.75 cents for it, and that included the decorations. I brought it with me when I left home a week ago.

Wesley, the bear, also came with me and his mother Susannah. He's a bit of a tourist, so the socks joined him in having a good look over Sydney from this third floor balcony, just outside my bedroom. I can see so much more than from either of the the two lower floors of the house. So here are my tourist socks, eyeing off leafy Killara and beyond.

I wish these Town and Country socks would go back to Sirdar and say there are people in the colonies who love the sock wool. I've others made from this brand and they are great to knit, wear and wash.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get lots of stash expansion wool and knitting goodies. I've enjoyed this KAL very much to December and have really enjoyed seeing people who haven't knit socks before, find that the satisfaction from them is great. I've also enjoyed all the photos. Thanks to you all.

Merry Christmas to you too Jan. Hopefully Sirdar will replace the yarn with something better!
