And the socks were hung ...

on the tree. Seemed like a good idea at the time and it brightens up a dismal day but maybe the sun will shine later. We haven't seen it for a couple of days. The rain is good to have though.

These are my second and third pair of finished socks for SSoS. The top pair are my Wollmeise Socks knitted with Indischrot Wollmeise and the second pair was my first attempt at Magic Loop. The Magic Loop pair turned out quite well. The yarn used is Colinette Jitterbug in the Jewel colourway. I'm going to give Magic Loop another go at some stage. Once I got used to pulling and pushing the stitches around the needles it was very easy but I still enjoy using DPNs as I enjoy being able to go round without too much fuss.

So that's three down and three to go to meet my challenge of more than 5 pairs. I still have two pairs on the needles but they're still in the first sock stage.

That's a very good looking tree - made even more handsome by the addition of handmade socks!
