Small Socks

Tiny Tottenham Hotspurs home strip socks. I have made them for a friend who wants them for some kind of demonstration-I am not exactly sure what. He was talking about it in the pub and I said that I could make some finger socks so I have. I had to think a bit about how to turn the corner to make the heel but worked out a method-I just went back and forth for half the circle for four rows then joined it together again. They are resting on my ever lengthening stripey blanket. I have been making more monsters this week so the blanket has been left alone. I can't wait to finish it!
Tonight I have started six dolls for storytelling next week. If I get them finished I will show you on Sunday. I am very excited about them! I am really looking forward to the decorating and finishing after all the body and limb making has been finished.
We have decided to go out for the day tomorrow to places in Kent we have either not or seldom visited. It has been a long week and it should be nice to get out, especially if it stays as lovely as it has been today and yesterday. I hope whatever you are doing that you have a lovely weekend!

They are hilarious! Is he doing a little finger-dance?

Sarah said...

I am not sure Kat. He is a secondary school French teacher and I had teh feeling it was to demonstrate something to his students-but I don't know what. I shall find out from his wife next week-I work with her so will ask!
