Green Again

I finished the pair of crazy zauberball socks last week. The second one turned out more glowingly green than I'd expected.



















I was going to feature it for St Patrick's day, but was so excited about my day out that it slipped my mind. Today I've had a quiet time at home. I came across the socks while making a token effort to tidy my big table. You can see they're not blocked. I haven't invested in sock blockers yet. Any tips on that subject will be gratefully accepted.

Oh and the good news is that there's plenty of this yarn left over. Probably enough for another pair of socks if I use something else for the heel and toe. This may be just what I need to take the plunge into having a go at toe-up socks. Meanwhile I'm well on my way with another sock in a hand-dye of my own.

hmm sock blockers... how about feet? ;)
Not the right thing I know but it gave me a giggle.

Nup! would have to wet the socks and sit still while they dry slowly--that's not going to happen:)
