Twinkle toes

FO - Hedera socks


Pattern: Hedera by Cookie A.
Yarn: Louet Gems Opal
Needles: 2.75mm

Woot! I have new socks, I've made good progress on a previously stalled pair of socks, and we've just Freecycled our unwanted sofa. I love Freecycle - it's a complete win-win. The nice chap who turned up with a white van got a free sofa and we got rid of our old sofa just over 24 hours after posting an "offered" notice. Admittedly the old table lamp (also up on Freecycle) isn't going quite as quickly but then it's not taking up as much space in our living room. I was really relieved when the guy who took the sofa arrived in a van - one response to the ad asked whether the sofa would fit in a Picasso. It might, but only with great difficulty.

Plus I have new yarn and a shiny new pattern idea which I'm very excited about. I'm going to get knitting on that now whilst watching Spooks.

Those socks are absolutely lovely and I'm glad you have gotten rid of the sofa you didn't need any more and that it has found a good home.

Hope you have luck with the lamp, too!

I've always had good luck with Freecycle when I want to get rid of something, but I've never gotten anything from it. (Probably just as well!)

Lovely socks!
