Clown Barf Done

The clown barf socks are completed and I've given them to Mum who really likes them. I've learned a lesson from these socks - if you buy a crazy colourway, knit it straight away as the odds are you might not like it 6 months down the track!

The stats:
Cast on: 7th June
Cast off: 19th June
Yarn: Regia Bamboo colour #1062
Needles: 2.5mm dpns
Pattern: my usual non-pattern - 60 sts, top down, short row heels, standard toe.

Another WIP I'd sort of forgotten about is this Reindeer toy kit that I bought around Christmas 2006. I got it to make up an order to the amount needed for free postage and, of course, I only needed to spend about £6 and spent over £16. Oh well! I've been picking it up every now and then since the beginning of the year and knitting another body part. ;-) The Rooster Almerino yarn is gorgeous! Its a bit splitty but knits up into a beautiful fabric and being 50% alpaca it is killer soft. I'm planning to finish this up fairly soon. I've got a bit of a thing for reindeer, particularly Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, so anyone who knows me well will not be surprised by this project! (Right Meg?)
