Today’s the first day since mum gave me this damn cold that I’ve felt up to working, so I’m making some sailor snoods for the Christmas craft fairs. This is the first one. It’s drying right now, so hopefully it’s long enough!
Look what I got in the sock swap at 221b Con! novemberalexander created these by spinning the yarn, then hand-dyeing it so it would self-stripe. No, seriously. Look at that. Look how incredibly even the striping turned out. That was hand-done. And then he cranked an antique circular sock machine to make up the socks. They are so beautiful. Oh! And he packaged them in an evidence bag!
The bottom row shows three pairs I brought to the swap: Purple Socks of Sex, In Fact You’re an Army Doctor, and Bridesmaid socks.
