Mockery Socks are finished :-)

I have finished  my Mockery socks :-) Just love the pattern and it was just so easy. It is available here  as a free PDF download thanks to  Live to Knit . Pattern was easy to remember and relaxing to do. I needed something that I could just sit and do without too much thought. Yarn was bought from Stranded in OZ Melissa has a stall at the local Port markets. BTW she did tell me the dyelots were not from the same batch.
I know the 2 socks are different. They were bought as hand-dyed 50gm balls. I love the way each ball knit up uniquely and am not at all fussed that they are so different. They are socks with personality.
I have nearly finished another sock too and just love this one. Still have to make its mate though
Thank goodness I am starting to feel a whole lot better. It has taken a while and there were a couple of days last week that I missed altogether. Sometimes you do have to slow down to get better.
I have also made block 16 of Nearly Insane but have not taken a photograph of it yet so stay tune. It is simple but sweet.
Cheers Lynne

Great socks! :-) And the colour is great, I love this blue-green colour. Thanks for linking to the pattern. It looks as if I have to put them on my to-do-list.

Just to come over and say hi. I am a member of the CWB blog and can't wait to see your first block on there too. I am working hard on mine. It takes quite awhile to stitch each piece on. I have not applique for a long time. It's very enjoyable!!!

lovely socks, I adore handpainted ones. Thank you for your visit to my blog and your nice comment. These old sewing machines are gorgeous. Wonder what they all sewed:)
