FAL Finish: Yet More Socks, Again!

finishalong logo 200px

The final pair of socks on my Q3 FAL list is finished!

These are knitted from 85%/15% merino/nylon yarn from Made By Penguins called 'Solar' and are incredibly soft - they'll be like wearing clouds on your feet, I imagine!  I bought it as part of a 'lucky dip' from Made By Penguins and the offer is still available: lucky Dip 100g merino/nylon; lucky Dip 20g merino/nylon (A very good price for very good yarn, especially if you buy four 100g hanks! I'm still tempted to get another set...)

This is item 17 from my Q3 FAL list and I'll be linking up with the finishes party when the time comes.

One of the Wooliam gang mice on instagram ran a sunflower competition this summer and Mini Archie et al entered with enthusiasm but were let down by late sowing, late planting out, and fairly useless compost (finding peat-free compost round here is a challenge so I ended up using Lidl's and I'm not that impressed with it to be honest) and so what could have been 15' sunflowers ended up being just 3' high by the closing date. They're still growing, though, so we're hopeful of them at least reaching the tops of the canes before the frosts hit!
I is comfier than I finked I would be on this sunflower

And there's even room for Billy!

Thanks for popping in!


  1. I love the idea of wearing cm clouds on your feet 😁
