And Finally...

We have Glynis! Or the first sock of Glynis , given the pattern is for a pair of socks. Unless I'm imagining myself as Dobby the House Elf from Harry Potter , who wore odd socks .
So far, I have tried three yarns (third time lucky) , several pairs of needles including metal circulars , bamboo double pointed, wooden double pointed (had a few cases of points snapping off when knitting three together!, ouch!)
Have actually finished two socks , but the first one didn't fit , too tight and awkward. This one is loose and squishy , just how I like it! Also the cuff is a bit shorter , as I am not overly fond of long cuffs , and at present neither is my shoulder (successful visit to Osteopath , so second sock shouldn't take so long!)And I managed to successfully Kitchener stitch the toe , doesn't look bad a t all .
Just hope I finish on time for the KAL - finished socks to be photographed and posted by 11.59 BST, talk about cutting it fine.
Better go and feed the hordes now - they are getting fidgety!

Glynis looks fantastic, I can't wait to get my copy of the book, it has been delayed yet again!

Glad you finally got it just right for you.
