Space junk

When you have small children, lots of STUFF gets all over the place. While there are many disadvantages, like treading on something small when you least expect it (ouch! You'd think I'd learn to look more closely...) and every space in the house being taken over by kid clutter, I've discovered that some of it is actually useful!
Take this rather unattractive ball, for example. It's perfect for neatening up my toe grafting on my socks.

Which are now finished! Comfortably before the end of February, which was my self-imposed deadline, though not without a setback involving a two-year-old and the removal of all four needles that we wont talk about.

I will try to post proof of the completed socks in the next couple of days.

Brilliant.Love the gorgeous green wool. I reckon I'd like to be wearing them come winter> Having survived my first winter in the central highlands of Vic...I could use em.. Do you follow a pattern or are you a natural sock knitting whiz? I'd love to know. P
