Toastie Toes!

I’ve been so tired recently in the evenings that I’ve been forcing myself away from the sewing room (& the computer – failed there!) to sit downstairs, watch telly, eat chocolate (not much forcing needed!) and crochet.
I recently crocheted a hat (my first ever hat!) for a bloggy friend, but forgot to take pics of it.  I was pleased with how it turned out & my kids didn’t hold back in their feedback on how ridiculous it looked on me (I don’t suit hats at all!).
Some time ago I started a pattern for bed socks (I know, I’m a Granny at 40!) just because I’d never made socks before.
After the buoyancy of my hat finish, I regrouped and got the tricky socks out again.  
And voila!
My feet aren’t as big as the Ship Yards they look like here!
I’m really pleased with them, even though the cream wools are different (I ran out half way through!), one of the heels is wonky, and one sock is longer than the other (ahhhh the incognito wonders of photography!).
I might keep these as a wee stocking filler for one of my daughters who LOVES bedsocks and slipper socks (they could be used for either they’re so snuggly).
So 2 new crochet projects attempted and completed. 
Mmmmmm, what shall I do next?
Have a great Wednesday!
