I finally got around to making my sock blockers - following the tutorial from Little Sesame Knits.
Two plastic table mats will make 4 blockers. All for £1.58. Bargain!
I tested them with my Harvest Sock Swap sock. It looks very nice now it's blocked . I have the goodies ready to put into the package and it will be on its way across the Atlantic in the morning.
I may have developed a crush on washcloths/dishcloths. I must admit I didn't really see the appeal, but I've made a few as gifts this week in preparation for Halloween. They are very satisfying as they knit up ever so quickly - usually in the space of one TV drama. I've been using a few balls of Calmer, which seems like a real extravagance, but there aren't enough to make anything substantial and the purple colour is perfect for Halloween.
Can you see the bat on this one? Tell me it does look like a bat...
