I know I'm a slow knitter, and I finally finished this pair of socks some time ago. But I was even slower getting around to stitching up the side seam. There they sat, and sat, waiting patiently for that single inside seam on each to be sewn. At last they were completed, a nice pair of 4ply socks. I wanted to use up the remaining white and coloured sock yarn from a previous pair, so had to go and purchase the blue wool to go with it. Now I've got left over blue sock yarn - that's the way it goes.

A few days I caught up with my old school friend Merilyn, who lives in the South Island. She had flown up to Wellington with her son to attend a Memorial Service for her brother. It's certainly sad when your siblings pass away. She told me she really, really wanted to see me so of course we drove down and had a lovely catch up with her and her son before the family plans took place. We chose a local cafe for coffee and scones and sat and chatted away. Merilyn is one of those friends who you just pick up the conversation with, the next time you meet.

Merilyn does spinning and had brought me up some more of her lovely home spun wool, in a lovely rich brown shade. I'm sure I will be able to put it to good use.
