and now for the photos-
boudica sock kit from willy wonka fibers. love love love the bfl :-)
as i was finishing the second sock late friday night, the history channel had a 2 hour program about boudica, how weird is that?
sock mods, i did my anatomical toes toe up, a slip stitch heel, and changed the top of the cuff like the eleanora sock top.
at long last, the blocked bohus! for hat blocking, i used an 8" styrofoam ball, and sliced off about an inch all around the sides.
thank the fsm, the scarf blocked out nicely, i was worried about the stranded borders pulling in.
christmas prezzie for ddil, the blue shimmer bohus will go perfectly with her nordic looks.
dd at her awards ceremony. she got the national honors society collar, the gold honors cords, and the over 4.0 gpa gold tassle, you go girl!
using all those little grey cells is exhausting ;-)
