More socks!

Thank you so much to everyone who continues to send socks for the Yarndale Sock Line.  I've collected another six pairs from Black Sheep Wools this morning and I think that there are some more waiting for me in Skipton too.

I haven't forgotten my promise to put them all up on Pinterest so that everyone can see them, but an unexpected family death last week has disrupted all of our plans as we try to come to terms with what has happened.  I hope you will understand.

I will put the pictures up as soon as I can and will do it this week if I am able to, but it might be after Yarndale now (yes, I will still be going and I hope to see lots of you and your socks there!).  Rest assured that all of the socks will be documented and a careful note made of them and where they eventually go.

Here are the pairs I picked up at Black Sheep this morning.  All of the socks are so lovely, and I know each pair is going to be a very special gift.



It's only four sleeps now until Yarndale so the countdown has begun!

    1. We're coping, thank you, Jo. I'm lucky to have the socks and Blogland to remind me that there is still a "normal" life. Looking forward to catching up with you at Yarndale :-) xx

  5. I am very sorry to hear of the unexpected bereavement in your family. It's a hard thing to share on your blog, yet I totally understand your desire to mention it. These grey areas between 'real' life and 'blog' life are tricky to handle. Sending you recovery wishes and sympathy. X

    1. Thank you. I wouldn't have mentioned it at all except that I had promised to upload the pictures of the Yarndale socks and I didn't want to seem to be breaking that promise. It's interesting that you talk about "real" life and "blog" life as although they are inextricably linked, there is a definite decision-making process involved in just what you choose to write about xx
