Not in a Pink Spin

Imagine my GLEE when I realised I wouldn't have enough green to finish the WHOLE job.

I would have to use COLOUR.

And the Lucky Man (aka The Bloke), for all his SNAGiness, wouldn't be seen dead in these.

IMAGINE my disappointment!

I know!  Looooong aren't they?

Lucky LADY it is then.

LUCKY they FIT me so well don't you think?

AND .... I've been spinning and dying.

Got tricky with one slubbed strand and one fine even strand of Alpaca.

Now what to make with it....?

OK.  Just one more....

Sung to the tune of Holy Holy Holy (naturally)

Holy Holy Holy. Lord Sock Almighty
Early in the morning our feet shall rise to thee.
Holy Holy Holy. Myrthiful and flighty.
Sock in two pair-sons, blessed duality.

Ooooh they are yummy! I love the way the raised pink stitch (whatever one calls it) looks like an anklet.
Nice pink spinning too!
