town and country socks from Sirdar
Here are my socks, finished this morning. First they are Christmas decorations on my small tree, brought when I moved out. This tree was a real bargain. It cost me.75 cents from Woolworths in post-Christmas sales several years ago and the price included ornaments! It had originally been marked at $17.50. Unfortunately, the background is very bright and this has muted the colours. Wesley, the bear, was also packed, along with Susannah, his mother, and he's a tourist. He's on the house's third floor balcony and he's surveying leafy Killara and beyond. The socks decided to keep him company. They can see a long way from up here, all around Sydney, out to the Blue Mountains and well south. I need to use binoculars, but I think I can see down to Southern Highlands on a clear day, so Wesley is getting a good view. Mind you, he's being naughty , sitting on the balcony wall. it's a very long way to the bottom if he were to fall.
I have others made from Sirdar Town and Country. They are comfortable, wear well and wash well too. I even throw mine in the dryer with no ill effects. I'm sorry it won't be available any more.
I hope you all have a Happy Christmas.
