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.

Thanks for commenting on my blog Jan, and thank you for sharing your story. I pray God's protection and guidance for you through this time, and that you can look to him for comfort. He is bigger than everything, even the trials and sorrow of divorce.
