Birthday Socks

I have finished these socks just in time. Once I have done the toe seam they will be sent off to my eldest daughter. She is 26 years old on Sunday and is a lovely dauhter any mother would be proud of.
I am also sending a handknited beret in camoflage colours for her to wear with her doc Martens, but I dont have a photo of that : ( Last year she went bungee jumping for her birthday - I think its a flying lesson this year LOL

Crochet Progress........

I am getting a bit braver with my crochet now and have started a scarf for me. It is made from Hayfield Bonus Aran and feels very soft and snuggly.

The pattern is called Fan Lace Scarf from the book The Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques by Jan Eaton. I'm glad Jane showed me how to read charts because the written instruction are indecipherable to me so I am just looking at the chart and hoping. I have done 12" so far so only another 48" to go!!!!
