Sidetracked


I started the Rainforest socks with an idea of putting them in the 'unfinished but for a gift' stash. Then realise that, as they were in variegated shades of green, they'd be ideal for Mum. So they'll be finished. Eventually.

Thing was I knit a banana, which DH promptly took a shine to. He showed people at Church & they've started placing orders. #bananas currently knitted & taken - 9. # bananas ordered & awaiting stuffing - 6. Proceeds to Tearfund.

So I suppose I should get on with stuffing, sewing together, & applying faces. Then I can finish the Rainforests for Mum's Christmas present. & maybe even start on July's socks.
