consultation socks

here are my latest pair of socks knitted as my manager, gil, and i drove around the state from ballarat to morwell, swan hill, shepparton, thornbury, dandenong and croydon as part of the community consultation for the Victorian Charter of Safety and Wellbeing for Aboriginal Children and Young People (the consultants went to many more places than we did i should add - they covered the state)

i used the usual patons sock recipe and some gorgeous buttery soft wendy dennis polwarth wool (pilling already but just so soft and warm) in my favourite alice springs colours (they were going to be called my alice socks but they were so much part of the consultation it seemed churlish to call them anything else.

my second pair of socks this year and knitted in a record 5 weeks... this sounds all the more pathetic when you see how susan spent her weekend.......
