Gosh!, I've never had so many FOs to post in a single blog entry so shall keep the chattering for next time.

Happy new year Sally!

Great FOs you've got there! I like how the socks turned out to be so identical.

Tequila sunrise took up 4.5 balls for a XS size?? Wonder what I can do with only 3 balls that I have...hmmm..
