Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3)

Summer, Buddy Holly, the working folly
Good golly Miss Molly and boats
Hammersmith Palais, the Bolshoi Ballet
Jump back in the alley and nanny goats
18-wheeler Scammels, Domenecker camels
All other mammals plus equal votes
Seeing Piccadilly, Fanny Smith and Willy
Being rather silly, and porridge oats
A bit of grin and bear it, a bit of come and share it
You're welcome, we can spare it, yellow socks!

Ian Dury

Yes, I've finished my first Cookie A socks. Eunice in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Semi Solid in the colour Wheat. It was a complex but well written pattern which I really enjoyed. The pattern runs down into the heel flap but apart from that the construction is a for very normal flap and gusset top down sock.

I also love the sunny, bright, soft yellow yarn.
Ian was right!
