The Wednesday Stuff

First up Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday:

Not strictly on my workdesk which usually is the kitchen worktop/glass hob lid or table but I really need to shout from the rooftops about these.  24 pots of WOW embossing powders by Sheena Douglass and I won them in a facebook competition.  I am so happy right now with these little pots of sparkly indulgence and can't wait to get my heat gun out from the depths of my stash box.

For more workdesks this week please stop by Stamping Ground

Next up is Work In Progress Wednesday

I started a new mystery sock on new years day.  I didn't make a single pair of socks (apart from the sock journey thingy) during 2011 so, in an attempt to use up some stash yarn, I decided to do the mystery socks in the SKA group over on Ravelry

This is to the end of clue 1.  The next section is available on the 8th Jan.

The only other WIP I have is the Advent Scarf.  I'm currently up to day 22 of 24.  I've shortened a few sections and missed a couple out as the yarn is running dangerously close to empty but I'm almost done and have really enjoyed it.  The yarn is Aade Long. I love the long colour changes in it.

I'm desperate to find out what a mystery sock is!! One that no place to put your foot in maybe?? Or has 7 toes?? Please show it when you've finished - you'll make me a happy LLJ!!
Happy 2012!
Hugs, LLJ #34 xx
