A drum roll please.............

....................and a long line of trumpeters going Da da da da da da daaaaaaaaaa!!!!!


Ladies and gentlemen,

I present to you.............



The long awaited..................


GLAM ROCK SKI SUIT SOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






Made for the Simply Knitting Magazine Knit a pair of socks for a celebrity competition. Now for you Boosh fans out there, this is obvious, but for all you uninitiated folk, these are for Noel Fielding (Vince Noir) from the TV comedy The Mighty Boosh. In the first series there is an episode called Tundra, where Vince wears an outfit which he calls The Glam Rock Ski Suit. These are based on that suit. Here is a little clip of it.........(hope it works)

"Ice flow, nowhere to go, ice flow, nowhere to go......"

Sorry, I couldn't find a still picture of it!! So there you go. I am not entirely happy with them, I can't seem to do anything about the white bits showing through where I have twisted the spare yarn at the back. I am scared to wash and block in case they go horribly wrong!

I have added a hit counter to the blog, I have had more hits than 7 (I hope) but I started it at 1 today so get clicking and get that number up for me!

My Fabel sock yarn has been delayed from garnstudio. Only by a week or so though, so not too bad. Some of the other colours are going to take up till end of Feb so I'm glad I ordered the colours I did.

Those are great, I have yet to watch Mighty Boosh but they certainly match up with the ski suit! Best of luck with the competition!
