And here I am wearing them. or But at the moment I am not sure when to actually wear them as I know they will not look as good once they are washed,… Read More Rainbow socks! Yay!
Over the last week I have completed another repeat of the cables. I anticipate having to do four more repeats approximately so I have completed a third of one side – hence a sixth of a whole cushion cover ! since it has two sides.
