Is It Bedtime Yet?

Well for a moment last night I thought I wasn't going to get these done.

 Mr Miffy brought home some cutting out that needed to be done so I spent a merry hour cutting out the sides of pyramid.  I should explain that Mr Miffy is a primary school teacher and as some of you will know a teachers work is never done, even when his home help joins in with the resources prep.

However with a concerted effort (read "I turned off the computer so I could not be distracted by Ravelry") I managed to get the toe decreases done.  This morning I grafted the toe and right now Middle is wearing his new bed socks.

If you want to read more about the socks then check out my WIP Wednesday post.  If you want to read about some more Finished Objects then head over to Tami's Amis and see what other folk have posted.

They look awesome! You're right, a teacher's work is never done. They don't get paid enough, that's for sure.

The socks are great! I have to turn off the computer to avoid distraction too:)

Those socks are beautiful, I love the rich colour and the lovely, cozy-looking rib. I wish I had a pair on right now, it definitely doesn't feel like mid-April in my house at the moment!

Oooh I wish I hadn't seen these socks because now I want to knit a pair for myself. The color is GORGEOUS.

Darn, those are fabulous socks. They look like they fit perfectly.

Sometimes it seems that Ravelry makes makes one knit less, not more ... buy more yarn, and use less of it.... Oh well, I wouldn't give it up entirely!

Great socks! Hopefully Middle will tell you this time if they get a hole. :-)

Thanks all for the fab comments. Middle is still very happy and has worn them everynight since they were finished. The weather here has been good in the day but gets pretty cold still at night.
