I went off them a bit whilst knitting them as I'm not keen on the yarn, it splits really easily and it's dyed in such a way that the shading makes the socks look odd.
I don't think this pair will take quite as long as the last ones did.
There used to be many family get togethers for weddings and christenings, but as the family have grown up it seems that we only meet up for funerals these days, so it was really lovely to see everyone under more pleasurable circumstances.
I have to say thank you to Eleanor as I took these photos from her camera, for some unknown reason mine stayed in my bag.
Another period drama which has been shown this weekend is Downton Abbey. I had wanted to watch this the first time it had been shown but somehow missed it. The seven episodes were repeated over Saturday, Sunday and Monday and I thoroughly enjoyed watching. It's all set to return to our screens again in Autumn.
It's reported that Downton Abbey won hands down in the ratings war. I hope the BBC will recommission another series of Upstairs Downstairs in 2011 and not let this put them off, as I for one will enjoy watching both of these wonderful series.
