The wonderful thing about tiggers
Is tiggers are wonderful things!
Their tops are made out of rubber
Their bottoms are made out of springs!
They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy
Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
I'm the only one
I-I-I'm , the only...
How do I get down now?
All of which is another way of saying that I finished a pair of socks for H:
Tigger socks, in Opal Rainforest 1617. I wanted some of this yarn for H when it first came out but missed it when it was discontinued so when they brought it back again I snagged it straight away!
These are 72st socks to my standard pattern (20 rounds of 2x2 rib, 60 rounds for the cuff and a square toe to finish off). The one change to normal was the short row heel. I started out with a heel flap heel but, as you see
It just didn't look right, it interrupted the stripes and I've yet to see a Tiger whose stripes go at right angles to each other so I pulled back and short rowed down to 14 sts and back.
And speaking of Pooh - this is Piglet
Our garden hedgehog, newly christened!
