Have sock will travel

To Cornwall for a couple of days and then me Mammy and I are off to see the delights of Cardiff for the Bank Holiday weekend.

A 5 day weekend now why don't they come round more often?

Can't beat a sock as a travel project and if I don't pack anything else I should have a shiny new pair of socks to present to the other half for his birthday on Monday.

Thank you all for your lovely words about my little peg dolls - any suggestions for other literary country girls I should base the next one on? I have three more blank faces to illuminate.

Yay for travelling socks! :D

Hope you have a fabulous break with your Mum.

Also, how about Scarlette O'Hara? Or Elizabeth Bennet? Two different extremes, but two very strong females. :)

Have a lovely time with mumsie! Looking forward to seeing the finished socks...

How about Tess (of the D'Urbervilles)? A feisty lass, but with a sorry tale to tell - perhaps in her happier moments with Angel? (Thomas Hardy is one of my fave authors of all time).

Have a Fabulous holiday!
Hee.. yes, Scarlett and Tess!

Have a great time on your mini-getaway...I love the amazing green yarn of your sock. Socks truly are the most portable project.

Have a wonderful time away, and bring lots of pictures home with you! My hubby is from Wales, and I'm always longing for a better look. :0)

Long weekends are always good! Hope you have a lovely time.

Now, for country heroines...I'd definitely do the Bennett girls from P&P, or the Dashwoods from S&S, or even Emma (although I'm not overly fond of her myself)!

Catherine Earnshaw! So wild! And Jane Eyre.

Have a fabulous trip. What a lovely lot of places to go. Looking forward to photos of the west country!
