Mmm, it's orange season
The first of this year's crop. They're being a bit funny this year - still quite a bit of green but if I wait any longer the fruit fly get in and/or they fall and get eaten by bugs. So I think they may be destined for cooking/baking rather than eating on their own. Still, I love orange puddings, cakes, etc so it's no great loss! We're out of flour and eggs at the moment so it's off to the shops tomorrow.
My Thuja socks. I've turned the heel and am almost done with the gusset. There are a few errors, but they'll be house socks/bedsocks anyway so it really doesn't matter. That's why I used a cheap wool and an 8-ply pattern to start with - not investing huge amounts of money or time in my first effort.
