A brief Wednesday catch-up

Just a brief one today because I'm immersed in a couple of bigger projects this week - one necessary, the other not quite so much. I have, though, achieved one little thing and that is to finish the fourth pair of socks in my self-imposed Six Socks challenge. I took my time over these, but…
