More skulls & more socks...what a surprise!

An early birthday pressie from Big Sis, a mini hottle-bottle with a knitted skull cover. Very dinky. I love it.
Finally got around to finishing these fairly plain socks that I started in January. These are knitted in EasyKnits Bamboo mix, colour way Strawberry shortcake, on 2.5mm circs. The yarn knits up beautifully and the colour works really well. The yardage is also good and I have enough left for a pair of fingerless mittens.
I like the effect of the reversed wavy line which runs down the front of each sock - though I cursed myself for adding it as I lost count of the times I went wrong and had to fiddle and fix to make them match.
