Socks and Sewing

I can't show you the secret thing I'm making at the moment... so you will have to do with new socks:Madder Ribbed Sock from Vintage Knitted Socks by Nancy Bush. In Lorna's Laces Safari. These are anniversary socks for Tony. 5 years on Saturday! (Looks like the present might be a tad late!)
On Sunday the Weather was so hideous I decided that I needed to get my birthday sewing machine out.I made this bag for my travelling sock project (colour co-ordinating and everything). I used this pattern, and it worked really well and all the mistakes I made were due to me not paying attention! I'm sure it will be 8 times faster next time.
I also made this ickle case for my Brittany DPNs from this pattern... cool eh?

Oh, I love the bags you have sewn - wonderful! Makes me want to get my sewing machine out :) Tony's socks have started off well.

Don't want to cause a stir but should there be a link to the patterns, I would love there to be one!!
