Orange Friday 001

Orange you glad it's Friday (on a Sunday hahaha) is a new meme by Sarah Bettey  
Can you spot the orange stocking?

I've been knitting these stockings for Stockings for Soldiers Project that sends a box of goodies
to Australian Soldiers deployed who won't be coming home for Christmas. Amongst other goodies are these miniature stockings that are smaller than a pen and holds a packet of life saver (because they save lives). I also coordinated the Christmas card portion this year. 3000 military soldiers will benefit from this wonderful project. Other items included in the box are Anzac Biscuits, Rum Balls, Jila Mints, Minties,  Nuts & Bolts, Eucalyptus Lollies, Chuppa Chups, cocktail Aussie flags, Puddings, majority of which have been handmade or baked by volunteers all over Australia.
The colours for the stockings are Red, Green, White and Gold (yellow), I just had some orange wool and was testing all colours and it happened to be this Meme.
