Because I need more socks! Yah, right. As many of you know I have a slight addiction to knitting socks. I have come to terms with this, and now I just knit them without a care in the world. It may read on my gravestone...crazy sock lady and I am o.k. with that.
This lovely pair was started well before the New Year. They were a test knit for my talented friend Robin. The pattern has since been released and it is free. Wonderful, clear pattern with beautiful results. If you are thinking of knitting up some pretties, choose these, you won't be sorry.
- Socks stats:
- Pattern:My cup of a tea
- Yarn: Sweet Georgia Toughlove Socks in the color Orchid
- Needles: size 1.5
Next pair finished are the socks that Football playoffs knit. I may have mentioned I cast these on because I needed something to keep my hands busy, while I wanted a nerve wracking football game. Once I began, I couldn't stop.
- Sock stats:
- Pattern: Basic Vanilla Pattern
- Yarn: S.R Kertzer On your Toes socks
- Needles: 1.5
I may or may not have two more pairs on the needles. I am not telling for fear of being ran out of town as the crazy sock lady. Not everyone is as understanding of my condition as me. :)
Okay, now I have to add this complete and total fan girl moment I had today. Actually a few minutes before creating this post. My friend Melanie and I have long had a friendship crush on Jolie from the blog Joeycake. I am not ashamed to say there are time when we discuss Jolie's posts as if she were our best friend. There are even text messages between us, where the topic will be , " Did u c Joeycake's blog post 2dy. omg u hve 2 read it, I almst p'd my pnts!". We have even gone so far as to say, things like, "Can you imagine if she were our friend?". Please don't judge us, we are good people. There are just people out there in blogland that you feel a connected to, (not in a creepy way). Getting to the point, she commented on my blog! Which resulted in an immediate text to Melanie! I will spare you the message, since I am sure you get the idea from the previously mentioned texts.
I will stop shoving me and Melanie's new BFF in your face and leave you with a video. Happy Knitting and have a great rest of your weekend!
