For the few regular readers I have..I bet this Sock Madness stuff is getting kind of boring isn't it?
Please bear with me. I promise I have other stuff to talk about..it's just this thing kind life keeps getting in the way of my blogging time. And so when I do blog..it's about the madness that has taken over (kind of.)
Anyway, this is how I spent Thursday night, and ALL DAY Friday:
And I wonder why I have gained 20 + pounds this last year..but I'm happy..(er).
So here they are:
Well, they are really cool. There is a spiral that wraps around the leg, an eye of partridge heel (my first time), and a stockinette foot. Oh and the cuff is way cool as well..It's called an "oblique rib".
The pattern is called (mad)tini socks..hence why this next picture is my feet posing with a martini shaker. Now if only I had had some vodka on hand..I could have used a stiff one after that marathon knitting session!
Guesstimated time from start to finish??? Around 30 hours. Yeah baby!
And that my friends..is why I am satisfied. The Snickers did me well.
ROUND 3 HERE I COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(oh, and by the way...my niece took some adorable pictures of my grand niece Sophia. A more photogenic baby I have never seen. And the best part..in some of them she is posing with my hand knits!..Tune in tomorrow!)
