You are my sunshine

For those of you who use Feedreader or another program of that sort, I have to share with you the quote now found in my header:

"[Lady Bostock] considered, possibly correctly, that there is nothing that brings the sunshine into grey lives like a sock or two." - P.G. Wodehouse

Thank you, Dear, for pointing it out to me.

This is incredible. Check out the photo gallery, linked on the left side of the page.

The U.S. should do this.

Convicted of a minor crime like littering or parking in a no parking zone? Try making the offenders wear Hello Kitty armbands as punishment.

Socks and sock

I finally finished these socks that I started a few months ago. They are plain 2x2 rib knit from Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in powder blue.
I also finished this sock, knit from Fortissima Colori Socka Color, color 9094 (I found the label!). This is a plain stockinette sock, of which I haven't knit for quite some time (since my first couple of pairs); I was amazed at how quickly it went. I loved how I could pick it up and stop at any point without having to think about it at all. Great for car knitting, and I also found it incredibly soothing to knit while letting my brain work through other things. This sock also provided some practice time for knitting while reading and with my eyes closed. From now on I plan to have a stockinette sock in progress at all times.

(F had to take pictures too.)

This puts me at 3 1/2 pairs of socks for the year. My goal is 6 pairs and I'm pretty sure I'm going to make it! (Which means that I will have accomplished both of my New Year's resolutions. I don't think I've ever completed all my resolutions before.) I have 5 socks on the needles right now so I just have to finish those and that'll be it.


For some reason I have not been getting my comments on my e-mail, so don't leave a comment on an old post because I'll never know it's there.
