So, I finished the Duets socks.

I think they turned out really well.

The yarn knit up really well, and there is a tonne of the pink etc yarn left over.

I’m also quite pleased that I had enough of the brown to do a fair-sized ribbed cuff at the top. That finishes it off rather nicely.

Oh! Oh! See my new (to me, anyhow) sock blockers?

My Aunt gave these to me for my birthday. She’s got this enormous barn filled to the eaves with antiques and managed to dig these out when I mentioned my sock lurve.

They’re not particularly of good quality (they’re warped and cracked) and they’re functionally useless to me (they’re much smaller than my feet) but they do display the socks nicely, hmm?

Anyhow, all I’ve been knitting lately is socks.

I think it’s time for a bigger project.

Husband’s sweater, perhaps?


About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. I vote for more socks……like Fleece Artist Sea Wool Socks – I got your order – it’s ready and waiting! Happy Birthday! Belated….

  2. I have been a bit undecided about the Duet yarn until seeing yours now – the socks look wondeful. Dang, another thing for the ‘wish list’ lol.

  3. Connie – Thanks for the birthday greeting, belated or no. I’ll be posting pictures of my Sea Wool project shortly.

    Kellie – My wishlist is so long, I’ll have to be alive and married (so as to get Christmas, birthday AND anniversary gifts) for a hundred years. Sigh. Ah well. Could be worse.
