Waves of Blue

Well, these were started ages ago... I had no trouble knitting the first sock, but then I got a really bad case of SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) and I didn't cast on that second sock for a really, really long time. But I did, finally, and slowly knitted away, when I didn't have anything else to do. And I finished them, and I tried them on, and it was a LOT smaller than the first one, it was a whole size smaller, 20 stitches smaller, to be exact. I had to rip and cast on that sock, again, a second time... it was slightly demoralizing, to say the least. Still I plodded on, and finished that sock again... course I still had to re-knit the toe... this sock is not hard, I don't know what the heck had gotten into me! Anyway, they'll be warm and toasty on my tootsies come cold weather. And a cheerful blue that will keep the "blues" away! Oh, hey, I took these pics myself! I do yoga. Sometimes.


  1. I love your blog Sis! I really do. It's better than just about any magazine I can think of.

    Oh, and remember that apple I told you about? You know the one... I saved it the pit of doom? YOU Remember! I was full of anger and spite and contemplated throwing the apple on the floor just to see it destroyed but then I realized it would serve a better purpose as food (because I'm too poor to buy a replacement) then as an apple saucy mess on the floor.

    Well, a couple of days latter I bit into and.... it was rotten. :) All green and shiny on the outside, and dark and gooky on the inside.

    Ha ha ha ha! What do you think that means? Me? Well, I think that it means sometimes God allows us to turn our angst into apple sauce. :)

  2. I just started my first sock ever, thanks to Whimsically Plucky's help and I'm really loving this knitting of socks! I love that blue and your socks look great!!!

  3. Rose, darlin', I know it... and thank you for the sweet comments on the blog, I hope it helps your busy, legalese days feel like good days. Muah!

  4. *butting in rudely*

  5. I love all of your socks. I love fun socks!
