The End of the Decade
I love my Pink Geek socks! Perfect for curling up with Hellboy and working on my next sock project. Seriously, the older I get, the geekier I get. I told a friend the other week that I was going to be a little old lady, wrapped in hand knitted shawls and socks, wearing my bright pink Converse sneakers, rockin' up to the comic book shop: "Is the new Hellboy in yet?" I'm looking forward to it! I have absolutely no trouble with getting older. Perhaps because I've always been surrounded by brilliant little old ladies who showed me how it should be done!
The socks were a dream to make though - easy to read pattern, lots of fun in the bobbles and lace. I did order some yellow yarn that I'm hoping will make a follow up pair with. Is it just me, or is good yellow sock yarn a little trickier to find?
VCM has started on her first socks, too. A brown pair for Papa. When quizzed on the recipient, she smiled, "well, of course. He gets the practice pair and when I get good, I make myself some!" Can't argue with that.
Anyway, bring on the pigs of Sylvester! (Those in Austria will know what I mean!)
