The socks are giving their sassy "over the shoulder" pose. They were really fun to make--the stripes are great and tigery. But seriously, people, these are some big-ass socks.
They're about as big as sleeves on a sweater. Well, a child's sweater. A big-ass kid's sweater.
Hey, did you notice something funny about that sock on the left? Kind of weirdly dark at the toe?
Yup. I ran out of yarn. Arrrgh! I had some very very similar yarn, but it is just a teeeeny bit different. I suppose a better, richer woman than I would have bought another skein to finish it off, but you know, I'm a worse(r), poorer woman, so it just didn't happen.
I am rich in several things, however. Rich in cat litter, cat fur dust bunnies, and cats, yes, but also rich in friends! Last Friday when I got home from work, I found my customary US Weekly in the mailbox. Yay! Then I opened the door and saw an Amazon box. EEEEEEE! Inside, I found this:
It's the Yarn Harlot's new book, sent from the beautiful and talented Rebecca as a "we WILL graduate" encouragement present. Awwww, so nice. I love it! I'm trying to read it sparingly so it will last longer.
Graybaby was also a big fan of the book. Or, rather, the box that the book came in.
L'il Miss Chewy is trying to chew the book the way she chewed up the box.
I'd get rid of the box, but . . . it just makes her so happy. Can't begrudge a chewy cat.
