I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

You may remember Bonita as my human shield from the House of Torment or the Ode written for her recent birthday. Most recently, she earned even more brownie points when she recommended the Walking Dead to me and loaned me the first couple of seasons on DVD. And so, it was only fitting that I make her Night of the Living socks (pattern by Cambria Washington) in this beautiful Dizzy Lettuce Claire de Lune yarn in the lichen colorway.

This is the prettiest cake I’ve wound up. It boded well for things to come.
Night of the Living Socks
I was right; I’m loving how this is knitting up. I just started the first run and can’t wait to drop the stitches.

Knitting & Crochet Blog Week hosted by Eskimimi Day 2:

Many moons ago, I was contemplating my first pair of fancy socks. I decided to go with the most popular pair on ravelry, the Monkey socks. The color was never a question. The flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz are blue, so clearly, I must have blue flying monkey socks. I cast off on Turtle and her Mr.’s wedding day and wore them with my boots to the reception. I still think of that day fondly each time I wear them.

What flying monkey project does the future hold?
There’s some Plucky Knitter Oz Primo Fingering in my stash.
Oz yarn
This yarn will be socks.

First, I check out the current Hunter Hammersen KAL —Linaria Bipartita Socks are on the horizon for April and we have ’til the end of May to finish. That’s doable. There are no bright green socks on the pattern page – I enjoy doing something a little different…….but I don’t think I love this pattern in green?

I flip over to see what socks other knitters have done with Oz on ravelry. Ran across a pair of Pergolas by modeste with leaves on them that I like. Why can’t I wrap my mind around knitting green socks that don’t have leaves on them? That’s an awfully weird rut to be in.

If you know anything about me, you know I’ve always got a Plan B. When I just cannot make a knitting decision, I follow the inspiration. Dizzy Lettuce Claire de Lune in the color Lichen and the Night of the Living Sock pattern both scream one of my friend’s names; I think I’ll just pair them up and hope the screaming stops.
