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

I thought the second appley sock was going to be boring after that first hiccup, but at some point, I lost track of where I was in the chart and all of a sudden, I had an extra row of zigs where there should have been zags. Not to worry, I ripped a couple of rows and all was right with the world again.

I must confess that I love these little socks. I don’t know if it was the yummy yarn or the smooth pattern or that people far and wide have been admiring them or fond thoughts of the person they’re going to live with, but even with the rough patches, I really enjoyed knitting these lovelies. I felt like a process knitter for once in my life.

Pattern: Night of the Living Dead Socks (wasn’t crazy about the pattern write-up, but the idea was super fun and I figured it out – this is NOT a great pattern for your first pair of socks).

For a change of pace, let’s talk about the Claire de Lune yarn.
Clair de Lune means moonlight in French.
Left Zombie Sock & moon
and is the name of the third movement in a piano suite by Claude Debussy.
and a song written by Gabriel Fauré.
Right Zombie Sock
set to the words of the poem by Paul-Marie Verlaine.

which has absolutely nothing to do with Kevin Bacon.

After the second sock gave me trouble, I did a bit of marathon knitting and was able to finish my gray socks for the Knit-A-Long after all. I got a kick out of the fact that I watched Mirror Mirror while knitting a mirrored sock; it was a better little Snow White flick than I was expecting.
I also watched Legend of the Guardians which was quite good. Finished grafting the toes during Leap Year (great romantic comedy if you’ve not seen it) and talked the husband into pausing while I ran outside to snap a couple of pics.

I like how these feel on my feet. (and no, my legs could not be any whiter. I think I could be a stunt double for Casper. Wait. Ghosts don’t need stunt doubles. I could be a body double for him. You know, in case he has really fat calves….and now I’m realizing, he doesn’t really have calves. nevermind.)
