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

Lycaena virgaureae Socks

Lycaena virgaureae Socks

Another pair of socks is finished and I find myself reflecting. I hadn’t considered that using the scraps from old socks would make me think of the socks these leftovers originated from. Now, my scrappy Lycaena virgaureae socks are like a scrapbook for 6 other pairs of socks. Well, 5 finished pairs of socks and a Texas Stars cowl that I plan to knit. at some point. after I knit all the socks.

So, I started using the hashtag #casbahislikecrack, but the more I think about it, the more I hope the good people at Handmaiden are not offended because crack is bad for 1000 different reasons, but hopefully people get what I was trying to say. I digress.
Plucky Knitter yarn is all yummy. Plucky Feet doesn’t feel quite as nice in the hands as Primo Fingering, but I can tell it’s going to hold up and I can put up with just a tiny bit less softness for stitch definition this amazing.

and the color! My Word, the color! Every time I see these socks, my soul sings. The pattern was a fun knit and it’s fairly stretchy which I like in a sock. So, spend all your money on yarn and patterns because even though The Husband probably thinks a drug habit might be cheaper, knitting is legal and good for your brain, plus SOCKS!

Eating Brussels Sprouts makes me feel like a giant eating the heads off tiny cabbage patch kids. But I liked the flavor.

Eating Brussels Sprouts makes me feel like a giant eating the heads off tiny cabbage patch kids. I kind of love it.
