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

I volunteered to knit a pair of socks, selected blue yarn, and immediately started to re-think my color choice. Was the blue perhaps too smurfy? Then I saw it in person. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is exactly the color that Cookie Monster must be in real life. I am in LOVE. It’s got this depth to the color that makes me imagine Cookie is in my kitchen baking and talking to Siri right now. I adore it. I think I may be crossing into ‘Space Cadet doesn’t dye a color I don’t love’ territory.

One brave roly poly has decided that he too is attracted to these socks.


I sat cross-legged on my back patio and snapped a few pictures to capture the joy I’ve felt as I knit these socks. In addition to the color, the stitch definition on these socks is great and they’re going to hold up well, I can feel it.

The stripee socks were a little too small for Rebecca (I should have followed my knitterly instincts), so I started ripping toes to add a wee bit of length. one done. one to go.

It feels amazing….wool so soft it doesn’t feel real. Nothing inspires me to rework the toes of socks like fresh yarn! Well played, Rebecca!
