10 March 2006

This week I am taking a group of 15 students down to Mississippi to do some home repair for victims of Hurricane Katrina. This means that since the end of the Knitting Olympics and my crazy two week so of travel I have done almot nothing but catch up on work and plan for this trip. Knitting has been almost completely absent from life. *pout*

Ahhh, but all is not lost, I have 40 hours on a bus in which to make socks, socks and more socks. (Who said anything about needing to knit an afghan for my sister, or spending time bonding with Brevard S. Childs and Joseph Blenkinsopp over Isaiah? Not I, not I...)

In the interim I give you these photographs of other glorious socks past. Ahhh, wooly socks how I love thee!

My Siamese "Maggie" inspecting my favorite socks. Cherry Tree Hill in the Northern Lights colorway. (Side note: This yarn bleeds like CRAZY. After 3 washes they still turn my sink a dark purple...)

Tan Jawool socks made as a Christmas present for my father in law - they look much more pink than they actually are. Darn camera! The Gentleman's Plain Sock pattern from Nancy Bush's "Knitting Vintage Socks". I really, really like this pattern. In fact I'm using some awesome purple/yellow fiberspates to make myself a pair.

Finally, my brother's frighteningly hairy leg modeling a pair of the "Whitby" socks I made for him as a christmas present. This pattern is from "Knitting on the Road" also by Nancy Bush. I'm a fan, both of the socks and Nancy Bush.
