Hey, did you ever wonder why this blog is called Two Sock Knitters? It's because I've been known to knit from time to time.
I've been working on a knitted soaker for Jamie.
Kind of looks like a big blurb, doesn't it? As long as it works, I'm happy. It's not quite done yet (I have to knit the legs).
I also want to start this from Dale of Norway:
Actually, I did start it, but haven't gotten past the cast on yet. I had a bit of trouble substituting discontinued colors, though the fine folks at Knitche (our local yarn store) helped me out quite a bit in matching close colors. One clerk even dipped into her personal stash when she recognized that I needed a discontinued Forest Green. She had a skein kicking around her house that she gave me!
Angus seems to have fallen in love with the little one. By all accounts he's tickled to death that we've produced a cat-sized human. We caught him napping next to Jamie this morning with his nose tucked under Jamie's arm.
Or maybe it's Jamie that's taken with Angus? Hard to say.
