Thanks for all your fun suggestions for naming my new sock pattern! I took a few of my favorites from among your suggestions and I’ve put together a poll.
In the meantime, I’m chugging along on the second sock.
And I’ve discovered that this sock yarn must be magic. It knits up so very, very quickly, even though I am knitting it at my normal fingering gauge. Go figure.
Double Eyelet Rib Socks
Remember when I told you that my Double Eyelet Rib Socks pattern would be a freebie? Well, it’s now available for download. But not from this site.
It’s posted on The Loopy Ewe’s new Free Patterns Page. Go! Download! Enjoy!
The free patterns page is linked to from Sheri’s blog — check her sidebar under “Pages.”
Several of you requested a peek at what I purchased from The Loopy Ewe last week. Here you go.
From top to bottom, that’s Misty Mountain Farm in “Evergreen,” Chewy Spaghetti fingering in “Succulent” and “Lyrical,” Wollmeise in “Spice Market,” Fiesta Boomerang in “Adirondack,” and Cider Moon fingering in “Giddy.”
Lucy has been a good little nurse to me. She makes a point of sitting on my lap or lying on me whenever possible. Here’s a photo the KOARC took last Saturday.
For some reason, I am the only person she allows to hold her like that — flipped over on her back. As much as she adores her Daddy (and believe me, when I’m not ill, she will always choose to sit on his lap rather than mine when we are both available), she won’t let him flip her over.
But for some reason, I’m extended this privilege. She will lie like that for ages, completely relaxed and purring. And she prefers it if I’m talking baby talk to her while holding her.
But you probably did not need to know that.
