A number of you expressed interest/surprise in the comments that I am able to knit while (ahem) in an altered state of consciousness.

I’ve got ideas for several more sock designs, too. Some of them I’ve charted and they are waiting in the wings. Some are floundering around in my fevered brain,
And at some point, all these sock patterns will be available — some as freebies, some to buy.
Speaking of freebies, the Cabletini Sock pattern is now available. Go to The Loopy Ewe Free Pattern Page and check it out. Woo!
