how cool is this?

5 Comments

I’ve been blogged! No really, go on over and check it out. I’ll wait right here.

This is so cool! Now if only I could show Yannick, but, alas, the socks are a surprise.

I’ve been trying to decide what to do about them, because they appear to be a tad narrow for his feet. I think I will try them on him one night while he sleeps, and if it seems to fit then I’ll make the 2nd one and give him the pair for Christmas/Hanukah. If it doesn’t fit then I’ll finish the first one and give it to him to keep in his bowling bag for good luck.

Last night was a very informative meeting of the Montreal Knitting Guild. We had speakers in from 10 Milles Villages, a Fair Trade store. It was really cool learning about Peru and the alpacas, and especially touching many of the knitted items they brought in for show-and-tell. Definately a place I plan to check out at the next gift-giving holiday!

Tonight I’ll be at the Montreal Knits to-do on Monkland. The dinosaur is getting a bit unweildly to carry around (one arm left then just seaming and stuffing) so I brought with some yarn and the needles to make a pair of Froggy Socks and Hat that are similar to the Just Ducky ones I posted two days ago. They work up fast so I’m predicting I’ll have at least one completed sock by the end of the meeting.

  3. Thank goodness the Harlot blogged you!

    Your bowling socks are awesome. You HAVE to say where you got the pattern. Of course, that would mean that I’d HAVE to knit them for me and my DH. But life isn’t all hearts and flowers! LOL!

I am an avid sock-knitter, and also on a bowling league and they would be a perfect gift for my teammates for Christmas! Congrats on the tiny addition on the way! I’m so glad I found your blog, you are very talented 🙂
