This year, spring has poked its warm little head out and retreated a few times already, leaving a long dull winter in its wake. I finally broke down, mentally stomped my feet like a toddler, and decided to try to entice spring to hang around by knitting with some of the brightest colours I had in my stash - my last two balls of Felici sock yarn, in the Fizz colourway. It's purely a coincidence that it feeds into my current stockingette sock obsession.
These ones were the same old simple design I always knit, with an afterthought heel, but I decided to change things up and do a star heel for this pair. I'm really tickled that I did, since one of the heels sort of reminds me of a Jayne hat.
My obsession with striped socks continues, but now I have to resort to making my own stripes. It's just a different kind of fun to come up with the colour combinations. The next pair are a real doozy.
Living life somewhere in the grey area between Liz Lemon and Nancy Botwin. I live with my beloved Heterosexual Life Mate (HLM), no kids, two beautiful feline ladies, and what I can only assume are self-replenishing stacks of fabric and yarn.
