My socks are progressing. I am getting lots of bobble practice, and I am losing my fear of them. Bobbles are actually fun. Every once in awhile I get messed up on one, and it all gets to be a tangled tight mess, but I just release the yarn and start it again.
These Movie Socks have lots of popcorn!
I am not sure though if my needles are going to survive this. Some of them are starting to look like the curved mouth on a smiley face:
Maybe since they are bamboo they are working as they should with some bend and give. (lots of bend and give!) I shouldn’t say this but so far I have not snapped one of these bamboo needles. *knock knock knock on wood*.
I have one more 16 row repeat on the leg of the first sock, and then I will do the leg on the second.
As I write this, Davey and Daddy are dancing to “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”. Still Davey’s favorite song. It even resulted in some “ear dancing” again.
Finally, I had to share this picture. I help with the Humane Society in Clarksville TN, and they also do some work with Animal Control. Sammy (among many others) needs a home. I have left this picture up on my computer for days. I love him, and it makes me smile every time I pull it up. Here’s hoping he gets a great home.
Good thing I’m so far away. I’m sure Sammy will find a great home, but if I were closer… really don’t need another pet right now, but that dog is really adorable.
Is this post all about adorableness? Love Davey’s ear dancing. And LOVE those socks! That pattern is really gorgeous.
knock on bamboo you mean.
Bobbles lookin’ good!
can you stuff him in an envelope and send him to jersey?
I confess I used good, strong metal needles when I knitted the original socks. 🙂 Your progress so far is looking fantastic. Hope you’ve conquered your bobble phobia now!
