Big Honkin' Post

(picture-wise anyway)


Pattern: #21 Poppy Socks by Cookie A. from Spring/Summer 2009 Knit1 Yarn: The Unique Sheep Verve Color: Poppy Bush Needles: Knitpicks DPN's US 1/2.25 mm Started: June 20, 2009 Completed: June 29, 2009.

Note: This was Empoisonee, somewhere after I finished the toe when I was “moving six stitches” the pattern started to look very, very wrong. In the meantime, Poppy is looking just fine. I can always be happy with a Cookie A. pattern, even if I REALLY, REALLY don't like toe-up construction.

So, doesn't Thor sound like a very testosteriffic name? I decided my young men would go nuts over Thor's contribution to winter-wear:

Also? Thor is the new name of my little companion sheep. This is Whippoorwill Hollow Farm Black Spotted Lambs Wool, handspun Lopi-style. The label says it is "Blended with Thor's brothers to create this beautiful rich and varied, soft grey lambs wool." I purchased this at the Pine Needle up in Cable, Wisconsin last weekend. David is also an artist and I can think of a few people that would love this Corgi painting. Spinners - they also sell fiber.


This is how the boys would like to spend the weekend. If only their dad would let them. We are off again tomorrow afternoon so I will be looking for you all after the Holiday!

Pretty pretty socks! And I really love that natural looking warm gray yarn. I love sweaters in that color.

Looks like a lovely place to have a break. Perhaps the boys should hide a hammock somewhere where dad can't find them!
 
Love the socks!
 
Very funky socks!
 
Your little sheep is adorable! And the socks - gorgeous. Heck, you'll probably be able to wear them at the cabin right away...

Have a great weekend away!
 
Great socks!

Have a great 4th!
 
We have a race to the hammock - there are usually 8 of us vying for position and I rarely win. Maybe this is my year!
 
Really pretty socks and the yarn is as always lovely!
I want to hang out on your hammock can I?
 
That's how I'd like to spend the whole summer.

Thor is cute! The skein should make a nice manly something.

I love the colors of Empoisonee. I mean, Poppy Socks. Great pattern for the yarn.
 
OMG! That corgi painting is so beautiful. Thanks for letting me see it. How did you find it? I just love it.

And I do love the socks too, honest, I would have commented on just the socks...but the corgi painting...whoa!
 
By the way, I have to get me one of those hammocks.

ps. A ladder off the dock would be such a great idea for Leo! I wonder if he could figure it out... hmmmmm.
 
Love the socks, I'll haveto try that pattern.
