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!
Looks like a lovely place to have a break. Perhaps the boys should hide a hammock somewhere where dad can't find them!
Have a great weekend away!
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.
And I do love the socks too, honest, I would have commented on just the socks...but the corgi painting...whoa!
ps. A ladder off the dock would be such a great idea for Leo! I wonder if he could figure it out... hmmmmm.
