I’ve been knitting even less than usual lately, between feeling muy meh and having poked a painful hole in the tip of my right index finger while knitting. A painful hole that simply will not go away, alas.
So this pair of socks (Opal Tutto, colorway 4) took nearly a month to complete.
Apparently May thinks it was worth it.

They match her pretty well!
I hope your finger heals soon. That doesn’t sound like fun at *all*.
Ooo, ow! I once stabbed the palm of my hand with a DPN. And it took forever to heel.
She does blend right in! I love how kitties can stop right in the middle of what they are doing for a quick bath. Heh.
I hope the vitamin D kicks in and you start feeling better. I wear band aids to bed every night to repair finger holes. It takes two nights and the hole is gone. Mayhem is so right. 😉
Oh, look, catmoflague socks.
Poor finger 🙁
but May is quite happy with those crazy zig zaggy socks! I love it when they stop playing for a quick bath 🙂
Love the socks!
Hope you feel better, both the D deficiency and the finger!
Lovely socks. And what a thoughtful kitty to add a “mohair” quality to them.
Sorry to hear about your finger, I hope it heals soon! Nice socks!
Silly girl! X0X0 for the hole in your finger! Love the zebra socks – but maybe not so much as May!
I sometimes poke under the nail, that really hurts, but doesn’t impede progress. Feel better in all ways. Hope the sunny weekend helped. I take 1,000 iu of d every day. I nearly put iud. nope.
I get that same painful hole. I keep a package of band aids in my knitting kit, but I hear a piece of tape might also be effective.
I do like the pooling effect you got on those socks, though. Awesome. 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better soon.
And they’re kitty-colored zig-zaggy socks. How perfect!
Owie! Hope your finger is better soon. And the meh.
My mother’s D test came in at 45! And she’s almost never outside. I checked her vitamins, and between her multis, calcium, and D supplement, she’s been getting 2800 iu per day for years.
hopefully that’s not your nose picking finger
Chris- If I get so much as a blister on my finger, I am howling like, well, a cat.
Cute kitty pics.
Great socks! I’ve gotten that “sock” hole in my finger too – it hurts!
I love those ziggy -zaggy socks! They are so ziggy and so zaggey – I can see why May luvs them!
Reminds me of static on the folks old black and white!
Very cool socks.. I’m having problems with wrist pain when I knit with small needles (or circulars, it seems) so the socks I’m working on are taking forever as well.
Love the crazy ziggy zaggy socks!
Wild socks! Those turned out really well. Sorry to hear about your finger. I hope it heals soon.
Maybe May’s rolling all over the socks was an attempt to shed on them and make them as black as she is. They might be looking too tigerish and not pantherish enough for her.
knitting related injuries are teh sux. I am nursing a sore wrist. Overuse, I suspect. Damn.
That’s funny! When I saw the title of the post, I thought, “Black and white is the new stripey.”
Lo and behold I open the link and there they are: socks and cats sporting the latest colors.
I love the crazy ziggy zaggy socks 🙂
After all the baby knitting, I haven’t been knitting much either and I don’t have a good excuse.
Cool socks! I can see why May likes them. Plus they’re color coordinated.
sorry to hear about the vitamin D deficiency, although I’m sure its a relief to know why you’ve been feeling meh. Hopefully things will get regulated, figure out why deficient, and back to normal life.
I like those socks.
love the socks and I hope your finger is better real soon so you’re no longer the knitting wounded.
hope your finger gets better. the socks are pretty.
May is right – those socks were worth it. Well, worth the time. Not worth the hole in the finger. Heal quickly!
Something tells me May wouldn’t have minded modeling a BIB made out of that yarn!
Ouchy – hope the finger is healing up ok. May looks perfectly comfortable and at home lying on those socks. They are great!!
love the socks!
and especially love the rapturous rolling!
