Congrats to Faren, who won the copy of The Guardian by Mary Calmes!
Many thanks to JessaLu – I won a gorgeous skein of sock yarn in her blogiversary contest! And thank you, Nicole, as it looks like your referral led to this. 🙂
So apparently these were not quite the Eternal Socks of Eternity. 🙂

Oooo! No sparklies or pink stripes, but I do really like them! Move over, Mayhem.

What?! No sparklies or feathers in the socks? Sheesh!
Well, at least there are stipes.
.-= JulieÂ´s last blog ..Friday with Clover =-.
Lovely socks. Glad they have the kitty seal of approval.
I know you don’t believe it, but there is such a thing as too many sparklies and feathers, May.

I love your socks. Esau Marie is my photostylist. She sucks at it.
.-= CindyCindyÂ´s last blog ..I survived it =-.
Sparkles and feathers aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. You’re beautiful without, May.
.-= margeneÂ´s last blog ..Tasty Tuesday =-.
Great socks! Glad you got at least one full picture of them before Mayhem settled down on them 🙂
.-= AlisonÂ´s last blog ..Actual finished object =-.
Yay, socks! They’re probably better without feathers.
.-= naomiÂ´s last blog ..eye candy tuesday =-.
Ah, the sleek form, the grace, such a shiney black coat… Oh, wait a minute. We’re supposed to be admiring the socks. Beep, Mayhem!
Kitty fur, the final touch!
.-= MirandaÂ´s last blog ..REVIEW: My One =-.
Those are very nice stripey kitty beds.
Chris- it is a valid question, why can’t there be sparklies, and feathers and pink and oh, just everything?
The world would be a better place. 😉

Thanks for the book, Chris and Mary! Great socks, Chris, glad you got your knitting mojo back. Cat hair isn’t just the final touch though, it’s the first touch and a lot of touches in between!

good thing I was sitting down 😉

Ohhhh I like the socks!!! I can barely sew a button or do a few stitches… So bowing down to you!!!!
And yea… why no feathers or sparklies… a Princess needs those things Mom!!!
Hope you are having a great day!
The socks! They are finished! And beautiful! But poor, poor Mayhem. She’s so put upon. *Mope*
That is so cool you made your own socks! AND they get the Mayhem seal of approval.
.-= PattiÂ´s last blog ..Build Your Own Book Boyfriend =-.
Very nice! And I didn’t even die of shock at actual knitting content!
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..mr. nose sniffs again! =-.
Time to start a sparkly pink (with boa trim) pair for Mayhem!
.-= jannaÂ´s last blog ..The Last Christmas Gift! =-.
Hooray for new socks and warm feet!
.-= JodiÂ´s last blog ..Olympic progress =-.
those are socks
.-= furiousballÂ´s last blog ..hit the ice! =-.
At least May picks something cozy to sit on. My cat has been sitting on our tax papers. If we try to lean the papers and envelopes up against the filing cabinet, she paws at them until they’re flat on the floor and sits on them.
.-= Cheryl S.Â´s last blog ..Two More Days, Two More Pieces =-.
Awesome socks. May is so curious!
I love the colors of those socks! One day, could you do a post with all of your handknit socks (the ones you have kept for yourself) arrayed and described? (Sort of like the post about your black shoes.) I think it would be very interesting!
.-= MarshaÂ´s last blog ..Busy =-.
No feathers? *mope* (Bother. Bronwyn beat me to it.)
And you’re welcome! Though it was your links that sent me there in the first place, so I guess it’s your own fault. :p
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..Goals, Postponed =-.
Love the socks! May seems unnecessarily glum. She belongs in a Russian novel with that attitude. And feather quills in socks would not be comfy.

So not missing my parents cats at the moment, it’s almost March and mum said they had gone insane!
.-= blodeueddÂ´s last blog ..Birthday party + contest =-.
I love those socks – do you take orders or do I have to battle May to get a pair….
Where may I ask is the master of the house – is he catching up on his beauty sleep… or is he hiding from the paparatizze…
.-= Erotic HorizonÂ´s last blog ..What Are You Reading on Mondays â€“ A Mix Bag This Week =-.
So eternity has arrived?
.-= kmkatÂ´s last blog ..Linkety, fortune cookies, and knitting. =-.
I won’t tell her that there are actual bed patterns freely available online & some wicked pink sparkly yarn options.
OMG your cat reminds me so much of my Kiko. Perhaps you should make some rainbow kitty bootie for mayhem?
.-= katiebabsÂ´s last blog ..Something About You Advanced Book Review *Julie James* =-.
I love your socks… They are the best. Can I have a pair May?
.-= LeaÂ´s last blog .."Hold On Tight", by Stephanie Tyler – Review and Surprise Giveaway =-.
That thar kitteh has excellent taste in socks! They just need a dusting of black fur, is all.
.-= Carolyn CraneÂ´s last blog ..Making with the freaky freak on new releases and a contest =-.
Verra colorful. And I like the wooden thingies that have the white cats on it 🙂

What?! You finished something?! I feel all lightheaded…*thunk*
They look awesome! Are they warm? ;o)
.-= JessaLuÂ´s last blog ..Ten on Tuesdayâ€¦ =-.
Wow, it’s Eternity already? I could swear it was barely noon. 😉
Socks! A pair! Knit! Gorgeous stripiness. May has a point….pink sparklies and feathers do make things better…….but would they go with your shoes?
.-= Carrie KÂ´s last blog ..January 11, 1937 – November 28th, 2009 =-.
Why do you always win? (Imagine that in a very whiny tone of voice!) Nice socks, I think, if I could see them!
.-= Mary LouÂ´s last blog ..Lucky Me =-.
Love the socks!
I love Mayhem. (And the socks are pretty too. Socks are my favorite things to knit.)
Nice socks! Maybe I’ll finish my socks some day.
I think your next pair of socks should be pink with sparkles and feathers. 😉
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Sewing! =-.
They are done! Cute socks!
Poor Mayhem…maybe the next set will be pink, sparkly and big enough to lay on. 😉
.-= Donna-FantasyDreamerÂ´s last blog ..New Releases: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance for the week of February 23, 2010 =-.
At least that kitty distracts from the fact that the stripes don’t match on your socks… *hides eyes*
.-= MouseÂ´s last blog ..Blogus Neglectus =-.
Mayhem is GORGEOUS! What a beautiful coat! He reminds me of my previous cat – Tyrant. Yes, I named him that and it so suited 🙂
Oh, and great socks. I’m VERY impressed!
.-= oranniaÂ´s last blog ..Breaking Up Is Hard To Do =-.
You made fraternals!
I need to sit down.
Very nice and rainbow-y!
