Congrats to Mia Watts, who won the copy of Marrick’s Promise (Thrown to the Lions, Book 2) by Kim Dare!
Back in, um, February, I started a pair of socks for my SIL’s birthday in early March. *hopes no one notices what date it is now* Those socks are now complete!
“Socks on the floor! Yay!!!!” -Mayhem
“Is there a problem?” -Mayhem
Apparently you’ll just have to imagine what the rest of the socks look like…
“Socks! I love socks! Even if they aren’t stripey.” -Mayhem
I even started knitting a new pair of socks for myself.
“Stripey! Hurry up, Mom.” -Mayhem
Hopefully all the knitters were near padded surfaces when they collapsed from the shock of seeing knitting on the blog. 😉

LOL! All I know is that it’s a bit warm in summer for socks like that. 😉 Or were they meant for a certain friend from Down Under? 😀
I <3 the new striped ones. You think they will be ready before winter starts? *innocent smile*

I was going to say that Mayhem is a camera hog, but I think she just has a sock fetish.

*thuds to the floor*
Are those KNITTED socks?? I’m shocked and amazed! They look great.. I absolutely love the colored stripes on the new pair.. going to have to look up that yarn!
(BTW.. I’m totally joking with you- I don’t even want to think about how ‘old’ the pair of socks in my knitting bag are right now or when the last time I picked them up was)
*laughing so hard almost chokes*
YAH for finishing your SIL’s socks. They look gorgeous! Well, what I can see of them. It’s like your cats know…hide the socks so they can’t be removed 🙂
And the stripey socks look gorgeous!

Awwww, it’s a sockfest 😀
Oooo, nice! Both of them! And those stripes line up nicely.
I’m surprised Mayhem remembers what those things on the floor being photographed are… *ducking*
A recent post from Brigitte..What A Shame
I had rather a large shock and then I remembered, Chris does knit! You should knit more so that Mayhem can show off your knitting in such a fashionable way!
A recent post from margene..Ten on Tuesday kicking and screaming
I’m with Mayhem! Yay, socks!
haha! She is such a sweety!
Lovely socks (what I can see of them.):-) Margene’s right, you should knit more so Mayhem can show of your FO’s in the way only she can do!
A recent post from Julie..Ten on Tuesday
Wow, Mayhem LURVES those socks big time. They is lovely. Stripey socks are fun too.
A recent post from Tam..Happy Canada Day-
Yay, socks! And YAY furry soft Mayhem belly!
i was sitting down. The socks look great!
A recent post from ikisti..Missing
Yeah knitting! I had almost forgotten that you did that too.
A recent post from Seanna Lea..Tuesday-
Yay, congrats on finishing SIL’s socks. Very pretty and they make Mayhem so happy. Like the stripey ones, too.

Where in the world did you find catnip yarn?
My poor sister’s cat has been cut-off from catnip, it was making him have potty problems. Of course he was getting fresh catnip 4 or 5 times a day!
I’m so glad I had an early warning. But still, one pair done and another pair started? Awesome.
A recent post from Cheryl S…Who Knew
Since I can’t knit worth a frick, I bow down to you. My grandma tried several times to teach me, but I think she finally gave me up as a lost cause.
LOL You make me want to take up knitting Chris! The socks for your SIL are so beautiful and the new ones are too..
You enjoy May… 😉

Beautiful blue socks! May certainly is delighted. Love the new stripes! We’ll have to see if you feel the need to match the second sock to the first.

Mayhem is such a pretty cat, so photogenic!

Yay socks! I have finished socks on my blog, too! (But you already commented that on my post… hmm.)
And no padded surfaces were needed here this morning. I already collapsed yesterday when I saw the Rav update. 😉

What is this knitting thing you speak of?
Those came out very nice (of what I could see). I think you need to make Mayhem a pair of stripey socks for her……At least a sock shaped blanket!
A recent post from Lynn..Monday Meme
Wowee – you finished a pair of socks. No wonder May is excited.
A recent post from Mary Lou..Girls in their Summer Dresses
Beautiful! Both the socks and May 🙂
I actually just finished one sock that I started in February too, so you’re doing better than I am! They’re just for me though, so no deadlines. Maybe the other one won’t take as long though…

Yay socks! Yay Mayhem!

Someone is oh, so happy! I love how a little bit of pink tongue is sticking out. Oh and the socks are a wonderful color of blue – my favorite.
A recent post from Karen B…Progress is good
I could make a joke about not knowing that you knit but that might be construed as a pot calling a kettle black. Or purple as the case might be. 😉
A recent post from trek..WWW – Now with more Thursday
I was safely reading from bed, so no worries from here 🙂 I love the stripes!
A recent post from Kristi aka FiberFool..My Creative Process- Inspiration in Surroundings
Yay!!! *claps* I bet the SIL will love them. I know I would, especially since they are blue. 🙂
Oooh comfy socks! Verra pretty.
I think you’re going to have to fight Mayhem for them. *grin*
A recent post from Anna Shah Hoque..Happy Canada Day-
Yay for knitting! The socks make May so happy – you should make more of them! 😉
A recent post from janna..More crochet-
*Thud* OMG, knitting! 😉 Poor May has been deprived.
Even more amazing, I have a FO this week too. The earth just might collapse into a black hole.

Looks like someone’s been missing handknit socks! They look great.

Okay… and you gave me crap about my daughter’s cat, making sweet lurve to my sockyarn! That cat is darn near smoking a cigarette and getting ready to raid the fridge… you’re lucky those socks aren’t pregnant! (Or the cat… you know… I’m not really sure the socks are masculine, feminine or gender neutral…)
And I’ve actually used that exact color before to make fingerless mitts w/a ruffle. Purty. So purty. Someone has nice taste:-)
Knitting! OMG! Just as long as you don’t go off the deep end and start knitting socks for the cats…they’d probably like those as much as they like bibs.

I had forgotten about those socks..
Good thing I didn’t put in an order.. 2015 looks likes the earliest date for me..
Is Mayhem chewing on the knitting needles?.
I hit my head on the way down – I need to pad my desk when I read about your actual knitting these days….

I still have a couple of half-socks from last fall. (Okay, I’ve knit a couple of shawls since then, but no full socks.)
