In which Mayhem discovers stripey socks on the floor

I finished knitting these socks a bit after midnight on December 22. I knew I’d be mailing them over my lunch break that day, so I took pictures as soon as they were finished. When I set the socks on the floor, Mayhem woke from a deep sleep and came over to see what was up.

“Hey!! Stripey socks!!” -Mayhem

“Yup, definitely stripey socks. I approve of their bright pinky purpleness!” -Mayhem

“Oh, nice texture, too.” -Mayhem

“Were you trying to take pictures of stripey socks without my assistance?! For shame, Mom, for shame.” -Mayhem

“Ok, carry on, then.” -Mayhem

The yarn is Grignasco Strong Print, colorway 013, and the pattern is a basic blueberry waffle.

  1. I feared to read this post in case May’s sharp claws and teeth had wreaked havoc on the stripey socks. Whew! Apparently you have a friend who like purple stripey-ness as much as you do. Great socks!

  2. I think I’m going to have to sue you. I just fell out ofmy chair and onto the floor over the shock of knitting pictures. I may demand as full settlement the cats.

    p.s. I really like the socks, the recipient very lucky!

  3. and may I say that this is proof of why all the animals in my house went INSANE sniffing my feet when I put those socks on. 🙂

  4. I see you are still (to me) the sock queen. I bow before your skill and confess I may never knit another sock…cuz you know the rules are you should have *two* when done. I’m not good at *two* of anything. But I am knitting….again…finally. What’s up with all the gay romances, I must have seriously missed something… LOL 🙂

  5. WOW!! Very impressed. I went through a phase of knitting scarfs…but never socks.

    May….really like socks, doesn’t she? Good to get the May stamp of approval 🙂 It’s like a quality stamp 🙂

  6. Gorgeous socks, how could anyone possibly be expected to not want to roll around on them?! Especially someone who has already demonstrated a sock fetish. 😉

  7. I feel slighted not to have received such a gift as this! Wondered – do you keep that pristine-looking piece of carpet specifically for photos – otherwise – where are the cat hairs?!!
