Random wtf things that have made me go hmmmm lately or You too can crawl inside FKDeb's head :)
1a - Does Beyonce looking like she's starring in a porn flick make YOU want digital TV?
1b - Can Beyonce BE in any more endorsements?
guilty pleasure shame... I LOVE the Spice Girls and I'm so glad they're back. I even endured that vapid Victoria's Secret Special just to see them. Now that's love, baybee!! Look at how cool they look:
So what random wtf thing makes you go hmm these days??
Onto a bit of the knit....
Thank you all for the rousing response to the Caramel Apple Twisted Flower Socks. Your compliments really made my week! Y'all should knit a pair, they are really fun and I miss them!
The Caramel Apples are a hard act to follow but...cute in their own right, I give you my latest pair...
These are my penultimate pair of gift socks for this year...aren't they a breath of spring to come?
Marigold Socks by Pamela Wynne
Opal Petticoat #1290
Toe-up, Magic Loop 32" circ, US#1 (2.25)
Mods: The socks are written for a wrapped short row toe and heel. I switched to the Turkish cast-on for the toe and a yo short row heel. I also eliminated the ribbed cuff and just did a 5 row garter stitch edge which I feel blends in well with the look of the sock.
This was a very easy and very fun knit. The pattern is impeccable and it produces a really good looking sock. The lace is way simple yet attractive and as I mentioned before, this would be a perfect first toe-up sock adventure for you toe-up virgins out there!
Pumpkin wants to wish everyone a Happy Chanukah and a week that's full of latkes and dreidels (and knitting of course!)
