Taking a cue from Crazy Aunt Purl, I am using my knitting these days to cope with a breakup. Yup. Mr. Bee and I are splitting up after 18 years. Shocked and awed? Yeah, me too. And devastated... etc. etc. etc. So as soon as I could get out of the fetal position and stop crying long enough to see the needles, I started to knit socks like a woman possessed. I must be doing better 'cause for a while there I couldn't do any knitting. I was kind of walking comatose but now I'm back in the swing of things.
This first pair is knit from "Opal" that I got at the 'Sow's Ear's 25% off anything with purple in it' a while back. Talk about my kinda sale!
And this is the first sock from some Socketta (that stuff made with chitin, the antibacterial protein from seafood shells) I got at the same sale.
You have to look close but there is purple in there. My lighting isn't so great tonight.
Sock #2 gets cast on tonight whilst I spend the evening with the puppies and Dr. Who.
Tomorrow is Last Saturday knitting which I'm really looking forward to. I couldn't make the last one and really miss my peeps over at Victor Allan's. Anyway, looks like I'm back in the saddle with the blog thing. Thanks for your patience and all of your well wishes! You guys rock!
