For my knitting date yesterday, I packed three projects, because of course I would need that many for maybe six-ish hours of knitting, right? I had a sock in progress, sock yarn to cast on, and a garter stitch shawl WIP. I bet you knitters out there can guess how many I worked on. Yep, the socks in progress and that’s it. And it wasn’t even six-ish hours of knitting because a couple of those hours were spent hiking! Still, Sonny & Tubbs are looking pretty good.
And the stripes are even matching up, how about that?? I don’t get that very often, and I don’t really care, but when it does happen without much effort on my part, I find it rather magical. I also find new yarn magical, especially new birthday yarn that is purple and pink and named after a fantastic 80s song!
This is Tainted Love from Rock and String Creations and it might have to be my next pair of socks, as soon as I’m done with Tubbs up there. I’m pretty lucky to have good friends in my life!
Sonny and Tubbs 😂. They look great!
I love your Sonny and Tubbs socks, even though they didn’t wear socks. https://www.reddit.com/r/OldSchoolCool/comments/8fdqmq/crockett_and_tubbs_miami_vice_1980s/
Also I can’t believe that you didn’t watch the show. I had so much fun with you yesterday. Thank you for being so great.
Okay but maybe Tubbs did sometimes? I mean, look at his shoes. You can’t see a naked foot in there! And thank you too– do you know, the effects of that day lasted until this morning! I’ve been pretty chill & calm all week! So clearly it needs to be a regular thing.
I completely agree.
Your Sonny and Tubbs socks look great, and love your new yarn!
That would make some fabulous socks. But all your socks seem to turn out fabulous!
Haha! Nope, I’ve had some definitely turn out less than fabulous. I just don’t highlight those!
Wow tainted love is such a YOU colorway!!
I love both these yarns! I also love when socks match up, though I have been known to spend lots of extra time making sure they match as perfectly as I can…
Haha, my patience does not extend that far!
😀 Some yarns make it easier, and if I leave a long enough tail I can read the color pattern. But yeah… sometimes it’s a bit much. 😉
