Someday I’ll get back to real blogging about knitting, but for now here’s a picture of Anne Hanson’s Longjohn socks pattern, made in the fabulous Ellyn Cooper’s Yarn Sonnets (brand name), Zohar’s Socks (yarn name), in Old Orchid (colorway). Whew, that’s a mouthful. Loving the lack of pooling in a colorful, hand dyed yarn… When I finish I’ll see if a vinegar bath will mitigate the bleeding that other Ravelers have complained about.
The Alamo Drafthouse creates their own pre-show reels, and we just got to see Elton John’s performance of Crocodile Rock on The Muppet Show. My very favorite! I’m just barely old enough to remember Kermit rushing onstage afterwards, flailing his hands at the muppet crocodiles, yelling “Don’t eat the guest star at the beginning of the show!”. Good times. And I have bacon and cheddar scones coming, so I’d better post this to get a few rows of knitting done before the show.
