Katie kindly offered to model it for me. When she started to pose, though, I started to worry. My kids are pretty used to me sticking a camera in their face, but I thought I had them trained to ignore me. Katie the Diva is showing her true colours here.

And I doubt I will actually call it George. It seems more feminine to me. Besides, I don't tend to name my stuff. The van is still just called "the van" and the car is still just called "the car." I must have Bugs Bunny on my mind, though, since that line has been going through my head since the wheel arrived.

Waaaay back in November I cursed, swore and loudly proclaimed that I would NEVER knit with Noro Kureyon again. When the socks were finally finished I heaved a great sigh of relief and tried to put the experience behind me.
Then I started wearing them. Everytime I looked down and saw them peaking out from my jeans it gave me a little thrill. They were just so cool! I even forgave the orange.
Somehow I just know that I am going to regret this purchase. But the colours were calling to me.
Meanwhile, I have another pair of socks off the needles. These are Online Supersocke Cotton, colourway 946. These are the first pair of socks that I have made using a cotton blend.
The bitterly cold weather that we have had since December is still not letting up very much. It has been slightly warmer, but I am really ready to get a break from it. Between the frigid temps and the short days it is getting to be a bit much. The kids left for school about 8:40 this morning and as I went back into my office and looked out the window the lightening sky it was tinged with lovely shades of blue and pink. It made a nice change from grey, slate and sludge coloured.
