Why would she name them “donnie socks”?
If you are over 40 – it should be pretty easy. Purple socks….remind you of a certain family that’s a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll?
Yeah, kinda silly but I got only about 10 rounds into this first one and realized that I was making Donnie Osmond purple socks. I don’t think I’ve owned purple socks since the 70’s. It made me giggle.
Anyhoo…while I am still doing the whole sock-love thing, I am also getting started on the Penny Arcade Jacket free pattern from Caron. I’ve loved the arcade stitch since my first yarnbombing when I tried new stuff just for the hell of it and that one ended up being my favorite. I have been hoping to find a way to use it in a functional item ever since. (I found the pattern through Pinterest ~ sooooo lovin’ the Pinterest ~ I could get sidetracked about every 3 seconds over there. I think I have added 15 to 20 additional projects to my list for this winter.) While I am not cranking out original patterns right now, I am truly enjoying my WiPs. Ever since the craft show it’s been all about the enjoyment ~ no pressure. And of course, it’s been about the making for ME and nobody else! My turn again 🙂
My companion for the evening was too cute so I had to snap a shot.
Thanks for stopping by!
PS ~ I am making my jacket in white. If you are trying it out too, what color will you be using?
