Everyone's A Critic


Anubis D Cat inspects my work on the Wyoming Spring Socks. His whole stance suggests disdain, from the dyeing to the design to the knitting. Despite his withering disapproval, I forged ahead and finished the socks. They are a gift, and will soon be in New Zealand with Elaine, who gets to vacation there for three weeks. The other reason the socks are green? I'm jealous. I want to go to New Zealand with them. :(



Yes, they look huge, but they aren't really, they're just on sock blockers, stretching out after a final wash. Interesting striping, I'm never sure how some of the dye jobs will look on a finished product, the color variations here are much more subtle than the picture shows. 3 shades of green, and two of brown. Of course, everything looks good in a skein.

I've dyed my colorways of Wyoming Spring, Summer, Autumn, and all I have left to do is a Winter colorway. Could turn out slush gray, scoria red, and traffic cone orange at this rate...

If I had to live with two "Golden Idol" Corgis who get more PR than Barack Obama....I'd look that way too.

Nice socks. That's definitely a spring green.

Gabriele, would you like to trade brothers for a while?? *g*

You sure? Mine comes with a silly wife, I don't think you want that. :)

Constance said...

No, you're right about that. Mine comes with a BMW motorcycle and enough attitude to pilot a small aircraft. Probably not fair to inflict him on the unsuspecting. I think he also consorts with gnomes...

"Consorts with Gnomes"?!?!?

Now that's a little harsh!

I have been accused of consorting with sheep.........

Constance said...

But never convicted, because the sheep remain curiously quiet....

That's not what the sheep told me. They baa'd something about a payoff...
