Knitting Mojo

I've got it back! I found my monkey socks that I started in June and misplaced. I've also finished one of the Broad Ripple socks. Fun pattern and used some bright yarn. Will post picture tonight after it cools down (supposed to get up to 97 today in Indy). Have the 2nd sock started as well. Broad Ripple was designed by a guy who attended the Broad Ripple Art Fair here in Indy. David Letterman is an alumna of Broad Ripple High School here in Indy, so these flashy socks had to be made!!! Stay cool everyone!

I never posted my finished first glove--still haven't finished the 2nd one, but here it is. I guess I've got one-glove-itis as well! I'll get cracking on the 2nd one after the Summer of Socks is over!

I updated this blog yesterday, but it hasn't shown up this morning. Will have to figure out what happened when I get home. I want y'all to see the finished regia striped stocks.

Now it's showing up. D'oh!!! Oh well, at least it's not lost in cyberspace!

Another pair completed and I've been Simpsonized

I finished the green stripes. I know, I'm not anal, so my stripes don't match up and I like them that way. My first pair was easily matched up, but I did this pair for fun. I had to slow up a bit while I finished the new HP. Then I had to Simpsonize myself. Not quite Aunt Selma, but close. Have stayed with my mom all this last week. She is doing much better--she stayed by herself while I worked. She's definitely making lots of progress. She wants to live in her house by herself, so she's made some giant steps since her stroke the end of May. She came home from the rehabilitation center on 7/19, so she's doing well.

To Simpsonize yourself, go to Make sure you have a good head shot of yourself (not that it really will look like you), but it only works with good head shots.
