Apre-Bellum Socks

The war may be over for me, but I'm still kicking when it comes to socks.

Here's the instrument of my undoing-- Grape Kool-Aid Socks of Doom knitted by my assassin, Pollyanna. They smell good and grapey!So now that I'm a casualty of Sock Wars, I'm focusing on the Black Bunny Hopalong and on Christmas knitting.

Here's Falling Leaves in Black Bunny yarn color "Kiss." That's one of my dogs, Georgia, supervising the photography.

That wasn't Georgia's first "participation" in the process. Here she is, shamelessly rolling on the socks in progress. The yarn is near her butt. Lovely.
Here she is feeling shame for what she did.

And here is a detail of the finished sock. I love how the pattern looks. Not sure I'm a toe-up gal, but I'd make them again.

And here is the current project, Pomatomus in Black Bunny color "Lagoon." Pomatomus is fish-inspired, according to pattern creator Cookie, so I'm going for a whole aquatic thing. Perfect Christmas gift for mom before she heads to the Keys! I love this pattern and would absolutely knit these again. I used the tubular cast on and it made all the difference in the cuff-- much more forgiving. Plus it looks very clean. The photos don't do the yarn color justice.

More to come! I've been a knittin' fool these past few weeks. Sock Wars death didn't slow me down at all!
