Knitting Without Dog Hair Is Not an Option

Hi there - My name is Claudia. I live with my hubby and our two furry kids in Georgia, USA. Originally I am from Germany - southern belle from Bavaria replanted to the Southern US. I am very addicted to knitting - 4-5 projects going at the same time... What can I say...

Goldilocks Socks

I have a friend who I have knitted a pair of socks for. And my friend has a cat who peed on her socks.

So, because my friend is a dear friend, I offered to
a) try to rescue the socks and wash them for her and
b) knit her a new pair of socks.

On Saturday, I got the sock yarn from her and Sunday morning I sat down to create a pattern for her socks. After consulting my treasured Barbara Walker books, I came up with a cool pattern for the socks. It's a toe up sock with short rows at the toe and the heel. And since it's a pattern for a dear friend and she asked if I could make a cable sock, I found a pattern with XOXOX.

This is what I have accomplished so far:

Goldilocks Socks

When we showed the socks to her hubby, he just rolled his eyes and said that that is sooooo girly. With the Xs and Os. Ha-ha-ha... I like to be girly every once in a while.

If you bear with me and give me a little bit of time - probably until after Thanksgiving - I'll publish the pattern here. I am also working on the pattern for the fingerless mittens and the man's hat with cables. STAND BY...

Sorry to make you wait but I just have a ton of things going on right now and I would love to have a couple of clones to get everything done.... HELP... YELP... ;-)

How nice the socks match your beer! Just stumbled across your blog, nice work and nice title. Sounds like my house. I don't think cooking is possible without dog hair either.
