is it wrong to wish your team’s colors were L.I.M.E.
instead of, hmmm, navy & orange??

Then it would be as easy as shooting ducks in a barrel – I’d already have one sock done and would not be tempted by this – Laura K writes: “By the way, have you seen the Bears colorway by Lorna’s Laces? It’s a fun self-striping blue orange combo–I saw it at Arcadia last week.”

How cool is knitting a sock during the game? Well, maybe not as cool as Jodee who wrote: “I knit an orange and blue hat during the game to keep me from biting my nails!!”

I will have to call. Becasue. I. Have. NO. Willpower. And I am not afraid of being the fan who’s a little bit of a wan**er if that’s what it takes to get a championship trophy! If you recall, something really good happened the night I was knitting a black’n’white sock awhile back…


Meanwhile, Sock #1 of 56 St 56 Row Pair is done, washed and being admired. I have a chair across from the chair I usually sit’n’knit and it is the Gallery Chair. I find I’ve been draping new FOs over it when they’re done so I can admire them for a spell before I put them in the sweater cupboard. (Yes, one perfect little reason to slack off housework.)

This pattern is just so easy and fun – but it disappeared from the web awhile back. Its author, the wonderful Nancy T McGLynn, gave me permission to publish it again online here on Chic Knits for you to enjoy…

(good for any medium weight sock yarn that knits to a gauge of 7 sts / 10 rows per 1″ – makes a Women’s Size M sock)
