2+1=6? Say what

(Now that I’ve gifted the secret knitting, I can tell ya’ll what I’ve been up to!) I know my math skills are atrocious but stick with me here. I started off with 2 skeins of Socks that Rock Medium weight in Boysenberry purchased at Maryland Sheep and Wool 2006 and 1 skein of Rhodonite purchased at Rhinebeck 2006. Some of these socks have never been blogged about. (sneaky, sneaky!)

notes: Mom loves her new socks, just in time for Summer!! MandaJ saw me knitting them and said they look like velvet. I agree, they do.

So, even though I can’t do math in my head with out making a face or using a calculater 2+1 does = 6

  1. Oh I don’t understand how you find time and energy for all that. Wonderful socks and a lovely picture of all your happy feet.

    Have a great weekend 🙂

  2. What a lucky family to have you to knit socks for them. I wish I loved to knit socks that much. But with a family where everyone has large feet, I lose motivation pretty quickly. The family feet picture is too cute. And your math is perfect! 🙂

  3. Yup! I do love my socks. If only the temp. would drop below 80 (well probably 70 or 60 would be better) I’ll be able to wear them without having a hot flash! ha ha ha
    It was so much fun seeing everyone this last weekend. Dinner at Quaker Steak and Lube was a lot of fun too!
    Love ya, Mom

  4. love the last picture with all the socks! So cute! And how productive and cost effective of you. I wish I used up my sock yarn better. I just keep it for darning and think “Maybe I’ll make some baby socks” every so often.
