First thing

of the week, and it’s a cool thing at that:

Hobbit socks!

Quoted from SueJG’s flickr post:

“Top section Based on “Smaugs Treasure Socks” by Debra Barker of Friendly Socks. Self charted Hobbit runes. (“The Hobbit” or there and back again)
Yarns: Elann Sock It To me!
Black, Fresh Cream, Midnight Navy, Vermillion Red, Mint Leaf
2.5mm Addi 30cm circular ”

I’m so happy there are plenty of other dorks out there (so that I know I’m in good company).

Case in point:

No, seriously! A lamp that knits itself! We all need one of these.

Happy Monday!

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
