That is one fine-looking sock--great pattern and well-fitting! I'm looking forward to seeing how the shawl design evolves.

Jess said...

Lovely, all of it! I'm looking forward to seeing how the shawl design goes.

What's on your spinning wheel there?

Anonymous said...

Nice singles there, Sally.

Lisa said...

I love the sock! When your feeling less onomatopoeic (is that a word???), would you please let us know if it's your pattern or where we can find it? I can't wait to see the shawl either!

Nice socks, Sally.

*slaps ass*

Anne said...

I can't even comment on this one without getting in trouble.

Opal said...

Yeehaw!

Isela: Purling Sprite said...

I'll call ya Sally if ya tell me where to get that great looking pattern.

Heidi said...

That's a fine lookin' sock ya got there! Can I ask what book it is your reading? The idea of translating the wierd and wonderful (knitting) stuff in my head into actual knitting is somewhat intoxicating...

Nice sock!!!!

I love your use of "tick tock" for the shawl, because my first impression when I glanced at the photo was that it was a musical score, not a knitting chart. (The "tick tock" of the metronome and all.) Which of course makes me feel guilty that the cello sits untouched. Tick-tock, tick-tock, not enough ticks or tocks in the day to do all of the knitting *and* music I'd like to do.

(Oh, and very nice socks. They look like they're comfy, in addition to pretty. As lovely as I'm sure your ass is, I'll pass on the slapping part. But I'm happy to call you Sally, for such a fine job on the sock.)

It doesn't seem to have taken you long to get a good result from your spinning. I've an uneducated eye, but I'd knit what you've got on the bobbin.

I like the socks too. You've got me considering the blue pattern for my next patterned sock.

Good luck with the shawls.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to refrain from laughing and aggravating one's cough from a nasty cold when you post stuff like this?!? Onomatopoeia, indeed. That does it; I've gotta replace my lost copy of Poplollies & Bellibones this month. Beautiful everything, including the words. I think we should make you the poster blogger for any of us who've ever had a co-worker give us a blank look when we've gone outside the confines of whatever the 'standard vocab' limit is these days. Lovely intercourse; thank you!

chris said...

HAHAHAHA! Your title killed me . . . and love the pictures (and captions).

Also, what jess said -- whatcha spinning?

My parents have that rug!

john said...

Why do you tease me with your Ashford?

marie in florida said...

lori said...

nice sock, glad to see that you found some "solid" color sock yarn that isn't black or white.like the
selection.

*Thwack*
Nice pics, Sally.

Aidan said...

Glorious!

And what program do you use for charting, if I may ask?

June said...

*slap*

Yo, Sally, what book is that?

Anonymous said...

Well, maybe this once. *whap!*

Great sock! What's the book being slurped over?

Julie said...

LMAO. I got this on bloglines without any indication there were photos - just the text. Knowing you, I clicked over to your blog to see what was up. I'm glad I did.

Beautiful work, and you are a sweetheart for knitting a christening shawl. It will become an heirloom. Good luck with it.

Ride, Sally, ride!

I need (!) to know what that book is, too.
Oh yeah, and beautiful work.

Anonymous said...

What's the book?
Thank you.
Happy New Year!

brewerburns said...

I'm really excited to see how the christening shawl turns out!

Rachel H said...

I, I... nope. Can't say what I'm thinking. It would forever shatter the image of 'sweet, innocent young thing' I'm trying to make people believe of me.

So instead I shall tell you how much I like those buttons you did for Amy. And that she's promised I can have some. And that when she has the official launch party for her book I really and truly think you need to be here for it.

I just can't figure out how the Harley mug fits into all of this...

ted said...

I'm curious which software you used to draw that chart. Or is it meticulously hand-drawn?

trek said...

Can't wait to see how many strange Google hits you get on this post, Sally.

lisa said...

sally -- what a lovely sock!

(my version of said ejaculation: "well, butter my thighs and call me slappy!" there's context for it, but everyone's better off not knowing about it!)

christine said...

When bloglines says "ejaculation" I must go look..............funny!

Danny Ouellette said...

Simply sumptuous socks Sally!

For those asking about the book, I think it is Creating Original Hand-Knitted Lace by Margaret Stove. The page layout looks about right.

Bev in TN said...

Can't help but wonder...were you thinking of the rude midwestern woman you met on a train a while back when you wrote the title for this post (I do hope she reads it)?

Ya know, don't you, that when you showcase your wonderful knitting we want details! Blue sock (gorgeous BTW): yarn? pattern? Also, your industriousness puts me to shame! Must be from all that fine air you breathed in God's country, a/k/a Maine.

Pamela said...

Some socks!

Anonymous said...

Holy shit, real knitting and spinning! Bravo! Both are superlative.

David said...

Hmmmm...
Oooh!
Aaaah!
Gasp!
{{clapclapclapclap}}

Lucia said...

Add me to the list of pattern coveters. There's something about manly blue cables that just gives me goosebumps.

The spinning is quite charming as well.

Anonymous said...

Very nice ejaculation!

Seems odd to ask what pattern you used for that...

Samina said...

Spiffy sock. Is that garter stitch edging at the heel flap?

Ditto on the "please disclose what pattern you're using" chants.

Carol said...

The delinquent reader here. Fabulous pics! That's a gorgeous sock! I have a similar blue now I have half a clue as to design.

tea cozy said...

that is the most beautiful and manly sock in the world! may I add to the long list of people who want to know whence the pattern?

yrs.,

turtlegirl76 said...

That sock is absolutely wonderful! I just did my first garter ridged heel flap and damn if that thing doesn't tickle my apparently sensitive foot. It doesn't bother you?

Josa Craft said...

Ow! You go, Sally...love the green one, too! You going to post the yarn on that one? You inspire me....

flutter said...

That is one HOT sock!

ZOW!
