Socks and a Silly Song
So in amongst all the WIP's that I can't blog about yet I've started a pair of socks...some of you will recognize this popular pattern Pomatomus from Cookie A...I'm probably the last person to knit one of her patterns ... there are a gazillion projects for her socks on Ravelry!!....however better late than never....and the gorgeous sock yarn I bought from Gryphon recently, called out to have it's heathery hues on display soon.......before it's flip flop time again here in California (which will probably be next month)!
I have only knit 3 pairs of socks in my life so far and they were all basic, bog-standard ones so it is a delight to see such a beautiful pattern emerging on these......but a thought has occurred...how does one show off ones fancy socks for admiring comments?
Here for your amusement is a song by the hilarious kiwi boys Flight of The Conchords...the name of these socks (because I always pronounce it incorrectly) makes me think of this song
Warning: There are are a few obscenities uttered in this song....but only to make fun of the truly derogatory rap out there!
