And now, we return to our regularly scheduled blog

A lot of people out there are knitting socks. I know because I saw you last night, with your teeny tiny DPNs or dangling circulars, and oh so pretty sock yarns. Oh, yes. You’re out there.

And why not? Sock knitting is fun, portable, and instantly gratifying. That is, at least until you finish the first sock and start on the second. It’s called Second Sock Syndrome, and I’m sure you’ve heard of it. You may even suffer from it. But now, there’s a cure for SSS. It’s the Second Sock Swap!

Sign up and you’ll “only ever need to complete one sock at a time, and you’ll still get pairs, Hooray!”

Check it. (Link via Crafty Crafty, thanks!)


The Harlot Rules!

I just got back from the trip to Madison and (except for a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing that happened right after the Harlot finished her talk–we shall not speak of it here) I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Stephanie is as funny and engaging in person as she is in her books, and I’m so glad I got to meet her.

Here she is, holding my SIP, rubbing it up against the traveling sock. Awesome.
