Proud Parent of First Born Sock
Name: Opal Rainforest VI Sock Yarn, Color 4007 Furst Kunterbunt – yarn purchased at Sheep’s Clothing, Valparaiso, Indiana
Born: September 5, 2010 at 12:22 P.M. on two size 2 circular needles
Weight: 1.35 ounces
Pattern: SOCK I: How to Knit Socks on Two Circular Needles DVD, by Nenah Galati – Nenah is a friend. I loved this DVD so much that I’m now working with her in my spare time. I am planning on making my way through each of her DVDs and writing about them.
Labor pains: Minimal
Believe me, if I can give birth to a sock, anyone can . . . and it doesn’t even take nine months — more like three weeks. I’m still in awe of how The Yarn Harlot procreated, labored and birthed all in one day (see my earlier blog post). But then, I guess harlots get a lot of practice.
Just between you and me, I’m a little worried about this sock. It’s loud, and it may not sleep through the night. But, just like any new born, it’s soft, warm and cuddly. I won’t mind.
Off to nurse a glass of wine,
