Funky socks

Today I:

  • had a bowl of cereal with soy milk and a cup of genmaicha tea for breakfast
  • had an onion bagel with fake cream cheese for Second Breakfast
  • am having a bag of Fritos and a banana for lunch because I don't want to go outside
  • learned that a friend of mine's parents are stuck in Lebanon
  • am making a point of thinking a lot about my knitting

Wednesday night I couldn't drum up any enthusiasm for any of my knitting projects, so I started a new one.

This is Lana Grossa Fun Stripes. Notice how much brighter it is on my picture vs. the one on the website? Mine is the true color. This colorway is funky, if you know what I mean, which is why I chose it. Of course, I don't have much to wear with it, esp. since lately almost all my clothes are non-colors. Hmmm. I think they might go very well with my snow boots. Which are black.

However, Jameison approves., so it's alright.

Last night, I:

  • had miso soup with udon noodles for dinner
  • ate some salad
  • had S'nB at the coffeehouse again
  • had a small decaf soy latte and a bag of chip there

Good luck to your friends folks, hope they make it out safely.

Your socks are great! Very Ernie-Bert-esque. Wear them & smile.

I hope your friends' parents make it out to safety soon. Sad.

LOVE the colors! My daughter approves, so I guess I'll be making another yarn purchase soon. She called them crazy socks. Heh.

i, too, hope Lebanon becomes safe for everyone again SOON. i had a friend lose his childhood home to the senseless bombings. :(

and, i believe i've just fallen in love with your sock. is that possible? well, i have. please don't be angry, only flattered, when i am knitting a sock with the exact same yarn in a few months...hehe.

Being an avoider of current events and news, I'll just confine my comments to my love of your use of color to define the word funky. love it. And I will say a prayer for your friends' parents.
