We regret to inform you...

....that the Bookish Girl has been consumed by her new sock project.

She was last seen pulling her hair out and screaming something along the lines of, "But it's variegation produces stripes when 26 sts are cast on, why not when 52 sts are cast on?!"

Last we checked (86 million times in the past hour) she was knitting to the gauge specified on the hand painted yarn's label. The yarn, produced by Dorchester Farms (no web site?), is Geor-gie-ous. While the Bookish Girls questions how a farm could ever exist in Dorchester, a large neighborhood of the metropolis Boston, she chooses to suspend disbelief. After all Marky Mark was bred and raised there. He even had a HORRIBLY INCONSISTENT Boston accent in the Perfect Storm. Clearly, stranger things have happened.

Undeniably The Bookish Girl was a bit unstable before this current sock event. Shit-Com Chic?! The Bookish Girl Tee?! They were all signals that she was on the verge of being eaten by her knitting. We can assure you that she has resigned herself to the wanton self-patterning craziness of this particular yarn colorway and is completely in love. We are satisfied that she has worked through her initial hysteria and moved on to obsession. She will surely be "back to normal" (obviously a relative state for this lady) when the sock is completed and the mystery of the variegation pattern has properly revealed itself. At this point in time Mr. Bookish has threatened that he, "May wear them when she is not around." in spite of their lovely Picot edge and pinky/ corrally /blacky colors. The man needs a sock of his own to love.

Until our faithful super hero friend returns please take a gander at this site:

Terra Pass - where you can give money to an environmental organization that works to offset the CO2 emission and subsequent environmental degradation of your HUGE AMERICAN CAR.

Ignoring the request to even take a moment to consider the impact we each have on the environment will surely lead the Bookish Girl to rant Phil. about the state of our earth.

We wouldn't want that.

Trust us.

So no Diamond Fantasy, huh. ;-)

Good luck with that sock thing. And for the record - I married Geor-gie-ous!

Maybe it doesn't want to stripe. MAY-BEEE you should just let the yarn do what it wants. Hmmmm?

I have been seduced til 4:30 am (eek) by my graphics tablet and am now too bleary eyed to knit anything, even a second garter stitch surprise baby jacket that's almost done. Nope, no babies coming in MY family, but lots of OTHER people are having them. ahem.
