Miscellaneous knitting

A couple of weeks ago I finished the socks I started knitting on the way to Cancun. They're made of Plymouth Sockotta, which is perfect for warm weather socks.

The squares for the Greensburg Project are ready to be boxed and mailed on Monday.

A few days ago I went with all the children to see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. While watching the movie I started knitting a pair of socks using yarn I bought two years ago at Knitting Addiction while enjoying a knitting weekend at Meg's parents' home on the Outer Banks. Meg, Penny, Laurie and I visited the shop twice that weekend, and one of the times I bought what Penny referred to as my "Girl Scout sock yarn." It doesn't look so bad knitted up. And I think since I started knitting it while watching the movie, they should hereafter be referred to as my Pirate Socks. (Got that, Penny?)

Great socks! But I can't believe you knit during Pirates?? I knit every chance I get... but Pirates got me full attention. I guess if you hang around a houseful of boys long enough it's bound to happen. :)

Tammy, Tammy, Tammy - I kept my eyes on the screen for the entire movie! Unlike you, I knit only boring socks - mindless socks. Never socks with a complicated pattern. These socks are 60 stitches with a bit of ribbing at the top, then just knit around forever. Or until you're ready to make the heel. Not brain surgery. Mindless knitting... .
