Circus--Sockus....

*

I knitted a garter-stitch, raglan jacket inspired by the colors of the circus. (Or...at least....it's my particular "interpretation" of the colors of a circus....) The sleeve edges and bottom edge are large ruffles and the button band edge is feather and fan. I made a little....uh....pom-ponned "scarf" from the leftover yarn. (Just for the hell of it.) (Or are they tassles?)(And, like my socks, the jacket's two sleeves don't match...)

(You can click on the pictures to make them bigger.)

Little Baby is never interested in my creations. She'd rather get her nightly massage from Blaine, using the clicker as her pillow...

Then, as I was bored in the last couple of weeks, I took 4 different balls of sock yarn and decided to see how many different socks I could make out of them. Here's the first one below. (The cable part pulls it in like ribbing but it fits nicely.)

Then here's a pair of my "un-matching" socks with a feather & fan cuff and 2 different type heels.

This little green sock is my favorite, don't know why.

And below is Leonard, staring at me, as usual.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but he always gazes at me like I'm the biggest idiot in the world.

(Don't say it...)
