Empirical Evidence

It's a well documented fact that nona is an avid sock knitter who is extremely happy sitting on her ass watching tennis and knitting.  This is no speculative claim, scientific reader, as I have empirical evidence as proof.  Just look at the Hydrangea sock I've been knitting while watching the U.S. Open...

The hydrangea photo is so beautiful, I keep it next to me when I knit

The leg of this sock is worked in a simple 2 round lace pattern that spirals around and around -- very cleaver and hypnotic.  I'm through the gusset -- don't you love that word -- and am racing toward the toe.  If it weren't for last night's U.S. Open rain-out, I'd be there -- the toe -- by now.  I sure hope it clears today, 'cause my ass needs some sittin' and my sock needs some knittin'.

Love the sock - the color and the pattern are both GREAT! I, too, could sit on my ass all damn day and knit (socks, sweaters, anything at all).

Well it's a good thing that butts were made for sittin' =)*) or knitters everywhere would be in serious trouble!

Lovely lace spirals! I love simple pattern repeats that break up the monotony but are still fun.

Gorgeous sock. I love to sit on my ass and knit, too! Especially socks.

That is beautiful yarn! What kind and color is it?

So glad you are liking the sock pattern! I hope the US Open isn't rained out today. I was looking forward to spending a bit of time on my ass last night and the weather really put a damper on the whole plan.

Nice to see you're posting something more than your stash. The socks are gorgeous! Where did you find that pattern?

I'd love the source on that sock pattern, also. Very lovely colorway, well worth it's name.
