Eating with A.PeachIf you ever share a meal with A.Peach this is what you can expect...
She gets her's with an extra side of mashed potatoes, but since I'm Not A.Peach, I got mine with a side of corn.
Ain't that a beautiful sight? 9 knit grrls and 9 knit socks. Good socks; great friends!
A single sock was knit secretively for one of the other 9 knit grrls while secretly someone was knitting for you. Ah... the intruige. Ah... the mystery. ('cept 'cuz a.peach was the mastermind and secret name picker-outer-and-notifiier. sheesh)
Turns out our a.peach not-so-stealthily-but-still-secretively designed and knit socks for BotGurl. She was gifted a peachy sock from none other than Purse Ho!
Lookie here, an FO. That a.peach is one mean sock knittin' machine!
This is the first finished pair from the wall of
shame, er... sock. These are knit with Schoeller Stahl yarn. Hmm... I don't have the colorway name or number, needle size, or how many skeins it took. But I'm fairly certain that they were knit cuff-down using a basic sock pattern (ribbing + stockinette leg & foot + heel flap).
Anyhow she did 'em, they're beautiful. And I really like the mismatchedness of them. I can just imagine her knitting the second sock... "pink ribbed cuff, a matchy... grey, cream, blue, mmmmmm... matchy..... gold heel flap and burgandy stripe, still pretty matchy .. these socks are incredibly matchy!.... pink and grey and cream - woohoo!... blue and... WAIT! Where's the matchy?" Hee hee hee
You see no struggle on her face, no fight in her swim. A.peach is at peace with the sea of sock yarn and dpns. For a while, she stays afloat, completing her SSSSsock and starting another. But then she takes on my yarn and starts to go under. One last thrust of arm bursts through the waves of fiber, only to wave you on and grab another skein.
A.peach has finished one sock for the SSSS with us local knitgals, and has started another sock. I don't know how her progress on those other socks are going. Any FOs, heels or toes? She's also purchased more sock yarn. Like an addict.
But who am I to throw stones? I, too, have purchased more (More, MORE!) sock yarn and I haven't even finished my SSSSsock. Ah, but I am not a.peach.
