What's up with the Oracle?

So does anyone remember this movie???? Can anyone tell me what the Matrix is??? Anyone??? -Right.

Well, My niece Alex requested some green & purple socks. And like a good Auntie, I promised to deliver her said socks. I sat down in from of my computer prepared to find green & purple sock yarn, when the light bulb went off!

I have that color combo in my stash. Hurray for me! Hurray for Alex! Here are Alex's socks in Lisa Souza's "Sock" LimeNViolet colorway. Knit on size 1 circular needles. Magic Loop Method. Basic Toe-Up pattern.
Skully is modeling how much yarn was left over....Loads of this stuff! I'm sure I can get two more pair out of it.
Now, these guys had very interesting color pooling.... So, I am renaming them "Matrix" socks. If you stare at them long enough you may get the plot to that movie!

DSL Tank from Fitted Knits is just about complete. I need to weave in the ends, add buttons and she will officially be D-O-N-E. I will try to get off my lazy butt and finish her up this weekend. (key words being try and lazy)
I will leave you with my next Fitted Knits project. Can you see what it's going to be? This book is fabulous and I highly recommend it.
This is a definite Winter wear item for me. Cascade 220 and California weather don't really mix well....but I love working with the wool. Maybe Rowan's Calmer for vest #2.

Really, what else is there to say?

My son is just about old enough to watch The Matrix and I'm looking forward to watching it with him. DSLT is next up on my queue and I'm so excited to get to it. The vest is also on my to do list. I have a ton of Cascade 220 I'm hording for sweaters from Fitted Knits.

Sorry...what book is that?

Terrific idea to name the socks "matrix". Good for you.

Love the yarn you will be using for the pattern in "the book".

The DSL is amazing. What a beautiful color. Makes me want to knit it up. And I have been pondering the vest. . . maybe I shall try it.

that tank kicks ass!! love it!!

Love the DSL! This really turned out nice - can't wait to see what it looks like on! I mentioned on the KAL that I really like your vest as well.

Yeah, the Oracle - I think people needed to be taking a few of the red pills (or was it the blue?) to get all the weird references in that movie. Liked it just for its originality, and some of its quotes ("Human beings are a disease", which I think of sometimes while sitting in traffic) but it was out there! Then again, I am a notoriously bad movie critic.

That drop stitch tank is gorgeous. That color will look lovely on you. That is one that I want to try very soon. I agree this book is awesome!
