sweet georgia sock

I've been a busy little bee the last 4 days. I've been working like mad and you would not believe what I've been doing.

Saturday I spent on the site of this short film that heavily featured a cockroach. A real cockroach.

From Sunday to yesterday I was working my little fingers to the bone sewing purple, spangly octopuss legs for a drag queen costume for this Off Broadway play. Oh, and a suit made out of green fur. For real.

The upside is that I knit almost an entire sock from my Sweet Georgia Speed Demon sock yarn! I'm finally knitting a sock and liking it. I'm' using Speed Demon in Velvet Underground and a 32" size 5 circular needle. I *heart* the magic loop!

Oh and I apologize for the abundance of cat hair in the picture. If you have an allergy, you should look away. Quick!

Sounds like you've been busy! And those crafty projects are quirky and fun... Octopus legs for a drag queen? :)

I can't wait to try out the Magic Loop - I bought the pamphlet and was reading up on the technique on the subway this morning. :)

Hey, where the hell are you? Let's hang out outside of the point one day. Hell, why not? We're freelancers!
