I'm glad I clicked on the Tim Finn link - I had no idea his first name was Brian!

Julia's legs look very happy with her new socks!


The day of the fish? I couldn't believe I was reading that correctly, until I saw the fish in his pocket. It has been a long time since HS French!

Those socks are great. Alas...only my son will consent to hand knit socks in my house (other than me, of course.) At 10, he is old enough that he wants boring socks. However, he did decide he wanted green (dark green) toes and heels to go with his dark blue (indigo) socks. It is so exciting when I get to switch to green and the slipped stitch heel after the rounds and rounds and rounds of k2 p2 leg. :)

thomas fersen's universe is brilliant, i love him too. on his last album there's a song he sings to his dog, 'Zaza tu pues,' ...you're so smelly but i love you anyway...:: neat little short character portraits. i'm glad you like him too.


I love those stockings. They look so warm and cozy and cheering! :)
Thomas Fersen's music sounds interesting. I'll have to check him out.


Thanks for the music tip! I simply LOVE that French cabaret sound (as I think of it). I have the Putamayo French Cafe, which we listen to with delight, so I ordered Paris and Fersen (after an amazon preview). You're my kind of bluestocking. To return the favor, you might like Paolo Conte, who, though Italian, seems to fit the genre.

Oh, nice fit on the socks.


Hello! Having discovered your blog while looking for the above picture of Virginia Woolf I'm much enjoying it. May I ask how much of the jitterbug you used? One skein or two? I have a single skein of the colourway Monet in my stash and am wondering whether it will stretch to knee-highs on its own. Those socks are just awesome.
