One becomes Two

So, whilst listening and crooning along to Deano, Sam and Frank over the weekend, my lovely socks have been finished. (So how much time exactly do you think I spent sitting on my backside!) The Rat Pack DVD was good - although I have decided that although Frank Sinatra was possibly the most famous of the three, I definitely prefer Deano's voice, and Sammy Davis Jnr was the most amazing performer! The DVD was in black and white and not the best quality but it was really good fun, and they sung a lot of the old favourites. A final thanks to Helen for my beautiful gifts - all knitted up now -except the alpaca - which is still being spun in between all my other projects. I've loved making everything THANK YOU!

Fame was good too - for a whole lot of other reasons! - It was really cheesy, and very 80's, but it was a good part of my childhood, and maybe if kids had more of these cheesy programmes to watch now, they would be more likely to take up sport/dance/anything!! I can remember dancing round the lounge and singing the songs. It was nostalgic fun. (And Badger. . . . . headband maybe. . . . . . but leotard - NO WAY!!!!!)

I had to include this little shot - Caption something along the lines of "Oh crap, I've been caught" Needless to say the tree my beloved spaniel is trying to climb is the plum tree! - it is mostly empty now (hence the need to climb it!) but she won't give up until every last morsel of fruit is gone! - she knows it's wrong - hence shot being slightly out of focus - if I had moved in closer she would have innocently and very gently climbed down and probably feigned sleep under the tree - "What me - NO - I've been asleep all this time"

    ha ha i watched saturday night fever and it reminded me of all those dance routines we used to make up - back in the days when we were gorgeous in leotards!!! sis xxx ps - leroy is still gorgeous isn't he?!

  2. Those are lovely socks. I can imagine the guilty/innocent look on Spot's face. My dog Max has perfected that look! Usually followed with that irresistable hang dog look: 'Who me? I'm so sad that you think that about me...@ :-)

  3. Groovy socks! I love that knitting reminds me of what I was watching or listening to when I made it. Although this does mean that my alpaca earflap hat shall be ever more associated with a syphalitic Johnny Depp in The Libertine!

    Cool pic of Spot peering though the leaves!

  4. Fabby socks! And I think a knitted leotard would look lovely ;)

  5. The socks look great. Think you need to knit some acid dayglo ones now with matching leg warmers in homage to Fame. Glad you enjoyed reminiscing and Spot is so funny, but don't think I would want to clean up after him after he'd been eating plums!

  6. Love the socks! Your dog looks like a real character!

  7. Fantastic socks!

    I used to love Fame - definitely agree you need to knit some legwarmers to go with it ;)

  8. The socks are just lovely! What pattern did you use?

    From another knitting Noo!
