Socks in the Wild

Hello again and welcome to another episode of "Socks in the Wild". Today will be looking at the strange, inter-species behavior of the wild sock.

Our photographer managed to locate a wild sock without a mate. It looks quite lonely, doesn't it?
Using it's irrisitable charm, the wild sock attracted the attention of lonely creatures of another kind.
Shocking isn't it! This reporter is at a loss for words. The pictures speak for themselves.

Apparently, this is not the first time a wild sock has forged this type of relationship, as evidenced by this photograph, which shows the offspring of a wild sock and a squirrel.

This just in. There's been a horrible accident at a discounted yarn store. Reputable knitter, Mary Jane, lost her mind at the sales bin. To further compound this error in judgment, she went on to knit this tangle of yarn barf.

Mary Jane said "I just couldn't stop myself. I don't know what came over me." Some good will come of this tragedy as the pink scarf will be donated to a drive to raise funds for breast cancer.

Mary Jane appears to be in recovery. She was noted last night to be knitting a cabled baby sweater in cream colored yarn. Please leave your comments in support of Mary Jane as she tries to recover from her affliction.

Thank you.

    I love it when others see the humour in what I do. Just for the record the lovely cream yarn is a superwash merino wool also bought at a discontinuation sale.

  2. Just promise, Mary Jane, that you are not knitting scarves for squirrels.

  3. Those scarves were long enough to be burial shrouds for squirrels!

    MJ - I wouldn't have posted the humor if it weren't for your attitude. Besides, we all do it (knit something craptastic) once in the while.

  4. um, where did the squirrel get it's sweater from?? Laurie. . .that's not your third child is it?!?! = )
