Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Driving Me Crazy!!!


Hey, it’s Maria.

Guess who’s driving me crazy?

It’s the blonde. No, not the little boy; the little girl. She decided she was done sleeping at 6:30 this morning. I am NOT a morning person. The little boy is quite cute too, isn’t he? He’s kid #5. I haven’t decided what to call the kids yet for blog purposes.

On the knitting front, I’m going to have to dig in the archives since the camera is still in the motorhome, and I’m too lazy to go get it. But, do not fear! I have more Socks that Rock. First up is a pair of basic cable socks in the Jingle Bells Rock colorway. This color is currently available on STR’s website.

Oh, you wanted to see the cable. Here it is.

I don’t remember what I used for a pattern. I think I just took a basic sock pattern and added a cable.

Yes, I do knit more than just sock, but you’ll have to take my word for it for now. In the interim, I’ll show you one more pair of socks.

I didn’t think these were the Sherbet colorway, but maybe they are. I used a pattern from Sensational Knit Socks by Charlene Schurch.

These are the socks I wear with my clear clogs. I’m trying to embarrass my kids, but that’s almost impossible. I’m known as the craziest mom among their friends. What an honor!!!

I think my blog partner has been attacked by a pile of killer textbooks. Although, when I talked to her last night, she was watching “How to Marry a Millionaire”. I think if she was going to do that, she should have gone to Pepperdine or Harvard.

Maybe the next post will be WIPs! I have tons of them. I thought about lining them up around the perimeter of my bedroom and doing a row a day on each of them.

Hey Lexi, is my cooking looking better???
