Episode 96: I Dream of Zombies
This Zombies are taking over! Lately I've been watching back-to-back episodes of The Walking Dead, in addition to the Stockinette Zombies podcast. I'm Also resurrecting a pair of Zombie BBQ socks, which I cast on over a year ago — It's no surprise zombies are starting to invade my dreams.

The Languishing and Dearly Departed WIPS
Zombie BBQ - I was watching Stockinette Zombies the other day and Amy also cast on a pair of vanilla socks using the same yarn over a year ago. I poked her on Ravelry about it … so one of us has to make the move to motivate the other to finish it … I’m thinking after I finish my current pair of vanilla socks.
Sirdar pullover - Apparently, I’m not so jazzed about knitting a sweater purely out of laceweight. So, Im just going to let this one go quietly into the night.

Adventures in Hand-Dyeing:
- Absinthe Colorway - A nice bright green with black splatters
I wanted to order another sock blocker (purely for photographing purposes, because I’m tired of taking blah photos of my finished socks) However, I couldn’t just order a sock blocker without ordering more … sock yarn!
