Just a quick postcard from Monteagle to show you Proof of Progress on my vow to help provide a lifetime supply of handknitted socks for Stephen Colbert–if he decides to cover the recent Ravelympics fiasco and I do mean fiasco. I’m knitting these with Size 2 pitchforks.
This is Sock Number One using the sock pattern we named for Stephen Colbert: the Stephen Colbert Sock from Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines, back in 2008.
Mr. Colbert, let’s just say that there are more where this came from, should you decide to shed some of your Colbertian light on the recent unpleasantness regarding the United States Olympic Committee’s attitude toward the knitting community. There are 476 knitters over at the Ravelry Socks for Stephen group . . .
