Have you guys seen Howl's Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki yet? As I was watching it, I looked over at these finished socks and thought "Wow, they're the same color!" Calcifer, if you've never seen the movie or read the book, is a fire demon with a mysterious connection to Howl. I can say no more because if you don't know the story it would give it aaaall away. But I recommend it highly!

They were fun socks, but I got burnt out. And now that I'm thinking "Gee, I want to knit something, I guess I can start another sock", I can't find my little silver sock-knitting bag. Maybe it's a sign?
P.S. I realize it's not mandatory to add anything to the Sockapaloooza package, but have those of you who are veterans done so? And what did you add?
By the way, Happy St. Patrick's Day! Too bad I'm not Irish. And that I don't drink. But I have an unfinished Arizona Green Tea (for my raging tummy troubles) and if I weren't going to bed, I'd drink a toast to you Irish and your Saint of the Patrick. Instead, have an Irish Celtic Podcast just for the season! And wish Marc Gunn a merry one because it's his birthday. And I think he might be irish, I don't know, but he likes the music so he's cool with me.
