Two PSs

PS is for postscript: The Pequannock, NJ girls team is playing for the Little League Softball World Series championship tonight! Pequannock, incidentally, is Derek Jeter's hometown. [ETA: Alas, Mattawan, MI crushed them, 6-2.]

PS is for Perennis Sockapaloooza: I've cast on another Sockapaloooza angel sock. This one is for Phoebe, who would seem to have had both her pal and her first angel bail. Well, we can't have anyone going sock-less (and thereby getting cold feet or developing a complex).

The sock is a modified Basket Weave Rib Sock, in Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch, worked in Noro New Ruby (from stash), a lovely cotton blend. I find that basketweave patterns show off the beautiful long color runs and texture variations that many Noro yarns have; the rib gives the cotton yarn a bit more sproing. I've substituted a soft roll top for the 1x1 ribbing in the pattern as skinny ribbing is not a happy look for this yarn.

Oh, and the NJ Attorney General resigned, after it was revealed that she fixed some traffic tickets for her boyfriend.

Too funny about your AG...only in America!

I thought that looked like Noro. That's a neat idea to use it for a sock!
