First, let me give a big ol’ shout out to the Squid and wish him a happy first birthday! There was party and cake and tons of gifties for the big boy. And for a moment, all was right with the world.

One of my gifts to the little man are a pair of socks that just happen to match a pair of my own. Crazy, eh? These are from my first batch of Kool-Aid dyed yarn (discussed here), and since he was a part of that I figured he deserved a pair.

Of course, so do I. So I have another new pair of socks. (Does this give me one or two credits for 200Sox?) I love how the striping came out on these socks, and the colors are just – POW! Yes, I did purposefully try to match the socks, but if you look closely I’m a little off. (Yes. Off my rocker.) Like by half a round or so. But I’m still happy about ’em, so Weeee!

Another gift that I made for the Squid-kid is a Mr. Dangly, except this clone appears to be French. Go figure.

And sometime (last weekend) between my first Kool-Aid dyed socks and the Squid’s momentous event, more yarn was Kool-Aid dyed. This time in greens and blues, but yes – self-striping again (I hope).

    M. Dangly is adjusting well to his new accommodations and hasn’t complained about the drooling (much). The socks are even cuter when the Squid is wearing them!! Thank you so much NanC!
