Adirondacks and Socks


IMG_0501Somehow it seems appropriate that I am knitting socks for Maddie while reading her the book Excuse Me Sir, Your Socks are on Fire. We are laughing our way through the book which is an account from a former ranger in the Adirondack Park in New York. Its been good for Maddie to hear some of the stories since her goal at the moment is to be a park ranger. Many of the stories are really humorous and all of them are taking place around the part of the park we know. I finished one sock and have started the other. As I have said before its my favorite pattern! I think maybe the snow is starting to melt then maybe we can get outside a bit. We are looking forward to that! What are you knitting and reading this week?

Joining Small Things for the yarn along.

  1. This is funny 🙂
    Such a good fit of book and beautiful knitting!

  2. cute socks and it sounds like a fun entertaining book.

  3. I love the title of the book! I may get that for my niece to go along with her birthday socks.

    • You may want to read it first Donna! While most of the stories so far have been appropriate some are not quite so or well, maybe a good way to learn a lesson! One was about how he was trying to talk to some hikers while one of the girls stripped down to go skinny dipping. There is also a lot of outhouse humor which just goes along with being in the woods in all honesty! Just good to know whats coming…..although age is certainly a factor.

  4. I love the color of that sock yarn!
