They are complete! It took me an age to finish these socks, but as usual I hit a rut when working on the second sock. Second socks are just the worst, I always run out of steam when I get to them. Plus, these were super boring to knit since it was just stockinette stitch (I turned them inside out) Also, somehow, one of the socks is bigger than the other… despite my counting every row and measuring and trying to get things to match up. It is just my luck. I guess no two socks are alike… especially if I knit them.
I don’t really care though, because these socks are hella comfortable. I am wearing them right now and they are fantastic. Madeline Tosh knows what’s up when it comes to spinning some sock yarn. If you have the spare cash and love knitting yourself socks, it is worth the investment.

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines

Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines

In rain or shine

They left the house at half past nine

The smallest one was Madeline.”

-Ludwig Bemelmans, Madeline, 1939

I would like to share a sampling of the graduation project that I had so much fun illustrating! It’s an old series, but one of my childhood favorites. There has been a TV series and a live action film, but never a modern-ish animated feature, and it was a bit of a passion project to imagine what it would look like, down to the character designs and the actual scenes.

Also, I might have some good news to announce soon… keeping my fingers crossed in the meantime! ♪

SAKANA is awesome! The creator Madeline Rupert is one of my biggest artistic inspirations plus she’s a really cool person!
Hmm, my favorite character… Hmmmmmm…

Clue references in Poe Party (56/?): Fascinated as we are by all the details of what happened here, this has been an extremely trying evening, so we really wouldn’t mind if you skipped a few.

“The popular idea of a vamp is a long, slinky woman with black bandolined hair, a bare back and many jewels. And the screen formula for corralling a man is a look into his eyes, a shrug and a slow heave. Whether people believe such things exist, I do not know, but I do know they like to see them.” – Madeline Hurlock, former Sennett Bathing Beauty, who excelled as a comic vamp. Her quote came from a 1924 interview.

Here she is in front of the Ambassador Hotel, taken in the mid to late 1920s. It’s one of my all-time favorite photos.
