sockin’ molly (september 2006– frogtober 2006)
best known for her ability to inspire the irish in all, molly could dance a jig that would make a leprechaun jealous. her twisted ribbing made us laugh and cry. she had a troubled life; rousing fits of complaints to her propensity to bleed onto hands and the fact that, well, she was JUST SO GREEN. molly will be most remembered and missed by those of “the unnamed sock club” of columbus, oh. she leaves behind two center-pull balls destined for over-dyeing.
mamluke (july 2006 – frogtober 2006)
until his ill-fated end, there was never any doubt the character and strength of mamluke. to him, there was only black and white (er, cream) – never any shades of gray. his intentions were clear: to bring two-color knitting to the lives of all knitters. unfortunately, his loose floats led to his ultimate demise. mamluke is survived by his primary cousins, red, blue and yellow.
they will be sorely missed.
what a bummer.
