One Brainless Blurple down, and some Friday Finds

One "brainless" sock in the Blurple colorway is finished, from the magic cast-on toe to the Russian bind-off at the top.

The journey has been anything but "brainless." I made a comment to that effect on the Ravelry page for this pattern, noting to others who want to use the pattern to pay close attention at the transitions from one section to another. The designer wrote back saying that was why the pattern was called "brainless" and not Brainless. Get it? It's like calling the 300 lb linebacker "Tiny" or a bald guy "Curly."

Hahahaha. Yeah, I'm laughing. Still, the sock is very nice, and I expect the second will be easier, now that I know some of the pitfalls.

And now for some Friday Finds to entertain you as the week comes to a close:
