Rainbow-Pooping Unicorn Cross Stitch

You're about to see what's probably one of Alex's favorite things I've ever made. (Yes, he likes it even more than his Doctor Who TARDIS socks.)

We bought a house and moved in March. Once we got everything settled, we noticed that our bathrooms were missing something. Something that's not very classy. Enter the rainbow-pooping unicorn!

I am a big fan of potty humor, and by that I mean that I giggle about poop like a 5 year-old. Alex found this pattern on Etsy for me, and we knew it was the one.

Alex's Waffle Rib Socks

It's summer, and yes, I'm still knitting socks. It's like an itch that I just have to scratch or I'll go crazy.

I can't help it. Socks are so portable, and if you find the right pattern then you don't even have to look at it very often. It's perfect for traveling or when you're feeling lazy and don't want to concentrate too hard.

My latest sock knitting project is a pattern that I just stitched to make my own Waffle Rib Socks. Alex really liked my socks, so now he and I have twin socks. Sort of.

(It's not that Nietzsche wants to be in all our photos. It's just that when we go outside, he sticks close to us.)
