just another pretty face….

things that make me go hmmm….

When the girls were little I bought them some fanciful bubble making wands. I thought they were a terrific idea – so simple, yet so clever.

When we got them home and had our soap solution all set up, I was astounded (and disappointed) that the bubbles produced were standard issue. The wands were in all sorts of shapes – stars, hearts etc. – but the bubbles were plain spheres. I honestly expected the bubbles to take the shape of the wand! I am still a bit surprised that they don’t! The Boar thought this was hysterical, and couldn’t believe the depths of my simplemindedness. He launched into the explanation for why this is — something I understood at the time of hearing, but cannot remember now.

Such are my impressions of knitting on dpns. I am making a pair of mittens (what an ordeal this has been — have had to rip out three times). Knitting on three needles would lead one to think that the fabric would come out in a triangular shape — but no! it’s circular! hmmm…..

  1. I laughed so hard when I read your bit about the bubble wands. You silly girl you. You are now officially the “Wifty Cousin”! I happily pass my crown to you! LOL
