Let’s start with some knitting ….. above is a picture of my latest sock project. Do you see the camera hog pug in the bottom left corner? I am working on the Oak Ribbed Sock pattern from Nancy Bush’s Knitting Vintage Socks book. Margene gifted me this book – signed, no less! – during our Pal exchange and I am loving it. thanks Margene!!
It is nice to break out and try a new sock style. I found I was becoming a tad stubborn with the thought of doing a different heel. I like the traditional S1K1 heel pattern and was being obstinate about trying anything new. I figure I like the way it fits my foot, why change? Which calls to mind the old adage, “The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth”. Well, this pattern has a French Heel and a Round Toe. I am using Trekking XXL – this particualr Trekking has a definied striping pattern.
Onward to some exciting things ……
Cara and I are planning an outdoor get together! How about we take our wheels out for a spin? Let’s all flock to Central Park …… RSVP over at Cara’s site – knitters are welcome too!
And now an abrupt ending to this entry because it is 70 degrees outside and I want to get out there …… in closing, if you have asked yourself if I have seen this:
Ann read this!!!
yes, very funny you guys!!!
thanks to Nancy for the marquee fun! She may have been joking when she came up with this little gem, but I think everyone should institute the Ann Alert System ….. it will certainly streamline my blog reading! : )
