Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Democracy is Exhausting

I have a new link >>> This is the blog of the designer of the Knitty pattern Diamante A beautiful pattern. Deb also has a pattern for a felted Patons Soy Wool Stripes Felted Bag I know Jayne had great success with this yarn making slippers. So naturally I thought of her when I saw this pattern.
I am frogging the leg pattern on the Tweedy Goodness socks. I really like the looks of the Diamante sock and I think my daughter will like it also. Well I hope so :-)

Democracy is exhausting. After toting the ladies to vote, several gave me those granny cocker spaniel eyes and wondered,sigh, wondered if I would mind making a quick stop at several places. I don't mind but I am not as energetic as they are. So we went to the post office, several grocery stores (had to be the one with senior citizen discount day) I got kissed, patted on the cheek and told my Mamma would be proud of me, cause I am such a good girl. They play me like a harp.
They are all praying for T and her family. And they are a power to be reckoned with.
And the ladies were eyeing my sock in progress. Comments, so nice and warm. Shame I never got to make socks for my Mamma, but that doesn't mean they would mind standing in. But not those wild colors, pink is nice or a pretty blue. If you hear harp music it isn't heaven, it is me being played by the masters :-)

ROFL! Those little old ladies do it charmingly and so innocently, don't they? But just think of all the good karma you built up all in one day.

Blogger Kim Says:

Sounds like they have experience with this sort of thing! I bet they enjoyed their day and told all their friends about the "young lady who knits socks".

Blogger jayne Says:

It is kind of nice to hang around with people who think you're just a young chick. Bet you made their day.

BTW, I like the look of that felted SWS bag on Deb's site. I have that colourway too. Thanks for the heads-up. :)
