Socks and smiles
I don't know how I missed it 'til now, but I did and the deadline draws near. Here is my photo for Jane's sock contest. That's my only pair of finished socks, nice woolies that may well adorn my feet as soon as I hit "save" because it's darn chilly tonight, and the start of my second pair of which I wrote this morning. I was even able to get a few rows knit at lunch today.
Mdd walked out the front door with the dog the other day and saw this arrangement of leaves and twig; she was so struck by the naturally occurring "smile" that greeted her on the sidewalk and had to run back in for the camera to take a picture. It is kind of cute in a macaroni & cheese way.
And since I'm here blogging, I'd like to share something I found when I was visiting Lynne down under this afternoon. She had a link for "Knitting With Mum," a radio knit-along at Melbourne's vega 91.5. A certain set of instructions for a mystery project is given during the show every morning, while knitting with mum (I don't know what kind of music mum likes), and in the end you'll have... something... that you've knit yourself. I just love this idea!! It appears that the directions are posted each day, as well, so anyone can knit along!
And did I tell you that I'm finally getting the cure for my M*c Attack? I'm going on a quick day trip to Madison tomorrow. I'll have to fight off my mom, who trumps me with her grandma status, but I'll get me some snuggles somehow -- and smiles! Have a great weekend.
