Tough week. Apart from everything else that’s going on, we’re getting new information on evacuation in the event of attack and “shelter in place” information. I ought to bring a pile of wool and some needles to work in case this comes to pass. If I was stuck at the office for any length of time I’d have my sock-in-progress done in no time.
Wow! musta hit a nerve with yesterday’s “Knitting Leeches” topic, judging from all the comments. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
Here’s a story about knitting ingratitude and cluelessness.
A few years ago I knit this for my brother, for him to use as an afghan, and gave it to him for Christmas. His wife took it away from him because she decided she was going to use it as a chair cover (I discovered later). She put it on an armchair and tucked it in tightly. Well, of course, the yarn broke in a few places after people sat on it and strained the fibers. So she stuffed it in a plastic bag, gave it to me and said “Fix this for me.”
Needless to say, it’s still in the plastic bag. Not fixed. And I learned a valuable lesson.
A bit more done . . .
And a new sock-in-progress. Check the sidebar for details.
My buddy Geane has a blog! Check it out! Be sure and read her “Never Asked Questions” and “Top Ten List.” She’s just started, but there’s already a great photo of one of her WIPs.
Have a good weekend, all. Assuming I don’t get blown to bits by terrorists before then, I’ll talk to you Monday.
