It’s a wonder I remember how to knit.
But it seems that I do, and I actually did some work on Deirdre last night, apres margarita.
It doesn’t look like there are any margarita-induced errors . . .
And I worked on the Tiger sock today.
I’m into the ribbing at the cuff. Wheeeeee!
I divided the skein into two equal balls of yarn, and I plan to knit til I run out. Here’s how much there is left for the first ball:
But still I am distracted. Gee, I wonder why?
In an effort to distract you from my distraction, allow me to show you some beautiful sock yarn I bought last week:
This is from Lisa Souza — ain’t it glorious??!! Left to right the colors are Mahogany, Peacock, and Wild Things. And they are much prettier in real life! It is her Sock! yarn — 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. She also has a sock yarn that is 100% superwash merino, for you wool purists.
But me? I like a sock yarn that has some nylon in it because I think the sock wears better. That’s not to say that I don’t love 100% wool sock yarn, I’m just happier with it if there’s a bit of nylon added.
Again, Thank You
Wow, I can’t thank you enough for all the comments and emails you’ve sent me in support of my book. And I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to hear how so many of you are enjoying it.
I really, really enjoyed writing it — even though it was tiring and frustrating and sometimes so dang hard to put into intelligible English what I was trying to say. It really wasn’t until after I submitted the manuscript to my publisher I started thinking “Yikes! People are actually going to read this? What was I thinking? What if everyone thinks it sucks? And what if it does suck?” So it’s been scary, too.
So now it’s out there, and so far, no one has told me it sucks (I repeat, so far!), therefore I am over-the-moon happy. This book has truly been a labor of love for me, so thank you for buying and reading it.
“Hey! Don’t forget I helped you write it!”
