Lucy and I had a lovely visit with a friend last night.
Nope, it wasn’t L-B, as some of you guessed in the comments. But you were close — geographically, at least. It was Alice, who lives not terribly far from L-B.
I first met Alice when I was 18 years old and we both worked in the same place as our summer job for that summer between high school and college. We lost touch a few years after that and didn’t make contact again until Alice found me a couple of years ago while searching online for sock patterns. I hadn’t seen her for a bit over a year before last night’s visit, so it was great to have a chance to sit and knit and catch up.
Lucy really enjoyed meeting Alice, and not only because Alice brought her a gift of organic catnip.
That’s not to say that Lucy didn’t enjoy the ‘nip! She had a high old time last night.
Here’s a picture of Alice photographing Miss Lucy, who is wired for sound.
Alice brought me a gift too:
Some of her own gorgeous handspun — 460 yards of a lovely dk weight merino. Yum!
I worked on my second Asparagus Cable sock.
Which reminds me, thanks for all your nice comments on the Asparagus Cable socks. I’m quite pleased with them myself. The pattern will be available for sale soon. I’ll be sure to let you know when and where when the time comes.
Thanks also, for all your kind concern for the state of my health. I did have my MRI on Tuesday, and the technician (who was extremely kind and considerate) let me take a peek at it on screen. I’d never seen one on screen before and I think she enjoyed demonstrating it. She showed me the cross-section of my back.
Me: Cool — that looks like two rib eye steaks in there.
Her: Well, yeah, those are your back muscles.
Good thing I’m not in the medical profession, eh?
So at this point I’m waiting for the results to be sent back to my doctor and for him to decide the next step.
Next up on the knitting front — a new sock that is very exciting! Why is it exciting? Tune in on Sunday and I’ll tell you!
“I wonder where Momma hid the ‘nip that Auntie Alice brought me?” I could do with a pinch right about now . . . “
