You probably did not know that about me, did you? But I do.
I try from time to time to like stripes, but I just can’t. I just can’t. I feel like a clown on the rare occasions I wear stripes (and my feelings about clowns are well-known amongst my friends).
I did used to knit with self-striping sock yarn when it was first introduced a few years back. But none of those socks were ever seen on my feet.
This is a round-about way of saying that no, I will not be knitting striped socks using the pink and green yarns pictured in last Thursday’s post. Even contrasting heels are borderline for me.
While I like the idea of fair isle socks, I wouldn’t use sportweight yarns for such a design — that would make a very thick sock!
So, I picked the pink. Even though green is my favorite color. No worries, I’ll get to the green eventually.
Last Friday I had lunch with a blog-buddy (betcha didn’t even know she was down here, huh?). She brought me a lovely little box of chocolates from her sister’s company:
Believe it or not, there are still 2 left. But not for long . . .
Public Service Announcement
Susan of The Rainey Sisters recently blogged about the Wrapped in Care program. The purpose of the program is to provide hand-knit shawls to women who have experienced the death of a newborn at United or Childrens Hospital – St. Paul.
She has links to information about the program on her blog.
Back here at Wendyknits, Lucy says she is too exhausted to come to the blog right now . . .
