Today is Tuesday, so I headed up to Arlington (about 4 miles) to see my grandmother at the nursing home. She’s going to be 103 years old on Sunday! Yes, you read that right, 103. I will do more of a post about her on Sunday. For those of you who don’t know much about me, I love to ride my bike and am really psyched that cycling season is here! Anyway, it wasn’t raining when I started out. It was a bit windy but not bad. All in all, I had a nice ride up and a nice visit. Unfortunately, when I came out, it had started raining. Riding in the rain doesn’t bother me all that much, especially when there’s a hot bath and a warm change of clothes waiting for me at home. If I was camping somewhere, I’d be singing a different tune. One thing I did discover is that my bargain rack windbreaker is waterproof! Hooray! The other thing is that I’m never having a bad day when I’m wearing my….
COOKIE MONSTER SOCKS!
Somewhere next to the soft spot on my heart for warm hand knit socks is an equally warm spot for goofy, brightly colored cycling socks. I think if I had to pick my favorite, it would be a tie between Cookie and my pink flamingo socks. There are also the cloudy sky socks, the skeleton socks and the flame socks. I just love them all and can’t wait to see what crazy socks they’ve come out with this year!
Well, now that I was all bathed and dry and dressed, I had to go back out into the rain again to go to the post office which is okay because I was going there to mail the first skein of yarn I SOLD ON ETSY! Hooray! Someone actually bought some sock yarn. Thank you to Patience and Guido kicking my butt until I actually set up the Etsy store!
I’m going to finish up with the first of my current UFOs. I figure I can handle it if I just do a little at a time.
This is a sock I started a week or so ago. I thought it was for me but it is actually for a friend of mine. How do I know? The sock told me. This is not strange to me. I ask you, fellow knitters, is this strange to you? Apparently, it was a little strange to the person they are for. Not that he said anything but he gave me that look. And then I started to feel like I’d said something weird. But it seems perfectly logical to me. I start things all the time that aren’t necessarily for the person I intended them for. Mostly, I just go with it. I mean really, I’m not one to argue with the sock.
Anyway, more UFOs tomorrow and maybe some links. Happy knitting!
