I’ve finished another pair of socks. Sock making is really lovely, the effortlessly magical way the wool creates its stripy pattern continues to fascinate me 🙂
Child number one is very happy with them…Of course, as I’m sure those of you with children know, that means I am being asked on an almost hourly basis how I’m progressing on the socks I’ve promised to make for child number two:Not too badly, I reply…As I laze with my feet up and knit away the hours, pausing only to nibble on feijoas (notice anything in the spoon?), and smell the sweet scent of this beautiful blue hyacinth… Then I wake up from that daydream, roused by the call to get back to preparing breakfast/lunch/dinner/ washing laundry/ cleaning/ work/ finding some lost doodad/ chauffeuring children to music/ friends/ sports – did I mention I’m coaching a soccer team now too?
So yes Carter, I’m working on your socks love, they’ll be finished… soon, I promise.
