I’m all about knitting with the seasons. You can see I”m at the toe of my first sock knit in a long time. Dee, you have inspired me with your sock knitting. I love to pick sock yarn and I love to see how it works up.
I had a revelation the other day. I know, another one! I’ve discovered I have lots of sock leftovers because I rarely knit a full length sock. I usually knit a shortie. So, here’s to full length socks.
I also may, just may , try a toe up. I know, crazy right? Have you? Do YOU?
My red bellied woodpecker image has a cool quality that I wasn’t going for. I took it through the screen on the porch and this is what happened.
I have some unsolicited tips for you today:
*Folgers makes a coffee pod that is biodegradeable. Now if only I liked their coffee.
*To keep myself in check at parties, I can have one bite of everything. No more.
*I have an electric throw blanket. It makes a chilly room warm, and I’m oh so popular with the cats when its out.
*I love the Pentatonix Christmas cd. I better go put it on now.
*To make a lump free gravy my Nana taught me:
Put some flour and salt and pepper in a small glass. Add water and stir until smooth. Add lots of water. Then as your drippings are boiling, add this to it. Turn it down and simmer for at least 20 minutes or it will taste like flour. Also, you need to keep adding some water as it cooks down. Or old neighbor also added a beef bouillon cube for color and flavor. I LOVE GRAVY.
(True confessions: Growing up my sister and I each had a bowl of gravy without our mom knowing. We threw up all night. Sorry. Had to tell the story. Still love gravy)
