One of my favorite lines from The Sound Of Music is when the Baroness looks down upon the grounds of Von Trapp land where the young Maria is walking , and says to the Captain, “there’s a girl who will never be a nun.”
Well, here’s some cotton yarn that will never be a sock. I tried. I tried more than once. Different needles, different patterns, and yet I still was not landing my knitland double sow cows, so to speak. Fear not! Olympic sock knitting continues.
This yarn is dreamy. Schoppel Edition 3 made in Germany. 100% wool. I think I will knit a ripple pattern for the body of this sock. This was intended to be shawl yarn.
I had fun making Valentine’s from the horses to their generous sponsors. I took all new photos, had them printed at Walgreen’s and got my markers out. Many of the issues I was having at the Barn office turn out to be the COMPUTERS problem afterall, not my ineptitude! Sounds like they are working on fixing the computer they ask me to work with. Phew. Sometimes you don’t know enough to know. Then you learn.
Wondering where Al is today? Well, she has a fab knit finish to show us tomorrow. She is having a friend over tonight and she will take some photos for her post. Al calls today, Galentines Day. Have you heard of it? You celebrate your gal pals and how much they mean to you. You are all My Galentines. I *heart* you all.
And for the few men who read this blog, you are my pals too.
