Finished the INDULGENCE 6 ply socks last night. ! As per my usual, I cheat and the toes are done by three needle bind off. I turn the sock inside out and work the stitches. I’m very happy with this pair of socks. They are so soft, thick and will be a delight to wear. I’ll buy this yarn again. I could see it making a really cute stocking cap.
I’ve totally changed my mind and have cast on a cowl with the gorgeous Ol’Yeller yarn Bridget gifted me. This is a first for me. I’m knitting with a dog hair blend! A samoyed. It has a lovely halo. I could spin Fezziks’ hair I bet. Put that on my list okay?
Fezzik is fetching a milk carton ring, by the way. They are his favorite toys. He actually runs when he hears me open a jug of water or milk.
Travel story aside ……
We had dinner with friends last night. They told us a story of a flight they were on a few years back. John, a firefighter Paramedic who worked with Fireman, assisted the flight attendants when a passenger collapsed. Gheesh. They were flying to Mexico and about to leave US airspace. The person who had collapsed, seemed to have fainted. She came to quickly and it turned out she was a dehydrated athlete.
John said the flight attendants gave him the phone to speak to the pilot. The pilot said if they needed to start an IV then they would land the plane at the nearest airport. John felt pretty confident that since she was drinking water by then, she would be fine. He kept his eye on her the whole flight, and all went well. The whole plane full of vacationers was pretty happy not to be delayed.
I would have said, Land the plane if the pilot left it up to me! Do you have a plane story? ONLY good ones please!
