Al and Tank have a deep bond. He knows and adores her. It was difficult for her to leave him with us, but we are a cat family and we all knew he’d be best not moved much. Tank does NOT do this to anyone but our family. I love this photo.
I’ve started a sock. I can’t even tell you when the last time I knit a sock was, in this year. This is DIANA a colorway from malabrigo. Al got it for me at an Oklahoma Yarn shop going out of business sale. (always a sad sight) The magic is that it is Dk. Just a tiny bit above fingering and wow it is better on my eyes.
I’ve blamed a lot on my eyes lately. The reason I don’t like golf, one of the many reasons, is that I just can’t see that ball against our cloudy skies …ever. Fireman would say, “Why don’t you know where your ball went?” Because I couldn’t see it!
We were watching a 16 inch softball game the other night killing some time, and I said , ‘You know, I could never catch a ball in softball because I couldn’t see the dang thing” Even a 16 inch Chicago ONLY softball is skycolored , against a Chicago sky, so there you go….can’t see that either.
Also, I can’t see fishing line in the water without a bobber. This drives my dear fishing pal Larry a bit nuts. I ALWAYS want to bobber fish. Hard to do in 60 feet of water…but that’s why!
I’ve decided, again, that the things I use most and are most worth my knit time and enjoyment are socks. I have 3 lovely shawls I’ll never use and I’m not sure anyone would want. But socks, so utilitarian. (Dee are you smiling ?) Also, fingerless do get a lot of use in this area of the world where we have more cold than warm.
This is not to say I won’t finish my log cabin blanket. Surely I will. Just not all in one sitting. (now that’d be a lot of sitting!) Speaking of, I saw a chair in a print ad that has a foamy seat for those who work at a desk seat all day. What a good idea! A butt mattress.
Finally, in rambling, here is the plate I liked most on our drive yesterday:
