Red sky in the morning, sailor take a warning!The picture is blurred but this is how the sky was this morning. It is Friday the 13th and being married to a sailor this concerns me too and even though not at high seas I am going to take this warning seriously. So I'll take down my sails and make fast everything.
I used to feel sorry for the people who believed in the bad vibrations of Friday the 13th, but not any more. Not since I came home three years ago on Friday the 13th and found my house flooded (a pipe broke) and the same night dropped my cellular into the dog's water bowl.
All you sock knitters, are you aware of all the magic and beliefs connected to socks? I don't know if these apply universally but at least I try to pay attention to the following...
If one hits one's foot and and gets a cut in a foot and in a sock, nobody is allowed to mend the sock before the foot is healed otherwise...
If one has to fight invisible dangers, one should wear a pair of unmatched socks (that is why my other sock is red and the other one is blue today Friday the 13th).
Small children should never wear matched socks (I'm sure either a knitter invented this out of boredom of knitting two socks alike or it was a good excuse if the other sock of the pair was missing... I tried this but my girls didn't buy it...)
If one gets lost one should turn socks and other wear inside out and one will find the way.
If someone doesn't learn to knit good and fitting socks, this someone is never going to get married. I have told this to my girls too and they haven't bought this one either.
If one wants to get a good night's sleep one should not hang socks on the head side of the bed.
So next time you cast on socks, do it with respect, because you are not handling just a harmless piece of clothing... The list doesn't mention anything about socks that lie around years as ufos, but am sure it is nothing good... at least, hide or cover them today.
Here the Merino singles, all 2 plied and beautiful, photographed on resting on her idol the Koigu. There is 112 m and 16 grams of her. I hope that one day she will be a tiny little purse with a small embroidery on her. The orange skein is 61 m 20 grams of 3plied Merino and the yellow skein on the right in from last spring without any details. If you look carefully you can actually see that it is 2plied. This wool is Australian Merino and bought from www.merinovilla.com. It was very well carded and I have some more coming this way...
I'm not sure if I should have had more respect already yesterday, it being the eve of Friday the 13th because there is a mistake there in the cabling. And since I cleverly cast on for both the same time the same mistake is on both of them. But have decided to ignore it.
In spite of everything, have a good weekend!
