Today’s forecast promises snow first, then rain, the roads will turn into ice and will be dangerously slippery later. Even though the main roads will get a coat of sand (I hope) on them, there remains plenty of smaller ones, that won’t get it. I have two weather apps on my phone and I keep checking them at short intervals. It was not such a long time ago, when there were only the forecasts on the radio and tv, I would get them once a day and could live with that information…
You are welcome to have the search box! I must have known the possibility of it and I vaguely remember even looking at it at some point, but I did not dare to put it on the blog…what if someone will look at my old posts? I am not proud of what I wrote a week ago, not to mention about something I wrote two years ago, or (gosh!) 10 years ago. I doubt that I will ever look at the old posts - maybe when I am 80 and won’t write any new ones, I will go and look at them, if they are still out there somewhere. Can’t think of anything that would be worth the search…!!?? (I know, now you wonder why do you write if you feel like this and it beats me too! I guess I cannot stop. Many have gone over to Instagram and have stopped writing, maybe at some point I am left alone in this blogging universe and I will find myself howling… halloo… anyone there… There has got to be other ones too…)
Thank you Auntiemichal for providing links for different rag socks. I had totally forgotten about the helix way of striping and that is certainly something I would like to try with the left-overs (never done it).
I kept knitting the Christmas sock last night - even though I did go and toss around my sock yarn bin and looked at all the other possibilities there. I tried to remind me that knitting the new one, will not feel any different after the first rows are done, than knitting this one, and the handling of the yarns, carrying them along gets easier with time and that I might even learn something if I try to do my best with this sock and patiently finish it. The second cuff is done, I am making my way along further down. If this gets done soon, then comes a tough decision… do I cast on yet for another pair before Christmas Eve or shall I wait for the Eve Cast-on, because I doubt that there is enough time to finish a pair before the 24th. I could knit ankle socks in between but in the middle of the winter it does not feel right.
I really should go now, it is 19th already and the carrots and rutabagas are not turning into casseroles by themselves. Let me just pause for a while, drink another cup of tea and then I will go…
Wool with you,
