What's That About "You can't teach an old dog..."?
Last night I was so annoyed! My internet connection croaked right in the middle of a conversation with a friend. Grrrrr. Internet service, for me, is normally really reliable. It's also as vital as, let's say, air.
I did turn that annoyance into something good. Sitting in my favorite corner of the couch was the start of Mayhem's slippers. Well, slipper, to be accurate. Just one so far. I had gotten as far as the point where I would turn the heel and then set it aside. Yeah, I know. Chickenshit. "I don't know nuthin' 'bout turnin' no heels!"
Guess what? Now I do! Not only did I turn the heel, I also picked up the stitches for the gusset, knitted across to the other side and picked up the stitches on that side.
Do you remember that I chose Fuzzyfeet for a specific reason? I mean besides the fact that Mayhem wanted slippers made by Mom? It was to force (encourage? entice? lead?) me to learn to knit socks. I love seeing everyone else's hand-knit socks. I really, really love the colors of sock yarn posted all over the internet and even in my LYS. Yum! Sock knitting just seems so doggone daunting to me.
Today, not so much.
Outside we have this to look at, and it's our first **Snow Day**!
