Great birthday yesterday. Lance brought me a cake, took me to On the Border for late lunch and gave me a pair of mocha Birkenstocks. I had no idea he had gotten them. I did not think he knew my size. He is so very thoughtful. I am greatful to have him in my life. The sun came out as we were leaving On the Border so we were able to eat cake on the deck. It was a beautiful, perfect afternoon.
About the age thing. I do not feel 73 years old. Those numbers should be reversed. The birthday picture Lance took (which I will never post) does look like a 73 year old woman, but nothing else about my life makes me feel 73. Guess you really can’t judge a book by the cover.
The first purple and teal green sock is finished and fits perfectly. The second sock is in progress. True to form I started another project before finishing the second sock. I am knitting the Februaly Lady sweater using some beautiful purple yarn from the stash. The yarn is Pingouin Confort, 50/40/10, wool/acrylic/mohair and was purchased at a bin sale at Weaving Works in Seattle many years ago.
I am trying not to start yet another project but I have the perfect yarn to knit socks to wear with the mocha birkenstocks. It is Cherry Tree Hill supersock 100% superwash merino in the Java color way. I am going to try to wait for Wendy’s new sock book to find a pattern to use for these socks but I am not sure I can wait until April 14th. I could just start knitting the toes and wait for the book to decide on a pattern.
So much yarn, pleanty of time, so much fun. Life is good.
