this year the theme was socks. while i was recovering from hip surgery (rfhs) i went through and catorgorized my yarn and hibernating projects stash. one of the hibernating projects was this...
|yarn: crystal palace panda cotton solid|
|pattern: leaf lace socks - evelyn a clark|
when the lys closed down many years ago, the proprietor had knitted the green sock to show off the yarn and the pattern. my sweet friend fell in love with the sock. unfortunately, there was no green yarn left in that yarn type, so she chose her next favorite color from the yarn that remained. hence, the two different sock colors.
i was a little concerned about the pattern, i thought it was beyond my skill level. in her respectfully drone way, the proprietor advised i just follow the pattern and it would all work out. so i did and it did! to this day, i still hear her voice in my head whenever i start hyper-ventalating about a supposed difficult pattern. i have learned to just followed the pattern and let it work out. the up side is my sweet friend loves the sock and i finished a long hibernating project! double yay!
in further news, this morning marked the passing of this years easter. i started the day with my favorite breakfast, toasted bagel with sliced hard boiled egg...
i used one of the last of the easter eggs to make this delicacy which was very tasty, btw. it made me question why the coloring of hard boiled eggs is done only at easter. why not the rest of the year? new techniques can be experimented with so future easter eggs can be more colorful, artistic, fun! i am seriously considering coloring eggs throughout the year, experimenting with new methods to put to use for future easters. suggestions welcomed! i won't mention that i am thinking of making bagels!
