Today we head out for our first “official” reenactment of the season and the whole family is very excited. (You will remember that Calvin Harlow Day at the beginning of the month was a washout. It was, in fact, the only washout in the last 45 days, but it was a washout nevertheless.) My 19th century clothing and cookware and knitting is packed. My cookies, cakes and pies are baked and I am ready for the adventure of Civil War reenacting.
Wendy (hi Wendy!) and I are supposed to be teaching a knitting class over the weekend to our fellow reenactors. I
think hope they want to focus on socks, since that’s what I’m prepared for, but if not, well, we’ll just wing it. Wendy and I make a great team and we’ve done it before.
I promise to tell y’all about it on Monday. And, of course, I’ll have a picture of the traveling sock in the lovely town of Millis. Woo Hoo!
