I Am a Plain Ole Cup of Joe
But don’t think plain – instead think, uncomplicated
Hunh. Well, I don’t know if I, myself, am a plain ole cup of Joe, and I sure as hell ain’t low maintenance (just ask Dale) but I do prefer plain ole Joe over any fancy-type coffee drinks. Black, no sugar, please. Go ahead and take the quiz, it’s sort of fun.
You want some knitting content? The Feather and Fan socks are done. This is good news as I really didn’t enjoy this cotton yarn. (Don’t ask me what it is, this is the yarn that fell in the pool and the label disintegrated.) It didn’t actually make my hands hurt but it felt stiff and awkward. The pattern, however, I liked very much. It’s from the book Socks Socks Socks edited by Elaine Rowley. Here’s the finished product, being modeled by the Lovely Hannah, the recipient of the socks.
The crossed foot pose has nothing to do with me trying to distract you from the mismatched stripes. It’s just the way she was sitting. Yup, she always sits on the deck with her feet balanced over a pot of petunias. Really. I swear. And, while those mismatched stripes bug me, they don’t bug me nearly as much as they would if these were my socks. Just saying.
