Time for a mid week check in on the knitting and reading . . .…
Interesting title for the post today, yes? See, I never mentioned it here but I offered to knit a pair of socks as a prize offering for Norma’s Red Scarf Project ’08. I had opted to donate money this year rather than overwhelm the Red Scarf people with scarves again. And then, early one morning, I had a flash of
insanity brilliance and thought that perhaps the idea of winning a pair of handknit socks would inspire someone to donate more money to the cause. So I emailed Norma and told her my idea and she eagerly accepted and publicized the prize and hoped for more donations. The winner was blog-free Betty Jean and, according to Norma, she really really wanted to win the socks.
She chose the Dublin Bay pattern and Toasty Toes sock yarn.
They pooled and flashed horribly.
But, for better or worse, they have been sent.
I just hope she’s a fan of pooling and flashing. And I really hope they fit.
