A knit-tag I made ages ago has finally found a home :-D
The Family continues to thrive:
I have been knitting, but not a lot and not very well. These Christmas socks turned out ok though:
And this is a new pair I started for myself, because I need vanilla socks on the needles. Yarn: Miss Babs in Deep Sea Jellyfish, purchased at Fibre Space in Alexandria, Virginia.
And a note on talismans and good-luck charms, or "signaling" if you prefer. I usually wear this when I am flying Delta. It's a 15-year "pin" from Northwest Airlines. Sometimes the crew recognize it. Good things sometimes happen when they do:
This was our gift for the 25th Yarnover; it's a needle gauge. When I was at Fibre Space it was noticed and jealously admired:
This is a good-luck symbol that I purchased in Istanbul. I tried to use it for good luck today when I went to American Rug Laundry, but alas, I did not find anything I liked. I'm in the process of redecorating Boy-child's room. Since I'm in no rush I find no need to purchase anything unless I love it.
Which reminds me. Last time I went to American Rug Laundry I found a very unusual round rug.
I call it the fish bowl. For obvious reasons.
That's it for today. I have new countertops going in this week. Wish me luck!
