I stayed up till 2am last night, until Yarnfairy’s candle burned itself out. It seemed the right thing to do, I felt like I could do something in an otherwise powerless situation. While I waited, I knit. Things turned around and the sock pair started looking as I wished it to look.

This morning I ripped out the first cuff (from a few days ago) and reknit it. It appeared the same size as last night’s cuff, but felt tighter (and the patterning was much different, indicating that the tension was somehow different). I wanted them to look mostly the same.

LynnH Pair #134Now I have a pair of socks. A pair that actually looks like a pair. This completes my pair #134 since spring of 2001.

This pair started with my First-Time Toe-Up sock pattern, for the foot. I’m calling this cuff “Sunny Sock Cuff” which uses a slip stitch pattern 4 rows high by 4 stitches wide. At least in this yarn, it is sunny looking. The sky right now is anti-sunny in Lansing, so it felt like a good name. I’m defying nature, but what the heck!

There is so much to do and I’m so overwhelmed I am tempted to act like a child and play rather than working. I have phone calls to make and there is nothing I avoid more efficiently than phone calls. I think I’ll make myself a good cup of tea and step up to the inner grownup… and make those calls.

May you find some sunshine in your day. If it is not in the sky, find a beautiful color and really drink it in.
