Perhaps I have been permanently bitten by the sock bug. Here is a photo of sock # 3 and the beginning of it's mate. I included some examples of my failed attempts at sock knitting.... several, in fact, yet one day I may finish them all. I never could get past the "heel turn" before and at long last it is beginning to make sense.
Otherwise, I have been absent from blogging because I am doing a bit of spring sorting and clearing out. I have an extensive vintage chenille collection... many of the beautiful old bedspreads are cutters or in pieces. I have been packaging them in craft-project-sized bundles for my eBay friends and they are flying out of here. A neighbor stopped by before the clear out began and looked at the shelves heaped full to the ceiling.... she said if those shelves fell over on me I would die of "chenilluffocation!"
