Don’t panic, it was nothing like this!
It all started because I was cleaning off the top of the fridge…
first time in a long time
If you embiggen, you can see evidence of my cool-off strategy. We all know you get hot skiing. Sitting in the snow cools you off! Since knee surgery a few years back, I have a toddler’s sensibilities about falling… I just sit down. Mostly it works well. Trying a 360 degree jumping kick in a leg brace in the park in front of the tae kwon do grandmaster? Yeah, I sat down for that. Going too fast for my rusty skills today? Sat down for that too. Getting back up, when your weight is behind you (or you’re on your behind), and your feet are in front of you, on a slick surface, wearing something meant to glide on said slick surface, and on something of a downhill slant… let’s just say it was a little bit of entertainment.
I have only to do the collar on the Lopi sweater… have picked up the stitches, but am wondering about where to place the corrugated rib… center the gray? center the blue? does it matter?
Shhhh… one sleeve is about 1/2 inch longer than the other (two rounds). I figure I’ll let him try it on and if he doesn’t notice, well that’s fine. And if he does, we’ll see which sleeve is better and I’ll rip the other out.
I did start a cotton baby sweater, Thursday night at a rather dry annual meeting of the Kennebec Historical Society (since I sit on the board, I figured I should go…). The chicken was dry, the guest speaker was dull, but the company was entertaining. The funniest thing?
Leave it to the French… this was at the Calumet Club. If you don’t know about the French, or more specifically, French-Canadian-Americans, they are a rather hardworking, anally neat crowd (I am speaking from familial experience here…). So I’m sure Le Club Calumet figured the expense of these slippers into the costs of refinishing the floors.
