More socks! I think at this point I’ve been commissioned to knit for at least half the group. Keeps me productive though.
The first sock I knit most of on the bus ride up to the Bay of Islands. That night we were welcomed onto the Omaha Marae, and we slept in the wharenui (meeting house). We each got a mattress and a sleeping -bag, and we laid them out along the edges of the room.Shoes aren’t worn in any buildings on the marae, so it was definitely a bit chilly. I was delighted to see Erin wearing her circle socks :)
Pattern is Devil’s Snare Socks by Erica Lueder; yarn is Wendy Roam in the colorway Bowness. (view on Rav)
I have a lot of yarn left over…the question is, how much exactly?
All the babies my friends decide to have will have the same cardigan. (This is the third one I’ve made so far.) Socks may differ. This time I chose the color according to what I happened to have in my yarn basket, but I think that blueberry blue looks quite cool with the wooden buttons.
The pattern is here. I always make the size that’s supposed to fit to a 1-3 months old, but evidently it will also fit to a small half year old. The socks are supposed to be the same size, but honestly, I have no idea.
Sorry, Timmy - the circus was cancelled because Jumbo finally rebelled against a life of goading and humiliating servitude, and dashed his slave-master against a stout pole. He took out six clowns on general principle, too. We’re just going to stay inside this summer because of polio anyway.
Don’t you love how your socks match? Mummy laid them out special.
oh my smiling god.
But, enough of the preamble. Now, to the amble.
Today is the day. There is only one thing for today, and that is the destruction of the hated StrexCorp, and freeing our town of Night Vale. We will work no longer. We will worship a Smiling God no longer. We have failed before, we have failed so many times at so many tasks, but at this, we will not fail.
I mean, I really, really, hope that we will not fail.
In any case, we will be devoting all of today’s broadcast to the revolution with no interruptions.
Welcome to Night Vale
