In a further twist of irony, MY SnB was recently featured on the CBS Early Show:
Perhaps it's appropriate that the segment is on knitting and memory. Ah, the knitting! Ah, the memories! Ah!
What's a knitter to do? Knit on, of course. I'm making socks of lamentation in half-mourning hues out of Panda Wool, a yarn I love but which taught me the fear of f-f-felting (CPY is replacing it with Panda Wool Superwash). The pattern is Running With Scissors by Phyll Lagerman, an underappreciated gem for Sockdown! .
See the emerging motif? The pattern only gives right-handed shears, but I'm going to put left-handed shears on the second sock, because knitters can. Plus the new Sock Madness pattern has been released, so I'd better get knitting if I'm to make the cut.
With those bits of knitterly virtuosity and defiance, the quest [brass fanfare!] for a new SnB begins! My desiderata are few – a convenient time, congenial company, and reasonable proximity (= bicycling distance) – suggestions are welcome.
