So after I finished re-organizing the cat hairball collection, I accomplished this:
Thank you for thinking that medal might be mine. But, there's days when going from the bed to the couch is marathon enough for me.
Medal was earned by a niece who ran the Boston Marathon. under the awful conditions of the nor'easter on Monday.
We'd been following the weather vs the Marathon stories
and by the time the race went off, the worst of the nor'easter had passed through the area. But, it was still rainy, windy and cold. Bravo to anyone who even attempted to run in it. And a huge, "I'm proud of you!" goes out to my niece.
The train ride to and from Boston and staying indoors because of the terrible weather, however, provided plenty of knitting time for me.
Everytime I look at the yarn, I think of the old joke:
"What's black and white and red all over?"
"A newspaper." BWAH HA HA HA
Therefore, hear ye, hear ye, henceforth this new sock will be called
The Tabloid Sock.
Yarns being used:
Red cuff is regia /black and white yarn is koigu
