Sandy is having a contest and the prize is two skeins of Lorna Laces Sock yarn in the Gold Hill colorway........thus the evening sky picture. This is the pond across the street from our home. It is home to geese who gently honk at this time of the night. (it always scares the bejeesus out of new puppies.....LOL)
And here is where the sad sock tale beings.......
Once upon a time, there was a 6 sock KAL. The second sock in the series was called Making Waves. Now this was a fun little cable sock that moved along at a nice pace.
They were much loved as they matched the colors of green that I always wear. They were loved so much, that they made the long trek to Rhinebeck with me.....my prized socks, that looked so nice with olive green or Khaki.
Now given that I am of that menopausal age, sometimes I get "hot" feet.......and when that moment strikes, off come the socks, and frequently, they are neatly folded over on themselves and tossed in a corner. Imagine my dismay, when a few days after returning home, I found my pride and joy to be missing. Frantically I made waves and called the hotel........no sign of the socks. Boo Hoo!!
So Norma...........I know you are lining your pages with Gold......heck, you are looking like a regular Golden girl.....but you must admit, it was kismit that Sandy has this sockyarn up as a prize and with just enough time for a pair to be made again for Rhinebeck ;-))
