There was a package at the mailroom for me from Australia. I have known Kathryn now for a number of years. Meeting through a knitting list, we have kept in touch over email. Through her I have gotten to know Margaret.
We have swapped small things, and I, guilt free, occasionally dump excess sock yarn on Margaret since she does an extensive amount of knitting for charity. Raising money by auctioning off socks has always struck me as an excellent method.
Inside the package was a pair of socks. Always thrifty, these were knit out of left overs.
They have stripes of jacquard pattern separating the solid stripes. There are rows scotty dogs and pussy cats with the colors reversing from the tops to the bottoms.
And finally, there is a paw on the heel!
I am hoping that she kept track of the pattern as I think these would be fun for kids socks as well. It won’t be that difficult to turn it into a .pdf file and post it if she has the charts.
Finished McNally’s Dilemma, no surprises and a great reader.
and have moved on to A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie, read by Joan Hickson. A perfect voice for the part of Miss Marple, Ms Hickson recorded this audio book just short of her 90th birthday.
I was getting worried they might have strayed and been impounded by the dog and cat catcher!
