My friend Wendy stopped by today, surprising me with roses to make next week come easier.Â She was my daughters’ girls’ camp director back in the day (and I was always grateful she did the volunteering for that so I didn’t have to.Â Brave soul.)Â Thank you, Wendy!
Then the mail came.Â Two boxes.Â One from Germany. The other–Rookies HQ Games and Cards? What IS this?
You ordered it, Mom!
I did not!
I gave it a monocle from the other box to help it squint better at those pathology slides.
I had a favorite pair of Holz and Stein knitting needles that disappeared in Santa Rosa last year, the 5.5mm ones I’d used to knit every shawl in my book that was done in that size needle.Â Lisa Souza recently sent me this Ruby baby alpaca laceweight, and a large part of me wanted to again have dedicated Holz and Steins just for it and then to use forever after for size 3.5mm projects.Â (This particular wood was a special edition that didn’t come in the larger size.) I’ve spent several weeks in anticipation of being able to put the two together and to work, while my needles were being custom made and shipped, and now I can!
But in the meantime, in the occasional contest for most unusual use of a knitting needle, I’d say using the cable part as a monocle for a stuffed leukocyte…yeah, that’s getting up there, wouldn’t you say?
