And a picture of Parker just because I want to

I felt a tug at my back at Purlescence (remember, they have book copies) and turned and laughed as someone said, “You know you’re in a yarn store when…”

I was wearing a storebought hoodie sweater with an unusual stitch pattern to it and the two knitters behind me were looking at the hood.  I took the thing off and handed it over to let them try to deconstruct it.

Meantime, the sock photo is overexposed and doesn’t do Dianne’s yarn justice at all. What might better is that Pamela came over to look at it more closely and then just stood there loving how it looked; after a moment of staring at it, she started telling me happy memories from when her kids were growing up that those colors, all those colors together, brought back for her. So perfect. Baking cookies and having the kids decorate them and kids, being kids, pouring all the colors they could into them, all the cheerful joys of blue red yellow pink green you name it.

She has a new grandson, born two days after mine.

She has a son in the service who just arrived home due to injuries.

Hey.  I bought two skeins for the yardage for a shawl, but somehow it demanded to become socks. So I only need the one I had with me.

To be continued.

You never need excuses to post pictures of Parker!

I hope Pamela’s son heals quickly, in all ways. Colors are such a gently connection to our memories – how nice that your socks put a smile on her face.

I couldn’t say it better than Ellen… Random, gratuitous pictures of Parker are always welcome!

It’s already been said, so… Parker is adorable! I do hope your friend’s son makes a complete recovery.

gratuitous pictures of grandsons are always appropriate as far as I’m concerned!! he’s very cute!

Okay, I’ll join the chorus: You never need an excuse to post photos of your grandchild. Or any of the rest of your family, for that matter. But you might get a bit weary if I kept posting pics of my birds.

It’s a gramma’s perogative to post those pictures! Prayers to Pamela and her son.
