when the infants take an interest in the construction of things
especially when those things are warm and comfy
and are given to me
my Wild Rose [aka the Eldest of the Three] who has a B.Sc Hons and was recently awarded her wool classer's stencil
is not content with being able to do clever things with statistics and fling fleeces on tables
and [thanks to instruction by great-grandmother] churn out exquisite tatted lace at machine speed
has now turned her hand to knitting
and discovered a passion for socks.
- unlike me she can actually make two objects that are exactly alike.
the first pair went to her beloved.
i scored the second lot.
i bundled them up with some eucalyptus leaves
and was tempted to sling them in here as well
they said enough was enough.
guess i shall be wearing contrasting socks.
