Live Handknits

On Sunday I wore my Something Purple to my MiL’s birthday party. One of the family friends noticed and asked about it. She and I had a nice chat about knitting. She said, “I like to knit just a little bit at night to relax and wind down.”

“Exactly!” I exclaimed.

Then she professed her love for natural fibers and her hatred of acrylics. She also asked me if I knit a gauge [swatch]. She confessed that she often did not. I noted that sometimes I cheated and started a sleeve first to check gauge — she liked that idea. Heh. Wonder if she wants a blog? And a ravelry account?

Today I wore my feather and fan socks with my new Keens. The socks kept me happy all day.

I’m hoping I’ll have another handknit to wear by the end of the week.
