I joined a Soctberfest on Ravelry! And it is perfect timing. I have the yarn . I have the needles and I am almost finished with the doll. I am working on her head. the body is done! Pictures will come later. If you are on Ravelry you can click on this blog title to join up.
Maybe I need to do a sock movie-something sock noire? Is that how you spell noire?
Gratuitous hand crank picture.....

shoe movie

Put on the left shoe first
it is less painful than the right.
Then, try to keep the finger-bony protrusion-
from getting mashed between the heel and the shoe as
it slides into the snug heel cup.
Snug is better:
better to absorb the impact of each step as it follows.
Both shoes are laced now.
Stand and balance,
assess & measure the degree of discomfort and
make the judgement. It is tolerable.

too much spare time?

ride home


We will be driving out east today but I have done one thread and I am ready to do another upon our return.
I am shipping Carolina Crossroads to Val to un-sew! and then have it quilted by Kathy. It is in a box-just needs to go to the post office...
I will be adding arms to my doll who now has a possible new owner-a friend's daughter who shall remain secret until I have finished the aforementioned doll. I am always inspired to finish something when I think of giving it away. I rarely sell my stuff, but I get motivated by the thought of giving it to someone who will get pleasure from it.
And while I am on the subject of giving-I did make a small donation to the democratic candidate....
edit to add: I machine quilted the quilt and it was a disaster. Un sewing means to take out all of that mess so it can be done by some one who knows what they are doing.
The doll has two legs and ten toes..and maybe tomorrow-arms...
