Sandy’s Tam

I finished Sandy’s tam in plenty of time to deliver it to her. She seemed very pleased by it, running off several times to try it on in front of a mirror. She says that she never wears hats, but plans to wear this one.  That makes me happy.

Sandy is our neighbor back in the North Quabbin area of Massachusetts.

She has been a tremendous help to us… giving us a place to stay last spring and this fall. I don’t think she realizes how incredibly grateful we are. I’m going to make a scarf for her that matches the tam.

I probably will try making her a pair of mittens, too, though fingerless gloves might be more practical… she takes care of disabled kids and is constantly putting them into the car, so she needs her dexterity.

Sandy, if you ever read this, let me just say again THANK YOU for everything you’ve done for us. You are the BEST.

First pair of sock-like objects

I’m pleased to say that I am edging ever closer to producing an actual, real, wearable, recognizable pair of socks. I will go further and say that this is not an example of Zeno’s Dichotomy… and I have proof of my progress! I recently finished a pair of socks made from some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. The recipient of these socks has informed me that they can’t be comfortably walked in, since the yarn is so thick it causes pain… so I quickly reassured her that they were intended solely (ahem) to be worn in bed.
