Scattered in spring
The Sewing Lawyer can't even use gardening as an excuse for her absence from this blog since DH is the gardener around here. He's very good at it! (More pictures here.)
What are the odds of that happening? Apparently 100%.
However, this delightful sock is emerging. I took a day off work a week ago to learn sock-knitting from one of the masters (mistresses?) - Cat Bordhi. She's a knitting genius.
Knitting a sock from the toe up, sculpting it without seams or even picking up stitches into this astonishing 3 dimensional shape, reminds me of making a shirt with every seam perfectly felled, no raw edges anywhere, entirely by machine.
And for those of you who are contemplating unsubscribing to my blog in disgust at finding (again) no news of actual sewing, I promise you the machines have been in use today also. Please don't go just yet!!!
