The solitary sock
Now this is no ordinary solitary sock. It is not the humble thing looking for its partner in the laundry tub. Oh no not at all. This amazing creation was knitted by my own fair hands after lots of frogging and a few very unladylike words. I now hope to make a matching one and then I shall put them both on and curl up in front of the fire with a nice slushy novel. I have to say that my foray into the world of sock knitting poses a dilemma though. I really should clean the house, wash the windows/floors. hoover the stairs or even tidy my craft room. There is laundry to attend to and I even have a book that I want to read before I give it back to my friend.......... Scrub that last one as I need to make the matching sock to wear when I curl up with that book. One cold foot would be very distracting. Anyway, I can't settle to any of the necessary but tedious tasks while the sock is suffering from loneliness. I will just have to complete the second sock and the housework can wait till tomorrow.
