I found the perfect yarn to knit up my Mock Croc socks for Amanda's knitalong:
It is Mountain Colors Hand-Painted Yarn in Mountain Tango colorway. It is 60% superwash wool, 25% mohair, 15% nylon. I chose this lovely variegated green in honor of the crocodile theme. See that lovely little green price tag on the yarn label? We won't talk about that. How in the world do all my sock-knitting-addicted friends finance their habit? Is there something you're not telling me?
Judging by the flood of answers to the current movie line quiz (not!) it looks like more clues are needed. The current line is:
"You are most welcome, even if you are selling something."
The next line is:
"Have a kiss on account."
I will give you an even better clue, my lovelies. That last line was spoken by a character who shares my name. Care to guess now?
Girlie is going on her first Brownie (girl scout) campout this weekend. This will be the first time she has spent the weekend away from me and not been with family. I feel ok about it. She's such a responsible girl and I know she's going to have fun. But I will also feel a lot better when she's back home safely. She'll be back the morning of Mother's day, and the best gift will be to have her back safe and sound. Oh, these bittersweet milestones. It's such a delicate balance of holding on loosely while letting go.
*My love to all*
