I don't think this will turn into a knitting blog, but I realize that this makes two different knitting projects in about a week! To all you non-knitters out there: sorry about that. Bear with me. Surely I will start to focus on something else again, shortly.
As it is, the bobble project is finished, but I can't find enough of the same metal buttons to line one edge of it, as required. You need something like 20 of them, and most stores only have 6 or 8 of the same kind, if you're lucky! (hello, internet!) So it looks as if I'll be posting yet a third knitting entry here shortly. Meanwhile. . . .
Found: one Norwegian-style sock I've been carting around with me for probably 5 years.
In search of: a toe and a matching mate.
We're working on it, as you see.
