SOCK HOP - Day 24
The girls of St. Bartholomew's had their own Doctor McDreamy long before Grey's Anatomy came along.
Oh, there were a few girls who claimed to be Ben Casey fans but we knew they were just pretending. How could you not fall under the blue-eyed blond-haired spell of the gorgeous Richard Chamberlain as Doctor Kildare?
(sigh) I feel like I'm thirteen all over again and burning with jealousy over Yvette Mimieux and her love scenes with Doctor McSurfer over there.
So I go out for the day and come home to find Elizabeth has joined us! Is this great or what? A Knitty-caliber knitting novelist/novelisting knitter! If you scroll down about a week you'll find a link to the wonderful 2-needle sock pattern Elizabeth published in the latest Knitty. (BTW, Elizabeth looks like a younger and even prettier Leslie Caron.)
I finished the cuff on Sirdar Highlander sock #1 Redux today. Plain old stockinette. Clearly this addled brain can't handle the hard stuff right now. I'm wondering if I'm socked out. I've been mooning over Lady Eleanor (you're so right about her, Nancy) and dreaming felty dreams. Not to mention a wee bit of an obsession with fingerless mitts that seems to have taken hold of my imagination. Still, I'd love to finish the second Wool-Ease Red Sprinkles spiral and the Highlanders if at all possible before the month is over. I wouldn't mind writing a book too but first things first.
That's a bowl of steaming hot Cape May Clam Chowder photographed by yours truly this afternoon. I do a pretty nifty job of duplicating it with clam juice, two cans of diced tomatoes, bacon, potatoes, onions, green peppers, chopped clams, bay leaf, and a liberal splash of Tabasco.
Faithful readers of Wendy Knits already know this but just in case you missed it, Lucy has her own cheesecake calendar for 2007! All profits will go toward animal rescue so you might want to check it out with an eye toward holiday gift-giving.
Watch this space, knitters. We have some more Get Felted news on the horizon.
