I'm generally looking at the ground for treasures when I walk. And "treasures" is a loose term with me...bits of metal stuffs, buttons, marbles, or curious larger, glass "marbles" that Dale is convinced have something to do with the railroad since he's found a number of them when riding along the track. A google search revealed this article of interest.
Friday Dale went hiking and I walked to the post office by myself. I was rewarded with this Chauffeur badge. Didn't know they even existed. The internet was once again a wealth of information, with this site.
I finished my latest pair of socks. I wanted different colored heels and toes, and had a bit of time working out the color changes in the heel. I wanted the red heel much bigger but it was going to be a mess of splices for color changes or carrying the thread along the instep, and I didn't want particularly thick socks. Once again the internet came through...I emailed Kathie after her blog post about not liking the two socks on circulars method and I am now the owner of a perfect pair of Addi needles. They are a little different than the Addi lace needles I'd been using and I finished the toes on these with them.
Now back to outside work, moving plants, and rocks in anticipation of building a sun room addition to the front of our house.
