I was nervous and tense all day yesterday and could not figure out what was happening with me. Then I looked at the calendar. I guess this date and everything that happened then have become so much a part of me that I feel it without being aware of it. Not sure this makes any sense, but there it is.
We spend THAT day sitting up with our two elderly friends, who had two sons working in Twin Towers. We just sat and waited. Thank G-d they both made it home. I was supposed to have an appointment with my midwife, but she called and told me that she heard about what happened when she got to Brooklyn from her night shift at the hospital in Manhattan and was turning around and going right back in, there was bound to be lots of injured… Unfortunately, as we know that did not happen.
Everything seemed real and unreal at the same time. Real because we saw people covered in dust and soot staggering home. Unreal, because things like this just could not be happening…
I wonder how many years it will take for these memories to fade.
On the knitting side of things I figured out another interesting stitch pattern yesterday.
Now I just have to sit down and write up the instructions for it.
Meanwhile my Cloud Socks are growing steadily. I am almost done with the leg on the first one and hope to finish the heel and the gusset today too. Later on I got a double dental appointment for DD 2 and DD 3 – this should be good for at least an hour of knitting time.
While I was going through my stash looking for the that perfect sock yarn I came across a little dress
I started knitting it (scary to say) over a year and a half ago. All the fiddly bits (read increases and separating for sleeves) are done and I was working on the bottom part of it when I stopped. Not sure why. I tried it on this morning on DD #5 and it still fits! No frogging here! I just got to hurry up and finish it!
