At long last, I am able to return to my rightful place at the head of the Purple Sock Friday cult. After many long months of being unable to find any purple socks, not even for ready money, I struck gold in John Lewis in Milton Keynes yesterday! To make up for the terrible time when I was unable to make my observances, these socks are two
colours of purple (stripy) and over-the-knee, so even more purple sockage per Friday. Hoorah!
Thanks for the sympathy about my absence of wisdom tooth the other day - it's much better now, and last night I made my first foray into not-soft food, at blondeccgirl
's birthday dinner. The highlight of the soft food period was being unable to eat any of the lunch provided at the course I was on (Introduction to PHP) on Wednesday, so I had to go to G&D's* for icecream and a smoothie for lunch ;-)
*George & Davis, Oxford's 'famous' ice cream cafe. No, not a cafe made of ice cream.
In knitting news, I've finished my Rogue
cardigan, and am very pleased with myself. And while buying socks in John Lewis I seem to also have bought yarn, most of which is not yet earmarked for a pattern. I like the pure potential of the yarn before I've decided what to do with it - it could still be anything (well, anything made of fine and fluffy dark red silk-and-mohair and/or dark grey merino aran. Ooh, there's a thought: "and"...). What I should
have bought is scarf yarn for secondhand_rick
, but they didn't have any of the right sort.
