Don't you think that there isn't anything nicer than a lovely gal greeting you in an unknown kitchen, with pen in hand, asking you what it is you'd like to eat for lunch, or to snack on, or to sip on?
In my case I replied, "Oh, I'll have what everyone else is having," and in her case she said: "Give it time, my girl, give it time, and soon you'll be putting in special orders." (I told her "No way.")
So today, after four days of the same action, she asked me what I wanted, and I told her I wanted nachos.
They didn't come, but I did get a burrito, instead.
I'll be back to regular posting in another few days.
BTW: I want to knit some size 11 men's socks in something other than plain stockinette, but nothing too, too. Any ideas? (They would be for the guy who is responsible for all the styling in this shoot and I can't tell you how wonderful he is. I just don't see lots of cables or ribbing, or anything too precious. He needs some nice, manly socks, but just not plain stockinette. I initially proposed cashmere, but they won't hold up. I'm thinking a nice silk/wool blend, or a tweedy wool with a bit of nylon that will do very nicely. I just need an idea that will pep his socks up a bit.)
I need to go to sleep. Meantime, I'll be dreaming of picking up the needles again. The person who comments with an idea that I can go with will receive a whole bag (about 10 balls) and another two balls of RYC Soft Tweed in a Pink color (can't remember the name, but it might be "Bramble").
Just give me an idea I can go with and the bag and two balls will be yours. I'm spent, and I need your brain(s). (The yarn will work with one of the patterns featured in the you-know.)
Wow. I've never held a contest before. I wonder if I need some sort of lawyer, or somethin'.
EDITED TO ADD: I am closing comments. I have chosen a winner and will be contacting her. More on the sock pattern later!
