This morning, before I'd managed even a sip of coffee, it suddenly dawned on me that the sock was a knitting rerun. The stitch pattern for the sock is the same one that was used in a cowl I made this winter.
For those who are curious, it's New Canaan. I'm even using similar colors. I don't know why it took me so long to put two and two together. I'm even more amazed I made this connection without one drop of caffeine. Earlier this spring I had a thing for 3 x 1 ribbing. Now this. It makes me wonder what's next.
I've always appreciated peace and quiet in the morning, but I've had to make some adjustments. My son now has a morning ritual of making a smoothie, and I've slowly gotten used to the whir of the blender. I try to encourage self-sufficiency in the kitchen, so I don't say anything about the noise.
He's always experimenting with different fruit combinations. This one caught my eye and is my color inspiration for the week.
A quick update on my post from the other day about The Joining Project and the Mass Ave Bridge. WBUR, one of our local NPR stations, did a story on it this morning. You can listen to it here.
