11/23/2003 Archived Entry: "I knit a sock"

ON A LIGHTER NOTE ... I got a bug that every woman, at some point in her life, should learn to spin, dye yarn, and knit. It was probably a BS notion about finding one's Inner Goddess or something; I can't remember now. Anyway, last winter I was finally able to take classes in all three skills.

I was a total washout at spinning. (Obviously, my inner self isn't that goddess, whoever she may be.) But I can now announce that -- after $120 in classes, $22 in yarn, $5 for dyes, six months of procrastinating, and 25 hours of miserable, shoulder-hunching, eye-squinting labor, I have produced -- a sock.

I'm so proud. ;-)

At this rate I'll soon match the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the Pentagon. By next fall, with luck, you can expect the announcement of sock #2. With more luck, sock 2 might actually match sock 1.
