Today was a sad day in Casa Del Gwen. I had to say goodbye to a very beloved pair of handknit socks. My Firestarters. The first Yarnissima pattern I ever did, the only pair of socks I’ve ever done in Socks That Rock, and my second ever pair of socks in fingering weight yarn. It was a sad moment when I looked at the ball of my foot and saw skin. It’s not something I can fix either. It’s a hole, a big one. I guess it’s just time to say goodbye and send them off to sock heaven.
To console myself, I bought clementines, animal crackers, and teddy bear arrowroot cookies. They were all on sale, and I needed something to snack on because I had nothing.
