But...guess what happened. The first day I wear them, I snagged one of them on the corner of the warming drawer of the oven. And it split the stitch and the whole thing...right around the toe...started to unravel. Seriously! I jumped in there with my darning needle and fixed it, but you know how you feel after something so beautiful gets, um, sort of tainted.
But whatever. Life goes on. I'll keep wearing them. And I have another skein of yarn so I can knit these again (insert hysterical laughter here).
Pilot finished his training class last night. His diploma was a 'certificate of attendance.' Um, OK. He's learned a lot and so have we. Now to keep remembering to reinforce it. Right now he's sleeping on top of me so I can't complain too much.
