I feel like a duck out of water. Having left Yahoo 360 and its many problems, this is my first post on this blog.
These socks, when completed, will be for a friend. More about that in a future post once "all the pieces" come together. I am using size 2 dp bamboo needles just for a break from the "Magic Loop" method.
The name of the free pattern is Blueberry Waffle Socks. However, I decided to call them "Maine Blueberry Socks" because of my fond memories of blueberry picking as a young girl living in Southern Maine.
Many a time, just a very young girl armed with my glass jar, I would venture into the fields and gather blueberries, eating some along the way. Occasionally, my heavy cache caused me to drop my container, breaking as it landed on the ground. Why not a plastic container? Because most products came in glass jars, and very little plastic, it was my family's way of recycling and keeping the earth green even if they were not aware of it at the time.
Blueberry fields are so beautiful. At one stage of the season, the fields are a fiery red. Blueberry farmers burn their fields every other year to promote growth. The plants return the following year more vigorous than ever.
The layout of this blog will be a "work in progress" for a little while. I'm trying not to feel "growing pains".
