I have now completed 2 pairs of socks. The world did not end. It was not a random phenomena.
What’s more: I bought yarn on Friday to start a third pair. I am designing this pair myself and I am hoping it will look like a aran sweater for my feet, only in burgundy.
Squoosh Fiberarts, Ultra Sock, superwash merino. The color is Raison.
In other news, the town I live in was featured in Travel and Leisure magazines as having one the most beautiful town squares in America.
This is no surprise to anyone who lives here and anyone who knows me also knows that I love where I live. I love that it feels like a small town even though it’s surrounded by the rest of Atlanta. I love that the Library is half a block away, that I can walk to the bank, the grocery store, or any number of great restaurants, and that the Marta train will take me most places if my car is out of whack. I love that everyone cares what happens here and that it isn’t such a big place that it’s hard to manage well. And I love the Courthouse square and I’m thrilled that it was noticed.
Of course, I might not be so thrilled in a month or two when tourists start showing up to hang out here instead of going to the World of Coke or the Margaret Mitchell House. When I can’t park in front of my building or get a seat at my restaurant of choice. When the free concerts in the park or the Art Festival are so mobbed it’s better just to stay home. Sigh, then I might as well go brave the crowds at the aquarium or the museum myself.
