The Comfort Of Merino: A Brief Tolkien Thursday

tolkien There’s something immensely comforting about merino


Especially when you have twisted your ankle.

 I think, only knitters (and readers) can find something good in a twisted ankle. Time for reading epics. Time for knitting that second sock. I’ve been perusing a stack of old Knitters and some Interweave Knits magazines that I’ve picked up, and had some good giggles over them. I’ll be sharing some of that this Friday and possibly Monday.

    Argh…sorry about the ankle! Sprained ankles really suck. I once managed to sprain mine while helping to load up the van for our week long family vacation. It was a pretty severe sprain, which was all the more sad because at the time I was just walking down the steps, and I didn’t even really misstep or fall–my ankle just turned. Spent the entire vacation sitting with my foot propped up.

  2. Jen replied:

    Oh, and meant to say–the sock looks wonderful! Very warm and comforting.

    It’s always good to find such nice positives in something as bad as a sprained ankle. I kind of want to go sprain my ankle now so I have a valid excuse for just plopping myself into a chair with a good book or my knitting.

    I won’t though. 😉

    You’ve been tagged!

    Using the top 100 yarns on Ravelry (by number of projects), tell the world what you think of the yarns you’ve worked with or would like to use. You get to add comments as desired, and then pass the meme along to five other knitters/crocheters. Link back to the originator and the person who tagged you. That’d be me. 🙂 Links and further details can be found on my blog’s May 3rd post.
