At least, that’s what a friend of my mother’s always used to say. Every winter, she’d wear a hat, heavy gloves, and thick socks…but almost never bothered with a coat. She figured if her hands, feet, and head were all warm, she was doing okay.
As we hit our first real Fall snap out here in sunny California (yes, I know all you East Coast girls are laughing at me, but even though it doesn’t [usually] snow anywhere near San Francisco, we do get some cold snaps out here, all the same) I’m thinking of Cynthia and her warm ends.
It’s at this time of year that I most often think to myself that it would have been smart of me somewhere along the line to learn to knit. Okay, I did learn the basics, once upon a time, but I didn’t stick with it. No, I had to go for more esoteric crafts and leave practical ones like sewing and knitting behind.
I feel quite certain, however, that there are readers of this fine blog who are of a more practical turn of needle and do knit. If so, you may find this article on knitting basic ribbed socks of interest.
And if you feel like thanking me, I’d love a pair in purple.
