This post is intended to house the interests of two very important families of friends, both near and dear to my heart – my knitting family and my ultralight bike packing family.
In the first house ….. the winner is!!!!! ME!! Each New Years I set a goal which is simple and attainable such as learning to make bread or sushi ….things of that nature. This year my goal has been to learn how to knit socks and to give both of my brothers a pair. The picture above is my first and only completed pair of socks which would never fit either of my big footed bros – so I guess I’m the winner of socks #1. Pretty, aren’t they?? These fine socks are made of Opal sock yarn from Sweden, 4 ply fingering yarn on # 2 US needles. It only took me about 80 hours to make these suckers so George and Rikki….. hang tight, your socks are coming!!!
In the second house….. to the interst of all things light and effecient – these Saucony Hattori shoes are IT!!!! Being married to the master mininimalist, Gary, one thinks about these things. I have brought these shoes with me on our trip and not a day goes by that I don’t tell Gary how much I love these shoes, how comfortable they are and as you can see, stylish above all. And, they roll out at an impressive, little, 4.4 ounces – no kidding!!!
And that, folks, is the end of my second post…. until later!!! Patti
