Epiphany



I've been using a definition of an
epiphany from Luci Shaw:

showing, accompanied by light

That is what happens when some-
thing DAWNS on you. The morning
light: his mercies new every morning.

It happened today with orphaned
Socks ~~ capitalize all of that:
ORPHANED SOCKS.
I'm determined.

Even after four sons have left home
( some not completely), I am still
finding their socks, well, one sock
to find the match.

Now with my daughter , the epiphany
( something that dawned on me)
is to just give HER all the orphaned
socks and perhaps the other one will
show up . Then she can feel the
satisfaction of putting them together.

What do you do?

Those who knit: a sock pattern without
using double pointed needles.
Thanks.
One day I will knit a pair.

The movie Gremlins came out when Amber and Davey were in their teens and we watched it, laughing at all the mischeif those little critters got into. Any time a sock came up missing afterward, we jokingly said the Gremlins took it. Maybe you should start looking for Gremlins rather than socks! :D If you really want to knit socks without double pointed needles, you should talk with Amber. She and I both use the magic loop method with one long circular needle; it keeps the Gremlins from absconding with your double points! I still think that they have a secret stash somewhere in my house that holds everything that has gone missing over the past decades: earrings, thimbles, bobbins, Amber's amethyst ring, guitar picks, and of course socks...

That is what I think too!
They don't have feet but seem to.
