Taffy Stripes Socks, Done!
On a completely non knitting/spinning/fibery note, I have to talk about groundhogs today. I love groundhogs. I don't know why, just that they're cute, fuzzy, and look like something that you could really hug on - right up until it freaks out and rips your head off - this is why I haven't tried hugging on one. There is a ground hog that lives near the park and rec department here and I see him some afternoons as I'm running errands. For some reason they like to munch on weeds next to roads so you can see them when you drive (mostly they do stay out of the road - which is good). I don't think we had groundhogs in the South or if we did, they didn't hang out near the roads the way the Virginia groundhogs do. I love that such a cute animal has its own holiday too and really isn't Groundhog Day the kind of holiday that everyone can celebrate? No matter what your religion, political stance, race, socioeconomic level, or feelings about acrylic yarn, you can get behind Groundhog Day. I mean, seriously, what's not to love about an animal who can do all that and looks cute eating weeds by the roadside?
