RPM is heading over to Frog Pond. For the life of me, I just can't seem to figure out what size socks should be for my feet. I cast on for a large, thinking that's what my feet really are (shoe size 8.5-9, depending on manufacturer). I was loving how the colors was swirling with the swirly stitches, but then I went and tried it on. Totally roomy. Totally bad for a sock. So, after an appropriate period of boo-hooing, I'll be frogging this one and starting from scratch. Oh well, I guess it's all part of the learning process.
Betcha I'm gonna wind up with pooling next time around. Sigh...
In other knitting news, I restarted Dublin Bay with smaller needles. Just a half inch cuff so far. Too soon to tell if these are going to be OK, but we'll see. Pictures to come when I've got little leg to show you.
Tuesday was another meeting with the Vermont Senate Appropriations Committee. Jim was originally going to call in, but they he heard that the VVMML Museum Board President, Ron Crisman, had be working the Statehouse over the last couple of weeks he decided to show up--in period attire--to present our case. I'm happy to report that the meeting went fairly well for us. The sentiment in the building seemed to lean towards the 2nd Vermont remaining as custodians of the gun. There were a number of reporters covering the event and yesterday there were articles in the Brattleboro Reformer and Times Argus. Next time I'll tell you exactly how the meeting started (I need Jim to tell me exactly what he and Ron said), but for now I'll just say that it couldn't have gotten off to a better start for us!
I'll leave you this evening with this picture of a poster I've been seeing on the trains and subway. It's for the new casino that's been opened at Yonkers Raceway.
Is it just me, or is there something very odd and disturbing about this?
