Eat your vegetables
This is our friend who rewired the plug on my mom's iron for me. It's a really good iron, one of the old-fashioned kind that's nice and heavy, so it flattens wrinkle on the first try.
These are the socks I knit him. He picked the yarn out of the basket, but I don't think he expected them to come out like this. I didn't. It's KnitPicks merino sock yarn, in the colorway "Daffodils," which I think is more reminiscent of mixed frozen peas-and-carrots, but that's OK. Either one works.
Mornings like today, I wish there were a Bagel Fairy with a big wicker basket that flies through the city and leaves fresh, warm bagels for good people and stale Wonder bread for bad people. And I wish the Bagel Fairy had a big talking coffeepot for a sidekick, full of nice hot coffee.
I think all we have are cereal trolls.
