Episode Thirty-Six: Toe Woes

Today's theme is "Honi Soit qui Mal y Pense" which comes to us from a (probably apocryphal) story about King Edward III and the Order of the Garter. A rough translation is "Shame to him who thinks ill of it" but my AP English teacher used it as "Evil will be seen by those who look for it." Actually he may have had a different famous French quote, but I took Spanish so I wouldn't recognize a the real quote if it walked up and shook my hand.


Today we have chapters 12-14.

On my needles and on my son's walls today...

And how are your toes? Hmm?

Does your sunscreen have: formulas that include ingredients — like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or Mexoryl SX — that impede damage from the sun’s longer wavelength UVA rays, a protective effect that is not indicated by a product’s SPF rating.

Herbal Medicine site or the WebMD page or something my sister found on Google.

And some chairty/sock 411 from Jenny M. many thanks. You can also check out Knitting Peace.

Cheers for Store Wars and Weird Al!

And a special thank you to Cindy, the generous Park Slope Blogger (ah, the Motherland).


  1. Hi, Blossom. Thanks for the great 'cast.

    This is the only dang way I learned how to pick up stitches and foil the "gapping hole" eyesore:

    I wish I could donate my slightly fascist baby-sitting talents. Go get some sleep, Sweetness.

    Hi Heather,

    I just started a log cabin baby blanket and ran into the same picking-up-stitches issue. I solved it by picking up 2 strands instead of just one and it looks perfect. So far, I've only done one edge, though, and it's the vertical edge, not the cast-off edge. We'll see how that one goes.



and then you said...
