Another Week, Another Party
Every year for quite awhile My mother and I have hosted a "Robert Burns Birthday" party. Mom makes her fantastic shortbread, we make scotch eggs, coll, potted salmon,bannies, drink good beer, have people bring us decent scotch, etc.
This year, as a talking point, I brought out the 2 halves of the big ball of finger-knitting. This happy couple are the McQuerys, she's an author, he's a goofball. People couldn't get over that the balls were solid, and that I had been working on this project nearly 10 years.
The image with 3 balls in it shows how much I got finished during residency- about 650 feet, about a 1/4 of what I had left to make. Got some tv time ahead...
