the curious incident of the tiny socks
September 27, 2011 § 5 Comments
Yesterday I started knitting a pair of tiny socks for a friend who is expecting her first baby. Today I finished them, and got a message to say that she is in labour AT THIS VERY MOMENT. I am now feeling strangely superstitious about the power of my needles – though probably the whole thing has more to do with the last-minute-ness of my knitting than any kind of birth-inducing socky magic.
