Tøm Tønden -- Stash Bashing (Day 7)

Min første sok! --  My first sock!

     I går aftes blev jeg færdig med den første sok til Spirillen. Juhuu! Den passede ham, og han kunne lide den. Der blev omgående slået op til nummer to. Og så kom katastrofen. Spirillen og jeg havde omhyggeligt delt de tre nøgler restegarn i to dele efter vægt. Der gik lidt mindre end halvdelen til sok nummer et, så jeg slog op og strikkede ca. 5 cm, så løb jeg tør for sort garn. Jeg gik ind til skuffen, hvor jeg havde lagt de andre tre nøgler - de var væk! Kun det flaskegrønne lå på sin plads, og som billedet af sokken viser, var det ikke lige den farve, jeg var ved at løbe tør for.
     Så jeg ryddede jeg op i mine strikkeposer - alle tre; i strikkekurven; på mit skrivebord hvor alle korrekturnoterne ligger i et virvar; i skufferne endnu engang, og i flettekassen som tilfældigvis stod ved siden af bordet. Inde i dagligstuen. ryddede jeg op i kassen med skrive- og maleting. Så kom jeg i tanke om at jeg havde lovet Piraten et navneskilt til hans garderobe i skolen, så jeg trak papirskuffen ud - den eneste skuffe, jeg ikke havde lede efter garnet i, der er nemlig ikke plads - og der på bunden lå mit ur, det har været borte et par uger - siden sidst jeg rydded op faktisk. Det må være gledet ned fra sømmet, det normalt hænger på, og faldet ned under papirerne i skuffen.
     Af orange karton klippede og tegnede jeg et skilt til Piratens garderobe. Så kiggede jeg for tredje gang i skuffen, hvor vi havde lagt garnet - og der var det! Ugleungerne siger at der er bermudatrekanter her i huset som bortfører tingene og spytter dem ud efter et stykke tid. Jeg begynder at tro på det.


My first ever sock is done! Yahoo. It was made for Marsupilami, it is the right size and he likes it. I am happy. I cast on for sock number two and knitted 5 or six centimetres, and then I ran out of black yarn. I went in and looked in the drawer where I placed the other three skeins.  Marsupilami and I split the three left over yarns in equal parts whit a scale - good for his maths ;) - and I placed the second three small skeins in a drawer.

Now only the bottle green one was there, and as the picture shows, I did not use much of this. I looked through all my knitting bags, I have 3 and a basket. No sock yarn - at least not this sock yarn. I cleaned my desk where all the proofreading notes were living their own, wild life. I looked in the box with materials for candy wrapper bags, as it stood under the drawer. I went into the living room, where I went through all my homeschooling equipment, putting all writing and drawing things back where they belonged.

Hmm ... I promised the Pirate a new name tag for his cubicle in school. I went to my paper drawer - the only one I did not turn upside down looking for the yarn, as there's no room for yarn in there. At the bottom of the drawer I found my watch, which went missing last time I cleaned my desk a fortnight ago. I must have pushed it off the pin it hangs on when I'm not wearing it. After making the name tag for the Pirate, I looked for the third time in the drawer, and there the yarn was in it's place.

The Owlets have been telling me about Bermuda triangles swallowing things and disposing them somewhere else or after an unknown amount of time. I begin to believe in them.


  • Så langt er jeg nået. 
  • This is how far I am right now.

  1. Uglemor,

    So glad you found your yarn! You have a Bermuda Triangle and we have a Black Hole. Nothing has ever been known to reappear out of our black hole unfortunately.

    I love the stories that go with your photos!

    1. Ouch Black Holes sounds like really dangerous stuff. I think they visit here as well. But mostly it's just Bermuda Triangles.
      Thank you for commenting
