The 14Th of March my second granddaughter was baptized in our church which is one of the very old Danish churches. The font is from the 11Th century. I come there often. I work there as a cantor, occasionally, and I have been a member of the church choir for ten years.
The little girl wore the dress her mother had worn in 1980. Her mother had sewn it. I was asked to knit the child a pair of socks. For such a special occasion I turned towards Nancy Bush´s : Knitting Vintage Socks. The pattern Infant´s Fancy Silk Sock is from 1909. The four-row lace pattern twists a bit to the right. Perfect for small chubby legs, they do not wrinkle. And I experienced once again that the vintage socks are not only lovely but turn out to be very serviceable.
The present was The Pi as a blanket worked in lavender Shetland wool.
Later that day when I opened Google I realized that it happened to be Pi-day. And I was even more pleased with my gift.
