Married to the Sea

I haven’t posted in a few days, as you may have noticed, because I’ve been making people drive me in a giant Northern VA-Charlottesville-Richmond  triangle for friend visits. I wasn’t idle, though. While I was away I whipped out my knitting needles and made a pair of fingerless gloves, something which I used to abhor for not being useful until I realized last winter that they really help while typing in a poorly insulated apartment.

The motto on the gloves, Hold Fast, was a traditional sailing tattoo, a charm or preventative against falling from the rigging. Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m sad that I didn’t replace the word “hold” with the word “type”, since I rarely find myself at sea but am often at a keyboard…
