The house seems better with the new windows, but every so often one or the other of us is cold. Last Friday night I was in front of the t.v. swaddled in sweats, a wool sweater, a regular blanket and a down blanket, the heat was set at 70 – and I was still cold. Specifically, my nose was cold. Every inhalation was like my nose had turned into a tiny little freezer. It was a new sensation to me.
This is not new to Lloyd, however. Many, many years ago he complained that his nose would get cold when he typed on his computer, so I knit him a nose warmer.
“Lauren, I didn’t know you could knit,” I hear you ask. Well, the answer is, “Yes! I can knit!” I can knit nose warmers, and that is all. I know one kind of stitch, and I can make a very small something with that one stitch, and then I don’t know how to finish it and make it not fall apart. It was very useful for Barbie scarves as a child, though they unraveled quickly. (Once in college I finger-knit a scarf that went all the way around our tour bus. The bus thanked me, but I think it was just being polite.)
Oh. Back to the nose thing. Lloyd was cold last night and when I brought him the nose warmer he said, “I can’t believe you haven’t posted about this yet.”
