Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Beautiful sock! Love the new look of the blog, too, but the weather pixie doesn't show properly for me. And hey, that's Wordsworth you're channelling, not Shakespeare.

Keep it up girl- I hear such determination in your writing to keep things afloat and moving forward, and that's a good thing, Martha!

Oh great, now I have to add "poet" to your long list of artistic accomplishments?!?

I'm hoping to get a lot of relaxing knitting done (that would NOT be socks) while traveling to, from and in Mexico; I'll wave when I fly over!

I laughed out loud at the poem! Very funny. And it's a beautiful sock. Best get to work on the second :)


Love the ode. Beautiful sock. Best cure for SSS? CO immediately after kitchenering.
