Every October you'll find me making a pilgrimage to commune with the Weird Sisters in the Land of Green Witches so that I can receive their spells of good knitting. They are lovely, benign and silly Grrls who always send me away refreshed, refocused (a spell that usually doesn't stay with me for long), and rejuvenated. I look forward to my visit every year, but this year, as the Socktoberfest deadline looms large, I need as much of their magic as they're willing to give.
The Land of Green Witches can be a little dangerous because the Witches fly about with abandon. On occasion one will have an accident, but as you may know, Witches are rarely hurt by such incidents.
Witches love pretty houses and the Witch who lives in this little yellow house is one of the prettiest Weird Sisters in all the land. My favorite house, however, is the Pumpkin House.
This year Miss Bugaboo had the scariest pet and it wasn't the bug eyes that got to me...it was the way it tried to run off with my sock! I'm not sure Miss Bugaboo knew the best way to control her pets as she had a pet net at the ready at all times. She isn't the best dressed either, as her hat clashed horribly with her skin. I really question her taste in clothes, pets and spells, too as the sock was so afraid it nearly lost its stitches! Off I went in search of a true friend, a Witch who had my best interest at heart.
It wasn't long before I ran into a Witch who loved what I love,...very GOOD CHOCOLATE. I knew to come armed with the best of the best, something deep, dark, rich, interesting and flavorful. Miss Kookako was so impressed she cast a very strong spell and knit a few extra rows to insure a good outcome. Leaving the Land of Green Witches is always bittersweet, but I felt very good about my chances of finishing the Mystery Sock after visiting with dear true green friends.
