Warm feet and words

FO: Jaywalkers, by Grumperina
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett (mouthful!)
Mods: none intentional.

These socks accompanied me on the train from London to Ottawa, around northern Italy and on picnics in Modena, back and forth from home to work over the summer, and back from Ottawa to London. Whee. I'm so happy to have a pair of wearable socks for me! These took me a very long time because they weren't a priority to finish during the summer months while some other things were. I know I have a problem with timing, but in this case, it worked out really well: wool socks just as it is getting cold.

Okay, not such a flattering picture, but it's too dark to take any more so I'll live with it.

Now to the Words of Thursday.

groupuscule
A small political group, esp. a radical or extremist splinter group.
Freq. contemptuous.

~OED

septemfluous
Flowing in seven streams.
~OED

Septemfluous is the sort of word that I should know immediately because of my Latin skillz. Alas, I've lost most of my Latin lately. Note to self: get back on that.
