I got home from dinner last night all ho hum and la de dah when SHAZAM! I got the coolest socks ever in the mail!!

These are from the Yarn Maven and they are my make-up socks for Alison's sockapal2za. These socks are comfy and they fit perfectly. None of my friends or family members are knitters, so it is rare and exciting for me to receive a handknitted gift. And, since I am a knitter, I can tell that these socks are awesome! When I make socks they always have some weird bits, a lump in the toe, a gap at the ankle, stuff like that. These socks are flawless! And stretchy! And did I mention that they fit perfectly?

But, best of all, take a look at my lightning bolt...

and his..

A coincidence? I think not.

Thank you, Yarn Maven, for making me feel like a superhero!

the mini med school sounds kinda awesome. and you can furtively knit! what could be better.

First of all, as your recipient sock pal, I can testify that your socks have no weird bits whatsoever. And second, what a bummer that your original pal fell through--if only I'd known I'd have whipped some out for you. I'm glad your make-up pal came through!

Ho hum.
La dee dah.
And, Shazam!

All in one sentence. That's the best thing I've read all week.

Congrats on the marathon. You know, you have to do another one to be called a "marathoner."

All the best,
Bill (Houston Marathon 1999, 2000)
