Dear Family and Friends

So today was sock washing day which always reminds me of the number of socks I own. Which currently sits at 19 pair with a 20th on the needles. Granted, this isn't really a huge problem and it has the advantage of knowing that none of them will wear out any time soon since each pair only gets worn, on average, once every three weeks. But it is getting a little ridiculous, which means I really need to inflict socks on other people!

So if any of you want socks at some point I need to know how big your feet are. At a minimum that'd be how long they are, but the measurement around the ball would also be helpful. Feel free to leave a comment here, or on facebook if you're reading this there, or send me an e-mail, whatever.

Also... I don't know if this would be fun for anyone but me but I figure I'll bring it up anyway. I was wondering if, while I'm home in December, anyone wants to have a little sock yarn dying get together? If anyone's interested you'd dye your own skein of sock yarn and then at some point after that I'd turn it into a pair of socks for you (or if you're Mom you can do the knitting your own self!) I'd need to order blanks beforehand, but the place I buy those ships pretty darn fast so it isn't like I need to place an order in the next two days or something.

If anyone in Rhode Island wants to do this I'd be totally up for doing something here too.

I'd dye sock yarn with you, but I live far far away from them big square states :)


Hee! And it isn't big and square, it's a large kind of blobby mitten-ish shape.


Let's do it! What fun. I'm in so order me some.

Auntie Beth:

A grand idea! So much fun. I'm all for it. Mostly, I'm all for seeing your smiling face my dear niece!


Sounds like a wonderful idea. Count your cousin, Jennifer in, too!
I know I can handle the dye part but the knitting is way out of my 'talent' area.

Order what you need for me and Jen...then,
let me know how much money I owe you.

Very happy to hear that you'll be here in EC again...it's always great to see you and spend time catching up.

Love you much.
