A note from the socks

Today we have a guest post, in the form of a letter, from the Zoomobile socks. It’s addressed to me, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it none-the-less.

Dear travellingsock,

After a long dry spell, in which the first of our pair was trapped inside the knitting bag, we’re pleased that you’ve finally been working on us. We’re glad that the weather was nice this weekend and you took us outside to work on… You’re deck is lovely. Even though our yarn fell onto the bricks and got moss on it, we forgive you. Feeling the fresh air was worth it.

Watching the Calgary Stampede with you last night was also wonderful. When you got out the beer, we were a little concerned; seriously, knitting a heel flap while drinking? Not your strong suit. Still, you managed to finish more than half of the heel flap, so we’re very pleased. Sock #2 is coming along nicely.

We would appreciated it if you used a row counter once and a while though. We don’t appreciate being poked and prodded while you try to count out what you have and have not finished. It hinders your progress, and we’ve seen you looking longingly at the stash… We would like to be finished as soon as possible, lest you start something else before we’re done. You are prone to that; you have fickle fingers.

We would also appreciate some photographs. We had to endure the teasing as you photographed the Sampler Texture Socks over and over. We feel unloved. Do you not want to share our beauty with your blog readers? We know you’ve been promising them pictures for days, so get us  outside and take some pictures!

We do love the effort you’ve been putting in on us lately though. Giving up your reading time for knitting really means a lot to us. We’re glad you’re so committed to us. We can’t wait to warm your toes this fall.

With love,

The Zoomobiles
