My mail just came. There was a package. The return address was from a city my sister lived in–oh, nearly twenty years or so ago. I looked at the name, and thought, both, Hi, Niki! and, huh?

And inside was this gorgeous pair of Koigu handpainted-yarn socks. Made as if she’d measured them to my feet as she’d knitted along. Wow. If I could make everybody’s feet feel like mine feel like right now with these on, nobody would ever again ask why anybody would bother to handknit socks. Wow.

Thank you, Niki!!!

Very pretty socks!! I’m very happy for you! So, um…What size are your feet anyway? 😉

That’s so cool, that the book is up on amazon! I’m going to go check it out. I hope I can knit some lace this year during July, a month that has been notoriously unpleasant the last couple years. Maybe knitting from your book will help me keep a healthy perspective. 🙂

(Gets up and checks her Birkenstocks) 37, now, hey, ’nuff of that. But thanks. Whatever your Julys have been like, I wish a wonderful one for you this year.

Yay for you!

We’ll bury you in handknit socks yet. Hehe! 🙂
