Socks! And some other stuff

Look! I made socks! With my own hands! You can wear them on your feet, except my feet will be in there first so that would be weird. Did I mention I made them? With my hands?

I know some people reading this blog may make socks all the time and may think this is a mere bagatelle, a wisp of nothing. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Lisa and Barb and Michele.) To you I say...get over yourself. I MADE SOCKS!

Er. Don't look at them too close.

In other news: SMALL PERSONS has been reviewed or described in some newspapers and blogs. For example, the Tampa Bay Tribune and The Ellsworth American/Mount Desert Islander . Plus, the lovely and talented Kate Coombs (aka The Book Aunt) and the talented and lovely Rebecca Enzor at Sticky Note Stories. I love them all, with an abiding adoration surpassed only by my LOVE OF SOCKS.

Also, although this has already been all over Twitter and Facebook, congratulations to superagent Kate Schafer Testerman and her husband, Doyce, on the birth yesterday of Sean Douglas Testerman, clearly a work of awe-inspiring genius.

Yay for you, Ellen! Great job! This is perfect sock knitting weather. If you need more sock yarn, come on down the road and visit my stash, I have tons.

I keep asking our Library when your book is coming in. Do you know?

Knit on!

Hey, looks like hand-knit socks in that picture! Very nice. Did you make them? *grin*

The book should be in any second, Michele. I think they ordered it a while ago.

Are those socks? Did you get Martje to make them for you? Where are the thumbholes?

I worship at your well socked feet, Ellen.

Peg who cannot knit but who benefits from people who do

I decided against framing them and am wearing them today. They are extremely warm and comfortable.

On the down side, KZ, there might be one or two unintentional thumb-holes.
