My dearest sockpal,
I’ve been a selfish knitter only thinking of me!me!me!! (hence the whole selfish thing, see how that workS?). Sure, I could say I wanted a clean slate when I started your socks, but who would believe that? I mean, let’s face it, those last few socks I knit weren’t wip’s for long. I’ve been ignoring you, there I said it. Why, you ask? Your feet. I have no concept of what an 11″ foot is. What size is that? I already went over that before, so I’ll stop holding out. Guess what, I got you some yarn. Yarn just for you, in a color only you can have (well, unless someone decides they like it and goes asking for it. I can’t make any guarantees). Want to see?
Isn’t that a sexy yarn? Custom. For you. Two gorgeous hanks of sport merino from Sundara Yarn (aka Purly) in a grey, blue, greeny color. I know I don’t have the right words to describe the colors other than ‘perfect’ and ‘manly’. This was all Purly’s doing, I simply told her what your preferences were and what I had in mind and well she makes me look good. I think this could get me into trouble though, once you go custom can you ever go back? I see a lot more Sundara yarn coming my way, that aran silky merino is calling me. Oh, but this is about you sockpal.
You will love the feel of this yarn, soft is an understatement. Scrumptious would be a better word. Addicting is even better. The whole time I was away this weekend I kept thinking about the yarn and what pattern I would knit with it. As soon as I came back home, I ran in to pet it (stop looking at me that way).
Soon there will be sockapalooza knitting. Soon my pal.
