Yep, that's right. My new cat! :-)
I was on a teleconference when the Mail Lady knocked on the door... The Alpaca Dog jumped up and fiercely announced his presence. I, of course, neglected to mute my phone. Ooops.
Anyway, as soon as the call was over, I went to the door because I figured the cat probably wanted to get out of that box... I opened up the package to find a lovely pair of hand-knit slipper socks, a couple of perfect items to go with them and no cat. :-(
Oh ok I confess... I told Beth that she should let Edgar Allen Poe Cat stay with her because he would miss her.... and frankly Noodle has more than enough cats to keep her occupied with our one Pankcake. ;-)
I do have to tell you that this timing was absolutely perfect! We woke up to another 7 inches of snow on Wednesday morning. So who couldn't use a pair of cosy-hand-knit-socks, hot tea and delicious chocolate on a day like that??
Of course in true Colorado fashion, the blue sky and sun came out and were working hard on turning that snow into water by the time I took this photo. :-)
Just so you know, the socks fit perfectly. :-D
Ambo, it might be time for that intervention you threatened me with so many years ago. ;-)
Anyway, as you know I have recently gotten on the sock-knitting-bandwagon. I have not made any for myself, yet. Of course I've only made one pair so far. So I'm not certain that counts as being "on the wagon," but I can tell you that I have a (secret) second pair in work, a list that includes at least 4 more, a couple of sock pattern books and a growing sock-yarn stash to support a new-found obsession... So I am thrilled to have a pair of hand-knit socks to call my very own. Especially a pair that was made by someone I adore. :-D
And I almost forgot, these socks are hand-knit from hand-spun yarn. Yep, I'm a very lucky girl.
