mail call


When I revealed my pitifully slow sock knitting record, Cookie felt my pain.

Click here to see. Humor me, it's been a long snowy icy week. Just click there.

Lucky for me! Even luckier, she thought it would bother me that the pink socks didn't match exactly in their pinkiness, so I deserved a bonus pair.

Happy feet. (Did you click? try it.)

That is so sweet. And the thank you video is cute!

Cheryl said...

Nice socks! That's a pretty nice thing to do, especially for someone who claims to be a crank. The video deserves an Oscar.

The video is hysterical and what a wonderful gift. I feel the love.

Kay said...

I quite enjoyed that!

Ellen Bloom said...

Hahahahaha! I took a toe-up sock class from Cookie last year in Burbank, CA. She's great!

What a lovely gesture...to send you socks AND the video! That Cookie just cracks me up.

My advice...send your sock yarn to Lynette at Fernwood Woolworks.

Carla said...

Wow you are VERY lucky!

Carole Knits said...

How thoughtful!

Cookie said...

Ellen! I'm not that Cookie! I'm just some random dork who knits socks.

The mismatched socked bothered me. :p

I love the little video. You are so creative and talented... and brave! I would not be outside in sock feet if there was snow.

xo

The video is hilarious and the socks are awesome. Yeah for you and yeah for Cookie!

Mary Lou said...

I didn't know you did video, too! What a hoot. I wonder if I whine about my sock knitting someone will take pity on me? Thanks for a good laugh.

the Lady said...

Wow, what a lucky knitter you are! I want socks! And what a great thank you video! Very funny.

Now you will have some cozy feet. Both the socks and the thank you are wonderful.

Jane said...

Thanks for the video - the socks look great by the way. And thanks for entering my contest - the ice-cream for breakfast idea is the best yet. But tell me - do you make 'snow cones' LOL.

gayle said...

The sweetest things ever - both the sending of the socks and the making of the video!

One look at those socks and Spring Beauties and Siberian Squill jumped into my mind. What a nice reminder that spring will come!

norma said...

Oh, that is JUST EXCELLENT! Cookie is a generous crank. Sort of like Oscar the Grouch. And that video is the best thank you note EVER!

Opal said...
