Has anyone else had weird things happen to them with their mail? I hadn't posted about this a while back, but I had sent a Thank You note to Allena for the beautiful stitch markers that she had sent me. What is weird about this is that she never got the Thank You because it was returned to me weeks later ripped in half in a plastic bag. The plastic bag had a note on it from the US Postal Service apologizing but stating on the note that it wasn't gonna make it to its intended recipient. Really??? Well, I figured that these things happen, so not to worry. Just a fluke!
Well, look at the lovely card that I received. Jackie sent me a lovely card as a Thank You for the sockapalooza socks I made her.
If you look, you can see a hole at the bottom of the envelope (left side of picture). That is where, I am assuming, the stitch markers that she made for me were ripped out! The note inside told me how much she appreciated the socks and how she enclosed stitch markers for me as a small thank you. How thoughtful! I love stitch markers. I use them all the time. Jackie went out of her way to send me some, and they are literally lost in the mail. Quite disappointed with the postal service. I do have to say that her thank you note was quite nice and it makes me feel really good that she really likes and appreciates the socks that I made her.
As I had noted yesterday, I spent my weekend knitting. Here are the progress that I made on DH's socks:
I have just turned finished the gussets on both socks. I had originally started his socks a while back, but was having a hard time deciding on whether or not I liked the pattern. I finally decided on the Retro Rib pattern from IK Winter 2004. I started them on Thursday night and should be done with them tonight or tomorrow. Haven't really decided what night to finish them up. DH should be happy. He wanted socks for his birthday (it was last Friday), so I am just a little late.
Well, I am off to make dinner. I have Rocklin Chicks with Sticks (knitting group) tonight. Really looking forward to that. Need some knitting time with the other chicks!
