Paulie’s

My DSIL Paul likes his birthday socks– and he says they fit!  Pure luck.  Check out the picture he sent; surely it says love.

Here’s the other part of his pose with his ever-patient wife, DD#1.  If a man will do this for socks, well, he should have more.

Turtlegirl76 has been on my mind recently.  She is such a precise knitter, among other laudatory adjectives.  She actually has the measurements of her family’s feet.  She would never worry about fit through a pair of socks.  She knows!  I bought my favorite sock blockers from her.  I think her grandfather cut them out and she painted them — with measurements for the foot.  So here’s my new plan—

Measure everyone in the family and get Steve to make me one sock blocker for each person so I can use them to adjust the fit as I knit.  Paint each the these festively indicating favorite cuff length and other data.  Hang somewhere to decorate the house when not in use.  A family gallery of sorts.  Maybe, if I can get everyone together, have a paint party and get each person to paint their own.

Of course, this means pressure to produce more socks.  Good thing I have a truckload of sock yarn stash.  But nothing compared to that of Turtlegirl76.

More later–
