Pablo Neruda Was Right

I know you've been on pins and needles the last 24 hours hypothesizing on the conclusion of The Grand Experiment.  Well my anxious friends, all I can say is, Pablo Neruda was right.   Today I woke up bright and early, put the Classic Sock -- knit cuff to toe -- on my right foot and the Eastern Sock -- knit toe to cuff -- on my left.  I wore clogs, I wore shoes, I sat at my desk, I ran errands, I cleaned the bathroom, I walked around in my stocking feet, I even visited my LYS to show them off.  Well wouldn't you know, there was no damn difference -- both wonderful.  So to quote Neruda in "Ode to My Socks"

The moral
of my ode is this:
beauty is twice
and what is good is doubly
when it is a matter of two socks
made of wool
in winter.

For all the pictures check out The Grand Experiment Photo Spread.  While nona was showing off her socks this afternoon, she picked up some more Julia yarn for her next project.  What do you suppose nona is making?  Two clues: 1.  Not socks and 2. Think about my recent posts and be observant.  Perhaps that was really 3 clues?
