In My Mailbox!

Today -- after working, teaching a knitting class, grocery shopping, getting my car's oil changed, and setting the TiVo to record Lost -- I popped out to pick up the mail.  Typically mail is nona's least favorite chore.  Since we're friends, let me tell you -- sometimes I only go through the mail once a week, letting it pile up in the garage.  Not this week, not with Sockapal-2-za socks flying through the mail.  Today was my lucky day.  Shall we go through the unwrapping together?

Did you notice the wrapping paper matched my chair?

Hey, I recognize these socks and the label!  What a kick, I just saw these a few days ago on My Escape from the Boys!  Many, many, many Thank Yous to Jackie for knitting these wonderful socks.  I love everything about them from the yarn, to the color, to the pattern, to the fit, to the detailing, to the superb craftsmanship -- oops craftswomanship.  These socks will be treasured and worn often!

nona's feet are very happy!

Crack me up...I LOVE mail. I am so unhappy on those holiday mondays when you don't get mail! I hardly even LET anyone else get it out of the box!

I am your opposite, nona ... I just love checking mailbox ... both real ones and internet ones! I can say I am a bit obsessed ... LOL!
Lovely socks you got there!

Oh, Nona - you are way too nice! I'm really gald you like them - I was a little nervous using the variegated yarn. They look great on you, too!!
