Surprise! Hand-knitted socks by my good friend Kate Dudding! How wonderful! I used to love the socks my mother made for me, so cozy-warm in winter. It has been some years since I've had the luxury of handmade socks, and these are just beautiful with their cheery red color and stripes.
Now how did Kate know my size? That, as it turns out, is quite a story. She searched my blog first for some mention of my shoe size, but no luck. Although it seems I've shared a lot of my life here, apparently I haven't told anyone that I wear a size 7.5 yet.
So Kate dug deeper. She knew Jaime was my daughter-in-law, but could find no contact information for her. So then she saw Connelly & Associates in my sidebar. That was my son's company and Kate knew my brother and other family members were there. So she followed my link and called them. She reached Emily, my niece, who was able to supply her with Jaime's number, and Jaime just happens to know my shoe size.
That is some detective work! Kate, I wonder if you have to do this very often? I think some investigators could use your services!
Thank you, thank you for the lovely socks. I will be trying them out this weekend when the weather is supposed to turn cold again. My toes, however, will be snuggly warm.
