First, last Wednesday, the Phillies won the World Series! Then, seven days later, we make history and elect Barack Obama President of the United States of America! Elizabeth and I lent our Helpful Paws (and cell phones) to help Virginia get out the vote for Obama… woohooo!!
But, in the middle, Emily ran the New York City Marathon! Her first! So, since I couldn’t be there along the route, cheering her on, I decided to send her a congratulatory present. It’s not every day you run 26 miles!
The socks are made with Tofutsis, which contains some kind of wacky crustacean shell that’s supposed to be like wicking. This batch was neat because it went from a looser thread to a tighter-wound one. I like that they look like the classic, cozy L.L. Bean socks. My first real pair.
The note card is left over from Crafty Bastards two years ago… made with the Gocco and some clip art Laura and I found in some book somewhere.
