I met Wendy of the Rock while doing the NaBloMo blogging challenge last November.
Even though I am enjoying the hottest, driest summer on my back porch, of course she is 'enjoying' winter in her neck of the woods.
I offered to knit her a pair of socks. I have knit this particular pattern at least a dozen times - Cat Bordhi's Tibetan Socks.
I had enough yarn left over to knit another pair for me.
We are twins.
Friends through the blogosphere, and now connected by two pairs of socks from the same skein of yarn.
I wore mine on Monday for the first time - it was dark and rainy and I had a difficult errand to do - a new pair of comfy socks seemed a good way to get through a hard morning.
She messaged me today that her socks had arrived in the mail (two and one half weeks via Canada Post).
She has hers on.
So do I.
There is something satisfying about this connection.
I don't feel so alone.
I have many good friends.
I am happy to have another one.
I hope one day we will meet.
And then our socks can reunite.
Knitting and blogging and friendships.
It doesn't get much better than this.
