…the Sock Speaks…
Stories of Spring

AIEEE! Taking a spin through Cookie A’s new collection, (congratulations on your new website!) got us so Spring Feverish, we had to take a run up the Miracle Mile that is Michigan Ave. and get some sun…

But first the Sock demanded a new Spring colored iPod Shuffle when we
passed the Michigan Ave Apple Store…

Next up, Tiffany’s, where the pastel Spring Jewels
were laid out below tumbling fiberish fluff
amid little white eggs…

Sock offered to go to the Prom
with some suits at Ralph Lauren.

Ralph appears to still be on
an Edward, Duke of Windsor
kick right now.

    We’ll just have to make sure that we don’t show up at the same place together in the same socks! LOL I call mine my Sunshine Socks. They definitely brighten up the gloomiest day!!!

    I’m a lurker generally, but that was so pleasingly funny on a day when laughs were much needed. Thank. Delightful. May I add you to my blogroll? I think one is supposed to ask, but I can’t be sure.

    That sock sure did paint the town. Love the tour. I’ve got to take my knitting out and show it the sights. Have a great weekend Bonne Marie!

    I *love* your yellow sock yarn! Now I want some too, what a lovely spring sock :D

  12. Beth S. says:

    It must be Opal! :-) Opal Magic, I’m thinking, or else the elusive Bumblebee. Very awesome colorway, whatever it is.

    And I really liked your STR pair, too. :-)
