Happy Feet!

I'd like to thank Carolyn for my new socks. A while back I wrote a blog about how difficult it is for me to find good socks that fit my size 14 feet. I got some good advice on where to purchase some. However, Carolyn went the extra mile and a half and actually knitted a pair for me.







They feel amazing. I haven't had socks that felt this good since I was a little kid and my grandmother knitted socks for me. Actually, no insult to my dear departed grandmother, but these are better.

In a world filled with tragedy and woe it's pretty neat that someone will do something nice for some guy in the woods who writes a blog. It's not the first time I've received nice things from readers. You guys are the best.

Since these socks feel so amazing it's occurred to me that knitting skills should be elevated in the hierarchy of survival skills. If your feet aren't happy, the rest of you suffers.

Thanks again Carolyn!

  4. After several foot and toe surgeries, I know exactly what you mean! Happy feet make a happy body. Thanks to Carolyn, and thanks for blogging ever day as you do. You, Dizzy, and Hermit Jim are just about the only ones that I follow who seem to do that anymore ~

  6. Those should keep you warm. You can't buy something like that in store.

  7. Keeping your feet toasty will also help your lungs and help to keep you from colds.
