Dear Zabet,

I know your birthday is coming soon, and to make good on the birthday goodness I got in San Francisco, I need some input fast. (Yikes! only 20 days...) Can you send me 3 patterns that you would like plus some measurements so I can get this right?

Love,
me

How sad is it that it's more convenient to post to your blog than email me?

Hang on, I gotta get the measuring tape out. ;)

Ok, I found some cool patterns. (Can you tell I like anklet socks?)

Any of those patterns are adorable.

Measurements:

ankle: 11 inches

foot length: 9 inches

widest part of foot (stepping on a ruler): 4 inches

Wow! Those are some great patterns! Now, to see what you get from them... *craftily arching eyebrows*

Can I get the measurement around the ball of your foot? I know you said 4 inches standing on a ruler, but I need the circumference of the widest part of your foot.

9.5 inches around the widest part.

I do like the foot to be snug, so if you knit it to 9 inches it will be fine.

Thank you for sockies!!! As a knitter, I truly appreciate the time involved!

PS - P says, "Tell her she needs to be puttin' up some damn pictures! [pause] Of course, I guess we have't put up any, either." ;) It will probably be May before I get that particular act together!

Elabeth wants me to chastise you for lack of SF photos as well. :)

Apparently, she's on the SNB Leaders list with me! It's a long, funny story. I'll tell you later.
