To the knitter of the cute ribbed ankle socks lovingly made from Cascade Fixation which look as if they had never been worn or washed and feature a pretty slipped stitch heal an a perfect gusset with nary a whole… Thank you!

Selma is now the proud owner of her second pair of hand-knit socks from the local thrift store, for $1.50. I can’t imagine who would abandon this pair (did you think you were making them for yourself and they turned out a little small?)

My worst fear is that they were a gift for an ungrateful niece. If that is the case, don’t worry. They are now being worn and washed with care. We are grateful and your handwork is now appreciated.

I will continue to be on the lookout for abandoned handmade items. Here’s hoping the next pair will be in my size!

Are these your socks?
