Well it seems I have the crappiest luck of all. I finished my sockpal socks and sent them out 1 day late (due to puking child), I even sent them priority post so I could track the package, and so she would get them sooner. I have tracked the package and see that she in fact received them, but still I have not heard that they indeed made it to the proper recipient. If that isn't bad enough, I have not heard from my sock pal. No, "Hey, I lopped my finger off and couldn't knit for a while your socks are going to be late.", or "I slipped and fell and couldn't get up", "My dog ate your sock and I had to knit another". Really at this point any explaination would be nice. Did I mention I'm impatient? Really impatient. Or that I'm the type of person who if told to finish and ship out by May 2nd, that I'm going to do everything humanly possible to do that so my sock pal isn't dissapointed, type of person And if something really did come up, like I am in the witness protection program and the mob has found out my alter identity and are after me, I would let my sock pal know! Just sayin' Anywho thought a rant might make me feel better, seeing as how the stuff I ordered to make me feel better has yet either! BAHHHHHHHHH.
Well, a long weekend is coming maybe the extra day might improve my disposition. Maybe. Probably not.
Update: I just heard via e-mail by that my sockpal received her socks. "I got the whole package and I love the socks! I'm sorry I didn't write to you about it but my life is really chaotic right now. The colours are just right for me, the chocolate was eaten immediately and the lamb is on my shelves. Thanks for being such a great sock pal! " Pheeww OK I feel much better, I was thinking my socks were out there on someone else's feet. Best of all she liked the socks. My mood has been restored. Have a great weekend.
Interlude - You know how sometimes, you’ve got these friends, and they totally love that you’re a knitter, and they really think that it’s terrific that you knit, but ...
