Dear Grandma,

Thank you for the wonderful hand knit socks. We all love them so much they have become our Sunday Socks.

Please send Saturday Socks.

Dear Grandma,
I have very cold feet. It’s a medical condition and I might perish if I don’t get some handknit socks quick.
ps -I think that other martha is an impostor….not to be trusted.

I’m working as fast as I can. Actually I don’t know who made those socks. It must have been some other Grandma. Couldn’t have been moi. They look very warm and toasty. So martha 1, and Martha 2, you’ll need to find another Grandma to harrass. But if you want to send chocolates, I may reconsider.

Love, Grandma (?)

don’t forget about me, grandma! i love the color orange. and i’ve got a great sea salt caramel recipe!

wait a minute…Jen, I’ll trade you my socks for your sea salt caramels. I think those cure cold feet too….so I’ve heard.

So when Martha and Jen are finished with their bartering, does that leave me with a pair of socks!??!?!
It is SNOWING here tonight, very cold, especially the feet!
Love to all,

Dear Grandma,

Do you know of any fab patterns for warm climates. We are knitted sock fanciers here in Singapore but there is no need for the toastie types. Seeing that chocolate would melt in the post, would a lap quilt be an appropriate substitute??

From Sunny Singapore,
Where the temperature rarely drops below 90 degrees all year round. ;)

For my grandkids in Singapore, there are a couple free patterns on Click on patterns/free patterns/Most Recent Free Patterns. There’s one called Stroll and one called Chain. Both can be done in a summer weight yarn like Sockotta by Plymouth (45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, 15% nylon). Look for a little nylon for strength, some wool for richness, and cotton for coolness. You also might want to look for a pattern with a separate toe once you’re comfortable with knitting socks.
Gook luck!

Hello Grandma,
It looks like you have your hands full from all the sock requests so I won’t beg a pair, but if you get caught up let me know!
p.s. Don’t worry about me, I’ll just sit here with my feet on the heating vent. No, really I’ll be okay.
