As promised, I have a picture of Eddie wearing the socks that I made for him.
I was able to give them to him last Sunday when the Bears played the Chiefs. We now know that the socks work because the Bears won 20-10!!! Hopefully the luck lasts throughout the season and the Bears can make it to the Super Bowl again. I'm not a Bears fan (nor a huge football fan in general), but I figure if he can support my obsessive knitting habit then I can support his team :)
P.S. I have only been on Ravelry for two days, but I absolutely love it!! If only I could organize my entire life this way :) I have also finally found something to make with my Amaizing yarn (SWTC). My name on Ravelry is "abarclay." Check it out!
