One-sock wonder

Late in the week, my friend Aneesha and I met for one of our quarterly dinner/shopping dates - our last one of the year and the perfect opportunity to present her with her Christmas gift.

And even though I was the one who set the date weeks before, I completely forgot about until I was snugged down in bed the night before. As a result, when I got up in the morning, I scrambled to get it all packaged up amid my usual morning rush.

I am not at my best in the morning, so I try to get as much ready the night before - much less chance for disasters... such as this one
That, my friends, is just one sock.... amidst my morning flurry, I must have dropped the other one before I got it in the bag... and totally didn't notice. (In my defense, socks don't make much noise when they hit the floor.)

Of course, Aneesha is a fantastic sport, and she thought the whole thing was hilarious... and just another reason for us to get together sooner, rather than later. Though I think I need to whip up something extra for giving her just half a gift....

Better than realizing you never even knit the other sock ... :-)

Awww- your friend is a great sport. Sounds totally like something I would do.

What Bridget said .....I really thought you were going to say it wasn't knit. Hopefully you DID find it.

It is an awfully pretty sock.

Please tell us you dropped it somewhere in your personal space and not out in the great big WORLD!

I love that photo of your friend proudly holding up her one sock though. That's love. That's friendship. Fantastic. Wishing you lots of happy days out together :)
