  4. Hi Miss Lucy. I hope you had a good holiday.

  5. Now that I have been inspired to knit socks again, thanks largely to your new book and the incredibly easier, faster, painfree techniques, I have become re-acquainted with my sock yarn stash. Most of my sock yarn needs to be wound. Can you recommend any swift/ball winder combinations. I need something that ideally can be stored elsewhere when not in use.


  6. Happy Memorial Day.

    I purchased some wonderful sock yarns on my recent Chicago trip and I have already started perusing your latest book to determine which pattern I want to knit. *sigh* So much yarn, so many ideas, and only 2 hands. What was God thinking?

    I spent a good part of the holiday weekend with your book. Lucy isn’t mentioned ANYWHERE — what were you thinking? (And what is SHE thinking??)

    And I keep forgetting to ask: how did that situation with the LYS that was selling your patterns work out?

  11. Sorry I got here late Lucy, but I hope you had a great Memorial Day too. Please give Wendy a wink for me.

    🙂 firefly and company

    YAHOO! This is only the third thing I’ve won in my whole life. One more Seaweed sock to knit in Amy’s Vintage Office and then on to Sunrise Socks. How exciting!! Can’t wait to get my fingers on these beautiful colors. Thank you so much.

    by the way, I haven’t received an email. I live on a lake in a, rural, wide-place in the road, town in East Texas. Consequently, my ISP is no great shakes. If I haven’t replied to your email in 24 hours after sending could you try again, please please please?
