Almost Made to Order

Have you ever seen hand-painted sock blockers? Go to Leggy Creations and check out some of the designs Becky has done on sock blockers.

I recently commented to Becky that I love old fashioned flowers including Lily of the Valley (my favorite flower) and she created these: Lavender and Lilly sock blockers. Then Becky was kind enough to let me know before listing them for sale that she had made them. Yes, they are a splurge. Know what? I deserve a treat right now. And I can use them as wall art, too, when they aren't being used for socks.

More importantly, they made me smile when I saw them.

You're darn right to treat yourself - especially if it puts a smile on your face!

As your faithful co-enabler, I must remind you that any knitblogger worth her salt has to have sock blockers! How else to display your lovely handknit socks to the admiring public?

P.S. A quick scan of my immediate environment fails to reveal any scok blockers. Save me from my un-salt-worthiness and send some enabling back my way ASAP.
