Not just good news, GREAT NEWS!

So, do you guys remember the Socks For Soldiers that I was working on a while back? Remember?




Well, this weekend I got an email from one of the soldiers who received a pair of my socks along with the legendary photo album. heh heh I was really hoping that they would go to someone who has a sense of humor since I risked life and limb getting some of those pictures....(not really). And they did!! He is a chaplain in the Army in Iraq right now and he has a huge sense of humor. As a matter of fact, he is just huge, period.



They were not small socks, so I was expecting at least a six foot soldier to fit into them........or a rather odd looking short man. Either way..... ;0) Anyhow, here are some of the pics he sent. I laugh every time I look at them. This is him with his assistant/bodyguard. He says she's amazing at her job. It is such a treat finding out where these little bridges across the world end up. And it is an honor and priviledge to be able to meet some of these guys putting their lives on the line every day. Thanks, Chuck, for extending your friendship.

How cool is that! I made a pair for group and those are no small task, since I was use to knitting my size 6.5.
I chose to make the largest size and was curious where they ended up. That was very nice to receive the photos. Thanks for sharing.
