How to show a sock a good time

In honor of my blog's birthday (it's a year old today!), I took my current sock-in-progress out to celebrate.

We went for a drive. I let it sit in front and pick the music. (It picked Afro Celt Sound System.)

We went and got chai (neither the sock nor I are coffee drinkers). The sock was very well-behaved, and even let the nice old man who said I reminded him of his mother hold it.

We went to a movie. We saw 27 Dresses, which turned out to be funny and sweet if disappointingly predictable, and which had (even for a chick flick) a couple of gaping plot holes. But it was fun. :)

And best of all, we went shopping. I even let the sock pick out some yarn. It picked two skeins of Wildfoote in the symphony colorway.

It was a good time.

Happy blogiversary! I'm glad the sock had such a good time celebrating. Isn't it nice that the sock and you share the same tastes in yarn?

Wow, your blog's birthday is the same as my oldest son! That's so very nice of you to take your sock out. And even buy it some yarn. How come I never thought of that?

What a great looking sock!

Happy Blogiversary! I'm relieved to hear that your sock behaves well in public. Can you imagine the kind of temper tantrum a sock could have? Throwing needles every which way, dropping stitches, climbing into an angora display at the LYS and refusing to come out! Oh, the horrors! If it had done that you might have had to take it home immediately, without stopping long enough to buy yarn.
