To Whom It May Concern..

Dear Sir or Madame,

This weekend I competed in the 5th round of Sock Madness.


This was the hardest round yet. Although in my opinion the socks are lovely..the pattern had me pulling my hair out..
Seen here are the lovely cables that go down the heel (a nice touch..but the directions to do said heels were as clear as mud!)


After 3 1/2 hours of sleep and a lucky day off when I thought I had to work...


I finished my socks!

This now puts me in the Final Four..I have won the novice division and must now venture out and compete with the experts.

God help me!


I realize now I have a problem. I want to stop, but I can't. Please send the men in the white coats to get me...I will go peacefully.

Thank you,

Melanie

Way to go Wench!! Seaturtle and I went out to celebrate our single sock completions and your victory with blizzards & fries. :) When you win next round we will invite you!

Didn't they tell you it was a one way street to hell? I guess they should have disclosed that before you started;-) Gotta hang in there now!

I'm glad you liked the socks...it would suck for them to be clear as mud, spend money and yarn...and then you hate them!

You are in the Final Four?!!
Way to go! That is so incredible. Your fingers must be flying.
The socks look excellent btw.

Dude! You so totally rock the socks! I've had the same 2 pairs of socks in my back for weeks now and havn't completed more than a couple inches between them. :-(

Keep up the great work, I'd love to see you win the whole darn thing!

Oh, you say you'll go quietly...but it's a lie an you know it. You'd be kicking and screaming the whole way. Congrats on kicking some round five arse! I think you've actually got an excellent shot at clearing the next round, too. You gotta get psyched, girl. Believe in yourself. Drink a raw egg and go run up some stairs. You're representing all us Wendy's. We were the underdogs. And everybody loves watching the underdog win the big game. You can do it!
