best foot forward

A long time ago I met Ali for the first time
and we went to Persephone Books
where we met Kristina and adopted her.

And then I met Val, Emma and Monica,
Tracy, Tess and Penny

And later still I met Nancy, Julie and Sue.

And here they all are,
after lunch on Saturday,
wearing the most beautiful socks
all knitted by Kristina.

This is the very special community
of women who share their lives
through blogs, facebook and twitter.
It is only part of the community
because if you were not there
I wish you could have been.

Tomorrow I want to say more
about our community of bloggers
and what it has achieved
but for now I just want to say

"Thank you, Tracy, for a fabulous day".


  1. There are less feet in my bloglady-socklady photo, I wonder who is missing.....

    I loved reading about how you, Ali and Kristina met. Ali was the first blogger I met too -she is a catalyst.

  2. Wasn't it the most wonderful day? I'm hoping the vibe you all left in my house will make its presence known for a long time. And then when it fades, I will have you all over again!
    (I have your bracelet btw, shall I post it back to you?)

  3. I just feel so lucky that you adopted me and brought me into this wonderful community! K xx

  4. lovely to see you again Alice!

    still smiling about Saturday (and after my Sunday it says a lot!!!)

  5. Sounds as though you all had a wonderful day. How generous of Kristina to have made you all socks.

  6. It really was a lovely day, wasn't it?

    And I am looking forward to your thoughts tomorrow.

    I don't have a blog - and I live far, far away in the middle US, but I DO knit socks, and I DO love to visit your blog everyday. Thank you for sharing with us un-blog muggles. :-)

  8. Thank you so much, I was so curious about who who got together! Kristina sounds like a star. I do like to read about Bloggers meeting up.

  9. I would have sold one or more of my children in order to be there, what a fabulous bunch of women. Am so enjoying seeing all these versions of that sock photo.

  10. it is just the most wonderful thing to be part of your community.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
