After I ran out of yarn for the Gothic Spire socks, I decided to go with Kate Gilbert's "Marina Piccola". I realized that I had the perfect yarn in my stash - Sweet Georgia's superwash in "Life Aquatic". About halfway through turning the heel, I read on my Sockapalooooza recipient's blog that she, like me, used to be a competitive rower. With the blue colour and the wavy pattern, the socks seemed more perfect than ever. I was happy. I felt a certain peaceful serendipity about the whole thing.
Then, when my joy was at its zenith, tragedy struck. What do you think is possibly, maybe, about to happen?
What do you think are my chances? I'd say, not very good.
PS: Sweet Georgia is on about a year-long hiatus and isn't making any more yarn. I can't find it on eBay. I can't find it on Google. My Obi-Wan hope is a shop in Windsor which, according to one blogger, had some Life Aquatic as of 9 days ago. But all their yarn has been 40% off since then, which lengthens the odds somewhat. They open tomorrow at 9:00 AM Eastern...this should be interesting.
PPS: The suspense is killing me.
PPPS: I'm not doing Sockapalooza 5 next year.
