    Just a little note to let you know that I am your new secret pal and I have couple of questions. First, I noticed that you’ve never knitted socks; are you interesting in trying out a pair? Also, what is your favorite thing to knit? I have about half of your first package ready to go, I really hope you enjoy your gifts.
