Okay, So this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Walmart Employee: 'Hello 'dis Walmarts, how can I help you?'

Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

Walmart Employee: ?'What you want on the cake?'

Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.

October's Elegance Socks

I just completed October's Elegance Socks from the Sockamania blog. They were designed by AnniDesign, and she offers a different sock each month, free for members of the blog. Anni is very talented and so creative. The yarn that I used was expressly dyed to complement the pattern and exclusively to the PLUS membership. It is truly luscious and spoingy, and I would highly recommend her yarns for anyone yearning to be pampered. I used a Turkish Cast-On for the first time and it has to be the best technique that I discovered this year! Simplicity at its finest!
