Once upon a time, on Halloween night, an evil witch tried to steal a pair of hand knit socks. These socks were knit from Vesper Sock yarn, and therefore, very coveted in the household.
However, as the evil witch tried to make her escape, she was spotted by a young Civil War infantry soldier on guard mount.
He had the evil witch in his sights and ordered her to halt!
Once under arrest, the socks were returned to their rightful owner. The young soldier was proud while the evil witch was disgusted at her capture.
With a salute to his commanding officer, the young private made his way into the night. Proud of his accomplishments, and ready to collect his treats.
Thanks for the compliment on my shawl. 8^)
