When bad things happen to good socks...

Remember these?

Well I was on the phone with my mom a couple weeks ago and as we were signing off she said in a lowered voice "Oh... There's something I feel like I should tell you."

This is not really something one wants to hear, and I was wondering what horrible family tragedy had occurred. It turns out that there was a run-in with a monster.

Poor sock! I told my mom to have my sister send the socks back to me - I still have the leftover yarn and will fix it to the best of my ability - although the stripes might not match up quite as perfectly as the first time...

Oh my goodness. It conveys horrific images of sock-eating monsters (which are probably otherwise beloved dogs). The foot is utterly gone! How terrifying for a poor sock!

No! Nooooo!

That picture should have a parental advisory for graphic violence. What happened? Did the kitty get it?

OK, now I get it. Chewed up by the dog. See, the sight of the mutilated sock made my brain not work right!

Thank goodness my dog only eats paper. I think I'd cry. Good luck with the fix.

That is a nightmare that only socks knitters can dream.

Good luck with the repairs. I have great confidance in your abilities.

By the way...I'm the dog o.k.?

Why is it that the beasties only go for the handknit socks? Tragic.

Ouch! My dog has a similar love for mangling hand-knits. She got the first pair of socks I ever knit along with my Fetchings. I feel your mom's pain. :(

Eek! "I'm sorry, Teacher, my dog ate my socks."

Oh no!!! I have a sock-eating dog too, but she generally swallows the thing, so all we get is digested evidence. Yuck! Luckily it's only happened with one handknit sock :( I'm so sorry!!
