Sock it to Me

It used to be that Robb was unable to sleep with socks on his feet. It was just one of those things. I don't like pointy objects near my eyes. Robb didn't like wearing socks in bed.

And now, because the messages that his damaged nerves send his brain are so jumbled, Robb is unable to bear the sensation of sheets sliding over his naked feet. He now cannot stand being in bed without socks on.

Thanks goodness we have sock-knitters in our lives! There was a period of time when Robb could only sleep if he was wearing the super-soft alpaca socks Martha made him. Nothing else would do.

How do you like this illustration?
It is by an artist named
Tina Berning.

I found some really soft and comfortable "bed socks" at REI and they seem to work well with the nerve damage that I have too.

I'm hanging my head in shame because I haven't knit a second pair.
