Dear Second Sock,

I understand if you want to harbor animosity toward me because you are not an original. The thing is, I had 2 skeins of the same yarn, and your brother had the luck of the draw. I guess that kind of sucks for you. But is that any reason to take it out on me? I am trying my hardest to knit you and make you beautiful and functional, and if you were for me I would totally knit you in a different pattern than your twin. But you are not for me, and the person I am knitting you for would really like for you and your brother to match. So can you please stop dragging your feet and just knit up faster? I want to start a sweater. It’s the colour of Conch shells and beautifully soft.

Thanks. I knew you would understand.
