Ken and Dani meet two of their heroes.

Well, I managed to get a pair of worsted weight socks done in time for Wizard World Con in Louisville. I was trying to knit some nice socks out of sock weight for Matt Smith, who is known for having a love of unusual socks. I had to give up on the sock yarn and switch to worsted. The plan is to finish the better socks and mail them to him. I think he’ll like the socks made from Katia Darling much more than the ones I had to speed knit in worsted. But the real story here is not about socks, it’s about OMG MATT SMITH AND KAREN GILLAN!!!! Ahem. And yes, I said, “Hello, sweetie!” even though I’m sure they heard that line 540 times that day at least. Big “thank you!” to both of them for coming to town and working their tails off meeting so many fans. They must both have been exhausted by the time it was all over.
