Earlier this week, I received this email. It was unsolicited, so I guess you might call it “spam”, but I call it “a gift”. And a reminder that there are people (well, bots / hackers) out there like Robin from Blackout Knitting Co Ltd. People who are passionate about their work and their company and their place in the world – easy enough when you are working in “the socks capital of the world”, I know.
Anyway, I am not sure what tipped Robin off to the fact that I might be looking to import sublimation socks, or soccer socks (just because they sound like Dr Seuss would appreciate them). But her enthusiasm for her work is somehow contagious. And I have placed an order – socks for everyone this Christmas!
