Before: Drab Feet

Plain Ole Socks

We've all seen those before and after shots in magazines, trying to convince us that we, too, can lose 100 lbs in two weeks on the Certain Death Diet (all the Hollywood stars swear by it).

Well, that's not what this is. This is soooo much better. What can be better than watching the pounds melt away way faster than is healthy? Hand-knitted socks, of course. And, what's even better is having a brand new pair of them without having done any of the work.

So, look closely at the sad feet in the picture. Feel sorry for them, for they are clad in ancient, store-bought, mystery fiber socks.

But, wait! What's that I see? A package in the mail? Hmmm. Let's see what might be inside, shall we.
