My Knitting Mojo Might Be Back!

I've been complaining to my Ravelry buddy about losing my sock knitting mojo. I haven't knit a sock since before my Dad died and that was two months ago. That's not like me! She had been dropping hints for some time about what my favorite flowers were, what my favorite colors were, etc. She's a clever one, that girl is! I told her that I loved daisies and that we had daisies and pink roses for our flowers at our wedding - almost 25 years ago! She took note and started painting a sock blank for me. I went out to the mailbox this morning and this is what I found..

I was so excited I couldn't wait to get into the house to open it. A package from her is always a big surprise and so much fun! Oh - I forgot - she also enclosed some stitch markers and I need to get some pictures of those too. They are cute!
When R came down stairs, I showed it to her and she said, "How on earth are you going to ravel that to knit it?" I agreed. It's almost too pretty to mess with!
And which end do I start with? Do I want the bigger daisy at the toes or at the cuff?

So many questions to be answered! At least the old mojo is back and I am finally thinking about knitting socks again. All is slowly getting right with my little world again! Thank you so much! You have made my week!
