Dear Class 2i

Your "blog" on sock pattern is very funny. I loved reading it. it starts with this great colorfull picture and all your very good ways to describe your patterns. Some of you had some really creative ideas to describe patterns like Per or Tannmay. But all of them are really good! I'm sure you had a lot of fun. Urs May (Chris's dad)
