      You are the first person EVER to ask that question! My blog was just my name for the longest time. I had wanted to give it its own name for quite a while and figured I’d know when I saw it. One day, cleaning my mother’s garage I found a little sticky note in my grandmother’s handwriting that read: Thrifty Knee Sox. It struck me. Part of my blog focus is intentionally living on a shoestring. At the time I found the sticky note, I was off work for eight weeks WITHOUT pay after breaking my wrist snowboarding and just barely getting by by any means possible. It goes without saying that living thriftily was topmost on my mind. So, I named my blog after the note. Not wanting to be associated with any sports teams however, I changed the spelling of socks. Thanks for asking! ~Heather

    I like your blog.

    That should be obvious at this point, so this is really just an endorsement.

      Wow. I’m a responder slacker. Okay, not really. Thank you so much for your endorsement. Consider your blog mutually endorsed. I would put a smiley or winky emoticon to emphasize my point but…I know how you feel about those.
