    Your father’s Beowulf socks. These are the footwear of a literature scholar. Not as clumsy or as random as a graphic novel; an elegant tale for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the literature scholars were the guardians of story-telling and lore in the Old Republic. Before the dark times . . . before the Empire.
    Hokey socks and ancient writings are no match for a good Kindle at your side, kid.

    @Cap J: I don’t know how you did it, but you managed to out-geek BEOWULF SOCKS. Very impressive!
    @Evelin: If I ever go to the trouble of knitting these, I am definitely keeping them for myself!
