I Got My Socks!
I had a great Sockapalooza pal. She is Amy! I told her that I was going on vacation right after the send-out date, so she didn't need to rush to get my socks done. So what did she do? She sent them out a day early so that they would get here just before I left on vacation. In fact, they arrived on Saturday August 4, a few hours before we left the house. I didn't have time to take pictures before we left, but we're now back so I may be posting again.
She had them packaged nicely, and all wrapped up with a tag, a card, and some extra yarn.
However, I was in such a rush to see the socks that I took it all apart without taking a picture. I especially like the tag with the "pea" yarn.
When I got to the socks, I found that she had picked great yarn in a great color, a great pattern, and had done a great job knitting them. They are Cookie A. 's Twisted Flowers socks made out of Brown Sheep Wildfoote in Mums. It's definitely my kind of color, and they fit perfectly.
What Amy didn't know is that I wear clogs most of the year. So the beautiful patterning on the heel flap will be visible.
I tried to take pictures of these socks on my feet, but my pictures don't do them justice. Here's the best of my attempts:
Thanks Amy! You did a great job!
