Socks for me!!
Not that long ago, my sock pal e-mailed me to let me know she had finished my socks. I tried remaining calm while I waited patiently (ok, we all know that's not true. I stalked my mailbox). After returning from work on Friday, I found a notice that a package was waiting for me at the post office. I begged my mother to pick it up on Saturday (since I was working again). I may have even used a look my kids use on me when they want something.
I came home from work, barely able to breath from excitement, and there was my package. I ripped it open, and found the most perfect socks. I tried them on and I was deeply in love:
Look at the lovely colors. The perfect fit. The beautiful pattern.
These were sooo worth the wait!! Traci from Virginia did a superb job. She finished them while taking 6 classes (!!), and included some extra treats:
A special magic towel and koolaid for each of my boys, plus stitchmarkers she made for me. I just realized they are hard to see, so I'll post a close-up picture next time. The stone is a pink-tiger eye and I love the little hearts. And they are the perfect size to use with my sockknitting.
Thank you so much Traci. I love the socks!! This was my first experience with someone else knitting me socks and I will admit that I teared up upon seeing them. I will wear them alot! And thank you to Alison for all the time you put into sockspaltwoza!
