hold my shark
I got my Sockapalooza socks in the mail yesterday! And they are P-E-R-F-E-C-T! I love them, I love them, I love them. Look how absolutely beautiful!



My sock pal, Jessica from Rose-Kim knits, made them exactly to my tastes -not too tall, and soooo pretty - I love the colorway (purple is my favorite color, after all!). She let me know that they were the crooked cable socks by sockbug and were knit from Wildfoote.


Here they were right out of the package - she did a beautiful job of wrapping them. I've still got the wrapping in my knitting bag -I love the little initial "g", and I'm thinking I might have to sew it onto my bag. Thank you Jessica! They are da bestest socks evah!


They even got the official Abby endorsement!


And in even better sock news, guess who finished their socks? I did! I did! Just gotta kitchener the toes and weave in the ends, and these babies will be winging their away across the country on Monday to make my sock-person's feet very happy!



And I hope she really likes them, because I tried to make them perfection. In fact, I think they're pretty good because part of me totally wishes I had made them for me! I may be heading back to the yarn store to pick up two more balls to make me a pair.


These took two skeins of Cascade Sassy Stripes Superwash. I wanted to pick a superwash sock yarn for wash and wear ease, but this was the first time I'd ever used this particular kind. I give it two thumbs up, though! It has a nice amount of stretch and knits up soft as a dream - should be comfy to wear. I hope she likes em!
