I definitely got a little weepy I was so touched that she was nice enough to send a little something for my friend's baby. She makes them herself and sells them in her shop if you need to get a pair for any little ones you know. I can't wait to put them on Allison's little feet.
Then I open these. OMG! LOVE THEM!
Apparently that smallish skein is the leftovers from these beauties. She actually re-hanked the yarn instead of sending a little ball - that totally threw me - I though she'd bought an itty bitty skein of yarn. ;) She also, unlike yours truly, remembered to take a picture of the itty bitty skein - it's a lot of yarn for leftovers. You see why I was confused. Right?
I LOVE my socks. See this is why these swaps are cool - they force you out of your box. I probably wouldn't have picked up this skein of yarn. But I love these socks just the same. It occurred to me as I was taking the pictures that I'll might even wear these socks more than some of the other hand knit socks in my drawer because of the colors.
The colors are really great - worked up - I still have doubts about the skein - it looks a little muddy. The fit is positively fantastic! I'm awed by the ability of people to get it perfect without my feet - when I've got my feet right here and I screw it up every time!
Thank you Johanna my socks are awesome & I will wear them to death making the little skein a very useful thing to have. ;)
