Hooray for my sockpal Gill!! Look what I got in the mail...
lovely lovely socks!! The rest of the skein, a skein
of Rowan Kid Silk Haze and Cadbury eggs!!
These are the most FABulous socks ever!! I just can't get over all of the work that went into them...do you see the beads? There are cutie beads carefully knitted into the upper portion!!! My picture doesn't do them justice, I'm sorry...but, they are so soft and comfy. I squished them all of the way home from my mailbox. My friend Shug-D can attest to that fact too. Squish squish squish, all of the way home!
Gill is from a town in the UK called Towcester (pronounced "toaster" for those of us in the US) and it just really blows my mind that I've received socks all of the way from there! How much fun is THAT?! I go to the British Pantry here all of the time, and I always go and look at the Salad Cream wondering if it really IS that good. I ultimately end up leaving without it, but get steak and vegetable pasties and some banger rolls instead.
Gill, I know you're out there and I don't know how to thank you!! I absolutely adore them and really appreciate every minute you put into them! The pretty skein of Kid Silk haze has a lot of friends to hang out with...I have 7 other skeins in various colors that I haven't yet done anything with, and when they saw this one, they welcomed him with open arms! The Cadbury eggs are SOOO good, I'm trying really hard not to eat them all...haha!
I thought I was going to have to walk up to the main street tomorrow AM to catch the bus (my car is in the shop -- sigh. Things come in 3's right? I hope this makes three.) so I was going to hold off wearing them since it's raining here and my feet would most likely get wet. It turns out, I'll have a ride tomorrow to work so I'm going to wear them with some mule-type shoes so people can see them from the back. I then can't wait to show them the upper part!
they fit great! woohoo!!
(um, and no my foot is not up on the table
it's on a chair...)
With my car conking out, I was kind of bummed. This package really made my day!! I don't even care that it's been raining all weekend now! ^_^ Thanks again Gill!!
