My Toasty Toes socks arrived on Monday and my secret sock knitter was Julie. I think it’s very cool to have had my socks knit by someone that I’ve actually met and hung out with a number of times. If you’ve never visited her blog, you really should go check it out. Just don’t go over there when you’re hungry because Julie often talks about something yummy that she made for her family to eat.
As you can see, the socks are perfect.
The colors of the yarn are fabulous, the cables are intricate, and the fit is absolutely divine.
I would never knit socks this complex for myself and that makes them all the more special.
Julie went above and beyond the call of duty, though. Not only did I get perfectly fitting socks but I also got an adorable pincushion that she made, a handknit flower petal washcloth, and a skein of custom dyed yarn from Yarntini. Julie also included some tasty treats – homemade pralines (along with the recipe) and some mixed candy, which Dale has already claimed. There was also a very pretty pad of paper and matching pens.
Thanks for being so generous, Julie! And thanks for organizing a fabulous sock swap, Amanda. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this.
