Toast My Toes

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.

  1. Great gifts..and homemade pralines?!?!? Wow! Do you have any left (I’m asking because if I got some as a gift, they’d be GONE)? The socks look great – I’m sure Julie’s happy that they fit you so well. 🙂

  2. Sweet! Julie did a nice job for you – and how fun that you both gave AND got some Yartini. too funny.
    I hope that your toes stay nice a cozy this winter.

  3. Those are some really nice socks. The cabling is fabulous – I wouldn’t have thought to try that on Toasty Toes yarn but it looks like it works great. You lucky gal!

  4. Hey. I keep trying to email you and it keeps bouncing back for some reason. I just wanted to say how nice it was to meet you. And thanks for having me at Winebeck! I hope our paths will cross again soon.

  5. What lovely, lovely socks! I haven’t seen a Toasty Toes pair of socks that I wouldn’t be just thrilled to wear! Makes me proud to be part of such a skilled group of knitters!

  6. I wish I were confident enough in my sock-knitting skills to do a swap. Looks like you totally lucked out in getting Julie. I just wanted to reach into my monitor & touch them! You’re right about not visiting her blog though when you’re hungry. I’ve been following her blog for a few months & catch myself drooling!

  7. Oh they are lovely! And the cables make me swoon. You probably didn’t know I had a thing for cables now did you? Divine socks — wear them well Carole!

  8. Those are great socks; somehow I think those colours are so perfect for you and they look comfy cozy and warm too! Sorry for being so late to come and say yay! I love the Yarntini; you will have to make one sexy pair of socks with that yarn.
