Sockapalooza Ends (for me, sort of)

I have my socks! First, pictures.

The socks fit perfectly. Thanks, Anne! They are my very first pair of hand knitted socks.





They are really much more of a red than pink, and look very very awesome, so much so that a mere two dimensional photo could never fully capture the awesomeness.



Anne is from the English town depicted in this super cool banner.



Among the socks and the flag were these fine objects including....



stitch markers!. Another first for me. No more bits of yarn, no sir.



Anyway, I sent out my socks today, but with the spring cleaning daze and all, I forgot to send out the other stuff, hence the "sort of" in the title. Anne's package reminded me. So my sock pal is going to be getting more than one package.

very nice socks! :D and pretty stitch markers :)

The socks look great. I think you'll love wearing hand-knitted socks. And cute stitch markers too!

I'm pretty happy about it. I doubt I'll get around to making my own socks soon (too many people to make for), so having my own hand made socks is a special treat.

yay for well fitting socks from your sock pal! I'm more than just a little bit nervouse that I won't get anything from my sockpal since last I checked the list of finishers definitely wasn't a majority. Cute stitch markers too!
