Happy Dance

Guess what I got in the mail today? Guess! Guess! Guess!

(No, not my Ravely invite. Still 178 ahead of me. Soon!)

My socks!! Already! I am so geeked. My secret knitter is "Lola" from Two Black Sheep. Here is a link to the socks' life story so far.

They fit great! They are warm! They look very well knit! (Toe-up on circulars with short row heels! I will never have another pair knit like this!) Stockinette on the instep and a 3x3 rib on the cuff. The colorway is Pistacio from Cider Moon, and I love how they snuck a little pink and purple in there. The color went into a stripe effect on the cuff - perfect.

(ACK! Arguing with peripherals again. Pictures to follow.)

Thank you, Lola!

(Ok, I gotta take them off. It's 85 degrees in the kitchen at 9pm. Ugh.)

So glad that they fit! That was my biggest worry.

I just posted the final letter I owed you. I'm happy that you like them!

I can tell you have that jumping-up and-down-and-squealing-in-delight sort of happiness! I don't think I've ever felt that way about a pair of socks...but my day will come!

The socks from your pal are beautiful but SO ARE MINE!!!!! I LOVE THEM. My husband said what did you buy today (men!) and I'm wracking my brain as I opened the package and yelled "MY SOCKS ARE HERE". The are so pretty - the color is beautiful and they fit perfectly!!! You couldn't have done better if you tried. Thank you so much Heather! Love, Renee'
