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.)
