I can't believe it! I'd forgotten all about Sockapaloooza because I was so busy getting ready for Cinco de Mayo. So when I opened the front door to check the mailbox and this bright green package fell out, I was doubly excited!
YAY!!! They are awesome! All the way from Anne S. in Houston, Texas, I got:
That's a beautiful pair of socks, plus a postcard from Houston, a keychain from Houston (the kids will fight over that one ;)), and a skein of Socks That Rock--Cobblestone County colorway! OMG, I had read about this yarn, but had no idea till I touched it... oooh...
But on to the socks...
THEY FIT PERFECTLY! See?
And I don't believe that Anne has a blog, so I'll have to email her to hound her for details on the socks. They were made w/ Trekking XXL, according to her tag. They have a nice, even ribbing all the way up. But the heel is the funkiest I've ever seen! And it fits wonderfully! And the toe... It's a gradual (not just on the sides) decrease over like two inches and I think it ends w/o grafting... I need to find this pattern! Check out the cool heel and toes:
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Anne! This was so much fun! It was even cooler to not have seen these socks anywhere before receiving them. :)
And thank you, Alison, for organizing this. And thanks, Ashley, for being a great sock sister!
