Look what came in the mail today! I literally checked my mail seven times before they finally arrived. I haven't stalked my mailbox like that in a while!
Here's a preview:
Socks for me! A Christmas gift from my friend Carrie at knitbytigs.com. Seriously, are these not the most amazing socks you have ever seen?
You can see other things she has knitted for me on her website as well. I wear that shrug so often I have to make a conscious effort not to wear it, I love it so much.
She knitted 99% of Hazel's wool and still does custom work on an extremely limited basis. She is the hyena knitter of hyena knitters -- as, impossible to get a slot. Seriously, if you ever see any of her stuff up for resale, GRAB IT. You won't be sorry.
But lucky me, these socks were a gift, and what a gift they are. Look!
I'm already fantasizing about yarn for more socks. Do you have any favorite awesome patterns? Link me! I need ideas.
However, I do have a serious problem.
What am I going to do with my feet while these are in the wash? I don't want to take them off. EVER.
Clearly I need more socks.
