They're here, they're here! My Socks are here!
I am so pleased and really have the bestest pal! I had a laundry list of things I did and didn't want (which could have been helpful or irritating, depending on your opinion of things) and Amber did everything I asked for! Wow!
First, the socks. She knit me Beaudelaire (cables and lace, like I wanted) in Lisa Souza Sock! (my go-to sock yarn) in Jonquil (bright variegated colors, no stripes), toe up and with short row heels (check, check!) she literally gave me everything I wanted. How exciting. Want to see them?
How about a close up? A little dark, but effective...
Along with my beautiful socks, Amber also spoiled me with a sock yarn I have been wanting to try for quite some time...Blue Moon Fibers Arts Socks that Rock. She got me a color that "goes with my blog name"...yes, you guessed it, PINK!
Lover's Leap...isn't it beautiful!? This will become something beautifully lacey, I can't wait.
She also included some postcards (I apologize to my pal for not knowing about this tradition until I had sent out the package...next time I will send a postcard!) of her and her friends at their studio. Yes, she has a studio for knitting, designing and hoarding stash...how luxurious!
Thank you so much Amber, you made my very first swap such a joy for me!
