More socks today! These socks come from a very, very dear customer who is actually a fellow Tumblr and who has “been with me” since the very early days. Indeed, she won a yarn contest way back when and made these most awesome mitts! As you can see, she’s a talented knitter. What you don’t know is that these are her first-ever socks. And she knitted them toe-up! I am in awe. AWE, I tell you! Have you any idea what my first socks looked like? No, of course you don’t and you never will because they were a cuff-down disaster. The two were not remotely the same! It was just embarrassing.
So, three gigantic cheers here. This knitter is going places! And I know the gal who receives these will be blown away as well. Very first socks… pffft. I would be jealous if I weren’t so darned impressed. (These were knitted as an exchange… should we do one at gnarledpaw? What do you think?)
And seriously, lets talk yarn for a moment. Is that beautiful? That, gals and guys, is Black Watch on the delightfully cushy, high-twist Freddy Helix. There are a few in stock in case the your bug is bit.
Three cheers for socks!!! And let me know what you think about doing an knitting exchange project, ok?
