They're Here! They're Here!

A quick trip to the post office this morning netted me this lovely sockapaloooza package from pixeldiva (who has a fabulous blog), all the way from London! She also included hand dyed alpaca/silk yarn and a photo of St Pancras Chambers Clock around the corner from her office, very cool! The socks fit like a glove, and they're knit with Lorna's Laces...one of my favorite sock yarns. I love the way the colors spiral around the leg. These socks were SO worth the wait. Thanks pixeldiva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad you finally got your Sockapaloooza socks! They look so nice and comfy. The extra yarn she sent looks great too - what a nice surprise!

Here it is, mid-July and hot, and your socks are making me want to go put on a pair of wool socks NOW.
