They're Here!



My Sockapalooza socks arrived in Thursday's mail from my Sock Angel! And aren't they lovely! Check out the great card she included. And also inside the package was a sample bottle of Eucalan in the lavendar scent. I haven't ever used Eucalan before, so it is a wonderful addition. Sheryl (who didn't include blog info) used a pattern from the Rockin Sock Club and Yarn Pirate yarn in the Clamity color. And check out the heels. She made these with short row, garter stitch toes and heels. And not a hole in sight. What a fantastic pair of socks. I thank you very much. And don't forget, she already sent yarn and a pattern for me. This yarn has a very soft, squishy feel to it. I am sure they will be a pleasure to wear this coming winter.


And I've made progress on my aran cardigan! Here is a pic of one of the sleeves. But both are finished. Gee, I suppose I could have rotated the picture while I was reducing the size. Oh, well. This will have to do for now. Come to find out, the body is also finished. Turns out, I just needed to finish one row. I put it down though because of the warm weather. I did have the thought to measure the armhole/sleeves to make sure one fit into the other before cutting the steeks and being forever doomed. That drama, steek cutting, sleeve measuring and all to be saved for the next post! Anxiety abounds.
