My Sockapalooza socks have arrived!

My pal was Brenda! Along with the sock, she sent me real maple syrup from Maine, adorable little notepad (hooray for polka dots!), and a wee bouncy ball (because… no one doesn’t like bouncy balls!). And she wrote me a long, nice note on the Maine postcard. She said she actually read my blog and found out that I never knitted a pair of Jaywalkers so she decided to knit me a pair! How thoughtful of her!

Technically, I “did” knit Jaywalkers. Well… almost “a” Jaywalker (no, not a pair). I just failed miserably. I don’t think I’m making them any time soon – and hey, now I don’t have to. Thanks to my lovely Brenda, now I own a pair!

Now, time to check out the socks. My fancy new socks!

Chris laughed at me because I stood on top of chair to take these pictures – but hey, I wanted to show them off at their full glory! I had to do it! :D This is not only my first pair of Jaywalkers, but also first pair of socks that I own that’s knitted by someone other than myself, and the product of my first swap ever! I’m super thrilled!

Oh and one more thing, I’d like to show off the oh-so-gorgeous picot edged cuff!

I know, very pretty! I love them!

Thank you again Brenda!

  1. Yeah! I’m so glad they arrived and you like them! I hope they fit ok. You’d think it was easy knitting socks for someone else, but I kept worrying that they were too big or too small, depending where I was in process. I tried so hard to match the stripes up, and I was so bummed that the toes aren’t exactly the same, but hopefully that will be hidden in your shoes. Obviously I’m not too anal because I didn’t take them out to redo the toes…
    (And just so you don’t have an accident, it’s not a bouncy ball, it’s a glass marble with the world on it!)

  2. oh so lovely! That yarn works really well with the pattern. lovin’ it
