Now that my sockapalooza pal has gotten her stuff, I can finally reveal the grand mystery socks.
And yes, my downstream pal was Ariel
! I had super hard time trying to keep it all on the secret, trying very hard to be discrete, just in case she suspects anything. Yes, there was a reason why I was all hush hush about all this even though it was no super-duper secret. I was trying to stay under the radar, just in case! I actually finished the socks like early July and meanwhile I had to keep my mouth shut – that was a lot harder than I imagined. That was probably the most difficult about this particular swap. It was my first swap thing I ever signed up for, and I’d like to call it a sucess!
As for the “specs” – the pattern is Thirassia. Yes, it’s “en español” but I really only needed the stitch chart… and it was fun yet easy peasy. The yarn used is Sapphire Superwash from Ruby Sapphire Yarns in Vera colorway.
… And other than that, I’ve been cutting out pieces for those zip up sock pouches while procrastinating on buying zippers.
In fact, I really haven’t been knitting lately – as in past few days. But I did finish Amanda
‘s socks for Knittyboard sockswap, but won’t be mailed out until this coming Tuesday when I am able to go to the post office.
And speaking of Ariel and Amanda… those two, along with their crazy kintting group in Boston have a podcast called FiberCult. They’re still relatively new but they’re fun-filled bunch. Please show your support and listen to them! And while I’m at plugging mood, tomorrow (August 17th) is Anne Marie‘s birthday. Please go and wish her a happy happy birthday! …and that concludes this portion of rambling.
