Some days, the mail is magic

Look what I found in the mail today!

Now, I'd think these socks were the result of extensive stalking, but the wonderful knitter who sent me these socks claims that this isn't so. Sure, she was busy buying a house and packing, but let's look at the evidence:

  • Yarn: Socks that Rock in Spinel. That is precisely the colourway that I've been lusting after, in the yarn that I've been dying to try. (Yes, I think I'll need to add some to my stash. It has different colours, without overwhelming a textured pattern.)
  • Pattern: Denmark, from Knitting on the Road. I have this book and love this pattern. (I can now vouch for the fact that it makes a comfy pair of socks.)

i think this is pretty definitive. Either she's been stalking me or happens to know my friend who lives near her. It's either that, or she's psychic from a very long way away. In any case, thank you so much, sock pal!


  1. YAY! I'm glad they arrived! Do they fit ok?? I didn't have anyone w/ feet near your size to try them on. =( I must be raising a family of sasquatch as my 10yo has had bigger feet than ALL my sock swap partners!! Anyways, if they need tweeking, LMK and I'll be happy to do it for ya!

  2. They're beautiful! Glad they were just what you wanted.

  3. hey, nannette, I was just about to email you. They actually fit Krista as well as they do me (they stretch a lot around)... I actually kinda need to rip out a bit of the toe to make them shorter. You don't mind, do you?

  4. Wonderful pretty comfy sockies!
