Sockapalootza!

My Sockapalooza box arrived today! My pal, who completely and totally spoiled me rotten, was Tania of knit1frog2.

Holy guacamole, people, look at the goodies!

Lovely sock yarn! Boatloads of Japanese treats (and my current favorite chocolate bar, how did she know)! The Post-It notes are so cute and perfect. Lately, for some reason, I've been obsessed with bird prints and bird motifs. For example, I just bought some of this Joel Dewberry fabric. If I didn't know better, I'd think that Tania had telepathic ability or some kind of direct line into my brain.

But, I know, you want to see the socks. How incredibly perfect are these?

They are Diagonal Rib Socks from Interweave Knits in Socks That Rock in Nodding Violets. So beautiful, that's all I can say. Tania did an amazing job knitting these ... just gorgeous work.

Coincidentally, the June Carter Swirl socks arrived at their destination today as well. I was thrilled to learn that my pal, Sarianna of May Contain Traces of Knits, likes them. Yay for swaps!

Ohhhh, they look so happy on your feet! I'm really glad (and relieved) that they fit!!! And I hope you didn't mind the shortrow toes...it was a pleasure knitting the socks for you--I'm really happy that you like them...

Is that one of your children in the background inching towards the candies? ^_~

I'm considering that Dewberry fabric for a valance in my dining room. What do you think? Is it the right weight for an upholstered cornice?

That is a haul of loot indeed! Excellent swap! I have that fabric dog-eared in my most recent Hancock's catalog - fun!

You little scamp, you got Pocky in the mail! How funny, today I just noticed that our local grocery store has them and felt incredibly special and lucky....it's the little things!

Love your socks, so lovely.

She could have left the socks out and that would still be the best package ever!
