They arrived my Sockapalooza Socks!!!
Knitted by the wonderful Elizabeth, of Calgary. How great to have another Canadian knitting for me. They are Go with the Flow from Interweave Favorite Socks, knitted in Lorna's Laces Mixed Berries colourway. I thought they looked a little narrow in the foot before I put them on, but as you can see the first perfectly, the heel is snug (just the way I like it), absolutely the perfect length and width in the foot and just the right stretch around my calf. Elizabeth is a lovely knitter, I could not have wished for prettier socks.
Elizabeth was very generous and included a cute canvas knitting tote, with a great front pocket, the colours match the sock really well, and a great tin of Simpkins Sour Cherry Drops, the perfect travelling or knitting sweet. I love my Mountie postcard, almost gives a girl Scarlett Fever. My wish is that Elizabeth is as thrilled with her sock pal socks as I am with hers.
