Cawthraven...does your spreadsheet say perhaps that Vendie has meeeeee?? :eyebrow:

Sources say: Not enough information. :teehee:



:teehee:

Here are some hints...

I knit socks for someone who:

-> lives north of me
-> has bigger footsies than me
-> is friends with someone here in real life

:whistle:

But.. um... where's the PARTIAL in that nudity?? :teehee:

She is wearing socks. :roll: That pic is so funny. They fit her whole leg! And that is a really interesting stitch. I haven't seen it before. Very cool.

Partner, your socks were sent Priority Mail on Friday. I really hope you get them tomorrow.

Too vague??? :teehee:


I'm still hoping to get them in the mail tomorrow. I decided to block them at the last minute, just to work out any fur that I might have accidentally knit in. I have a horrible feeling that one of the socks grew, even though it's a superwash wool. And that adds to the nagging feeling that I might have made them too big! :help: Pal, I'm sending along the rest of the yarn too, so you can make adjustments if necessary.

not too vague.
you were already in suspician as not being my partner (booo)
but that settles it, you are officially highlighted in purple: the official not my partner colour!!!!!!
:pout: :pout: :pout:


of course, now knowing that we are keeping track of this, you could be just sayign this to throw us off!!!! tricksy tricksy!!!!

I've got it REALLY narrowed down: only about 6 or 7 possibilities.

I received my socks from my pal on Saturday!!!! Sorry, Earthchick, I did not post yesterday, but I was totally exhausted. I did not even go to my knitting group last night, I was so tired. I did manage to remember to go by the post office!

:muah: :muah: :happydance: :cheering: :notworthy: :cheering: :happydance:

I posted pictures on my blog since I am not sure how to do that here. They are perfectly lovely socks, in Furman purple. Thank you so much! I am wearing them today.

I TOTALLY agree, Andee! And, for me... that pretty much limits me to at home with my dogs. Im not saying they APPRECIATE it, per se, but they dont seem to mind. :shrug:

Yarni... click "edit" on your post above and see what I did. :thumbsup:

Those sockkies look GREAT, EC!! :notworthy:

02-18-2007, 05:41 PM
Wow! Thanks for doing that! I came back to the website before reading your post and thought "how in the heck did I do that?" Ha!

I am going to have to figure it out. It probably involves taking smaller pics or editing to smaller sizes. I need a decent photoediting software though.

KellyK
02-18-2007, 05:45 PM
After you post pics in your blog, you can right-click on THAT pic and choose "properties". Copy the url string, insert it it the post and put [img] and /img (with brackets) on either side of the string. The pic will be the same size on KH as it appears in your blog.

Hope that helps! :hug:

THANKS PAL!

I hope you like them pal!! :heart: You should be able to smell the contents before you open it :wink:

It is mY birthday today too!!!

Happy Birthday Andrea and Cara! :muah:

And YAY :cheering: my sock pal got her socks! Yarngineer, I'm glad you like them! And they look like they fit! (your foot is like 1/8" shorter than mine) I really didn't intentionally make them Furman colors, but you know, maybe subconsciously I came up with that after seeing you live there (Yarngineer lives near my alma mater, which I just thought was so cool since no one up here has ever heard of Furman University).

I guess I'm not as much of a geek as I thought I was, with the spreadsheet (though mine isn't nearly as intricate as everyone else's!). I guess we're all just knitting knerds. :teehee:

Hi Margaret (thischickknits)-

So glad that you love your socks and that they fit! :cheering: (I worried about that). I was getting concerned about whether or not they had arrived since it had been almost two weeks since I sent them and they theoretically should have been there right when you were getting slammed with snow, so I am glad to hear that they arrived.

And now I am going to show them off so everyone can see:

Ang & Kelly - The yarn is Plymouth Yarn's Suri Merino (http://www.yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=2343) in color # 791.

It isn't a sock yarn, but it is a light worsted weight, so I was able to get guage for a DK weight sock. It is super soft. I hope it wears okay as a sock!

I heard somewhere else that it's pancake day in the UK. Is that true?? If so, I think that's SO coool! I grew up having pancakes for dinner on a regular basis - I do it with my own family now too, and my dh finally doesn't think it's weird. :teehee:

Still waiting on my socks -- I think they should be here soon, my buddy emailed that they were being mailed late last week. :happydance:

WOW! - love the gorgeous dark blue socks. Great job, Nikki! So yummy.

Speaking of yummy, we are doing pancakes for dinner at our house, too, for Shrove Tuesday/Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras/whatever you want to call it. Also, where I live in Michigan, it's traditional on Fat Tuesday to have Paczki - Polish jelly-filled doughnuts. So I started the day with doughnuts and will end it with pancakes. Fat Tuesday indeed! :teehee:

To my partner *clearing throat*

I thought I should stop in, dear partner, to say
For you not to fear on this Sockintine's Day
It looks like I'll finish your socks, yes, today
And by tomorrow they should be well on their way
And if all things go right on your porch Saturday
And when they arrive, post a pic here and display
The Socks on the feet of my partner, _____

Oh, and...I think that in my haste to get your package in the mail, I neglected to include the sock fiber info...they are 50% superwash merino, 50% tencel. What fabulous yarn to work with! I'd spun with merino/tencel before but I hadn't knit with it...it's so yummy!!

Yep - it's Shrove Tuesday, I had forgotten but Cameron kindly reminded me. Fortunately they don't take long to make - flour, egg, milk& water .... then some lemon juice, sugar and grated dark chocolate YUM YUM YUM!

Usually if I am organised and remember we will have ice-cream to put in them but he was satisfied without.

Here is a picture of my beautiful socks. My swap partner made me a pair of beautiful earrings. The charm is a ball of yarn with needles stick out of it. I can't get a good picture on my camera though :( I absoluately love my socks and my earrings. Thank you so very much!

My swap pattern used the sensational knitted socks book, the basketweave (I believe is the pattern). They are just beautiful. The same day I received my socks, I also received that book in the mail that I ordered. It was almost like christmas!

Ooo! Lovely sockies!

Angelia, I do believe Barbados is North of you :teehee: (anywhere can be north if you put yer body right!) Simply GORGEOUS and such detail! I on the other hand am slightly ashamed of what I've sent. I really tried. They came out great sockwise but... anyways when you see them you'll know what happened. :verysad:

please don't stone me with sock yarn y'all when you see her sockies - that's why I'm not botherin' to post 'em

I haven't gotten a word from my sock pal and that's not a problem because I haven't contacted mine either. Poor thing must be wondering (like me) if she's even getting socks at all!

I got my socks today!!! My partner was KnittyKitty, and Lisa, I am in NO WAY disappointed with my socks. (I got an e-mail from KnittyKitty and she explained what had happened with the socks and offered to rip them and start over so they wouldn't have the spliced section and I told her to leave them as they are, that it makes them unique.) The color is a lot like the color I chose for the socks I made for my partner, and is definitely "me"! I also got a "coffee cake" candle that smells good enough to eat, and some face lotion for dry skin that I'm going to try tonight. I've had the socks on since I opened the package, they fit perfectly and I am touched that so much work and thought was put into them. They came out great and I love them. Honest. :hug: :muah:

My partner's sock will go out in the morning. Hopefully they will make it there by Saturday if I send them priority. Sorry for the long wait, but I think they came out really nice for my first pair of finger weight socks. I've done one other pair before, but they were worsted weight! So I learned about with this pair :)

~danielle~

PS I think my mom will be sending her partner's out in the morning as well. She had problems grafting toes (these are her first real pair of socks, she's done slipper socks).

:cheering: I'm glad they fit so well. I was scared when they got so much longer when I washed them. Maybe having a foot in them stretches them back out side to side and shortens the length. I wanted to put them back on to see if that would happen, but i had just washed them. :wall:

The Andes mints were pure luck though. I thought, "Andes mints. EVERYONE loves Andes mints..."

Hey y'all. I am sooo feeling the sock love right now. :heart: If you've never read Pablo Neruda's "Ode to My Socks," I put it on my blog today in honor of my gorgeous Sockintine Socks and my sweet Sock Pal. Check it out. (http://www.earthchicknits.blogspot.com/)

I was just about to say the same thing!!! I got to see them being knitted! Fortunately for you, she didn't take our advice to leave her mistake - she only decreased on one side on one of the toes :doh: I/We told her that she should leave it and then the sock would be a definite left/right sock :teehee:

Socks! I got socks! I'm totally :whoosh: because the UPS guy buzzed me to say I had a package and I was trying to think what it was. Then I opened it up and it was a box wrapped in red paper with hearts all over it. I thought it was from a boy! When I opened it, socks! And candy (Lindt truffles - "so not good for the 4 pack I'm hoping to have by summer", I say as I pop one in my mouth)! And a teddy bear! :happydance: Thank you sooooo much Nan101, you are such a great sock partner! I'm wearing them right now. I'm leaving for school and work in a bit, and I'm going to wear them out and show them to everybody.

Btw, what sock yarn is this?

JLC THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE AMAZING SOCKS!!! I've been wearing them all morning!! Ah, Lorna's Laces!!!!! Incredible! My DH has the camera, so I can't upload my pics right now, but plan to later tonight and pics of the nice treats you added to the package!!

Amazing toes, too!!!! Love them!!! THANK YOU!!! :muah:

I'm glad you like the socks. The truffles are my weakness, especially the white chocolate :happydance: I totally forgot to put the wrapper with the rest of the yarn in the box :wall: The yarn is Austermann Step. I really enjoyed working with it, so soft.

knitqueen
02-21-2007, 04:41 PM
Ohhh, I love Austermann Step too :heart: It's so soft. I've got a ball of it sitting around here that I need to turn into a pair of socks for ME. :teehee:

Well, I don't know what you did to your heel, but they are really comfortable. I really need to lean that. What did you do? If I knit with yarn this thick, I definitely feel where I picked up the stitches, but with your socks not at all. I really love them and I'm never gonna take them off again. (ok, just quickly to wash them)

Lieke I accidentally knit the heel inside out or backwards I guess :aww: but I'm glad that their comfortable. I was so worried I didn't pick the stitches up correctly because that was my first timew doing that as well :teehee: I feel so proud now that I know you like them soo much :hug:

TO WHOMEVER KNIT THE RPM SOCKS FROM KNITTY,

Sorry it's too much for me to figure out just now, but I'd love the pattern for some handpainted Opal that I bought. Could this same pattern be done on dpns or just 2 circs? (I don't know how to do that!!)

Everybody's socks are gorgeous. I want a pair of each. I think it would be nice if everyone posted the patterns they used. Some, I know, are freebies and I'd love to try them.

I used blueberry waffle http://www.knitlist.com/98gift/blueberrysocks.htm
which is a nice stretchy pattern for those of us with puffy feet. but it's a simple pattern and really comfortable. I know, I have several pairs in that pattern.


I wish I could post the socks, but I'm picture challenged.
(Besides, i sent my socks off without a pix.)

I knit the RPMs on 3 DPNs, using the 4th as my working needle. Just put 1/4 of the sts on needles 1 & 2, and half on needle 3. You'll be all good! That's not even a pattern that needs to be centered before starting the heelflap!

AmandaC
02-22-2007, 11:56 AM
I knit the RPM's on 4 dpn's - I just split the stitches that would have been on one circ into 2 dpns and called them both needle 1 ... if you get what I mean. Same as KK but 1 more dpn. I've never tried 2 circs (because I don't have more than 1 set in each size!)

02-22-2007, 03:17 PM
Thanks Vendie!!!

I got your package today and I'm already wearing the socks. So soft and comfy and the colors :passedout: are... TO DIE FOR! I'll post pics as soon as I can find my camera :eyebrow:

I stayed up late last night to finish the socks for my Pal. They are currently drying and should be ready to send tomorrow!!!

Stiney
02-22-2007, 03:26 PM
I wanna see your socks in peeeeeeerson, Daisy!

Vendie
02-23-2007, 10:33 AM
Do they fit ok, Daisy?? I'm not used to knitting socks that aren't for me :teehee: I was looking at them and thought they might be a little too long.

02-23-2007, 02:26 PM
No teaser pics, Daisy??? :pout:

earthchick
02-23-2007, 04:39 PM
Okay, because I'm still a curious geek, even though I've got my socks and my pal has gotten hers, I'm still keeping up with my rudimentary spreadsheet. I'm trying to figure out who is still waiting on socks. Here's the list I have of who hasn't gotten theirs yet:

Angelia
cheesiesmom
dreadfull
Vendie
Jsiaokuo
jcmom
Jenelle
jhelanee
jolenel
jrsas
Julie
KellyK
knitqueen
knittingmitchie
KnittyKitty
Leah22b
Lilliyarn
lissalue
mwedzi
Rorshach
want2knit

Is that list right? I realize that some people's names have changed since sign up (Deeknit is now five_six, right? and I know that Fiber_Girl is Vendie - has anyone else's name changed?) I also may have a couple of those names wrong b/c I can't read my own writing very well (like knittingmitchie - I'm not at all sure that is right). I also may very well have missed a couple of "I got my socks" announcements, though I do track this thread rather obsessively.

what? can you tell?

Stiney
02-23-2007, 04:45 PM
deeknit and five_six are not the same person.

Let me see what I have...

Angelia
Cara

I got my socks this week from Knittinmitchie. Sent her a personal note, but I guess I should have let the forum know too. My apologies.

My pal created a pair of st st socks from KP Dancing in a lovely peachy-aqua-brown colorway. They were very nice and I particularly loved the color. I would post a picture but I am picture challenged. (gotta work on that!)

A public thanks to Knittinmitchie for the socks and her delicious peanut butter fudge bears. (And the recipe, too.) :hug:

And especially thanks to our swap leader for putting this all together. It's been a lot of fun.

I shouldn't be on the still waiting list... My partner is still waiting to receive my socks, poor thing, but I have got my lovely socks.

And I posted pics, somewhere back a few pages... :oops:

EC, I got mine last week. Yarngineer was my pal :heart:

take your time pal!

oh and as i was looking at that list i realized tha tmy user name might sound kinda weird. but i called my self dreadfull because i have dreadlocks, so i have a head full of dreads!

i'm sending my socks super soon

I PROMISE!

jhelanee
02-23-2007, 06:05 PM
You are correct that I haven't gotten mine yet. Because she was running late, my pal revealed herself to me, sent a nice present to ease the waiting and promised she will get my socks finished soon. :muah: Real Lift (tm) trumps swap knitting occasionally, and that is as it should be in this case and fine with me. Hope things are going better for you, pal! :hug:

allegra918
02-23-2007, 06:26 PM
Wow, I must say I am relieved to know that my pal isn't the only one who hasn't received their socks yet!!!! Beginning of next week, I promise!!!

I still have to post pics on the lovely socks and treats I got from JLC. I have been wearing my socks NON STOP...... :oops: maybe too much :oops:

I've been using Google Spreadsheets, and noticing some wonkiness, five_six. I remember putting your info into the spreadsheet. :shrug:

Spreadsheet has been duly updated! :thumbsup:

I'm patiently waiting here too. This is good incentive for me to check my mail more diligently! :teehee:

earthchick
02-23-2007, 08:58 PM
Der, I'm a doofus - I knew that you had gotten yours Vendie - my sock pal was your pal! - I don't know how I ended up with your name still on my list.

Five_six, I knew you'd gotten yours (who could ever forget that nakey pic of your little cutiepie! :teehee: ) - but for some reason I thought you used to be deeknits (I guess b/c you are both named Dee!)

And I don't know how I left friskums off the list - sorry 'bout that. And I don't know why I had mwedzi on the list. Dudes. I'm a slacker geek, eh?

So have Hsiaokou and Jenelle received their socks? (I didn't see them on your list, cawthraven)

And wow, Shandeh, that was so sweet (and classy!) for you to send our awesome swap coordinator that package. Thank you, Angelia, for organizing a great swap!! :cheering:

Stiney
02-23-2007, 09:05 PM
Let's see...Hsiaokuo yes (from Cara), and I thought Jenelle got her socks, but I don't see any mention in the thread, so she might have said it in chat?

jrsas
02-23-2007, 09:23 PM
Yes I am on your list :verysad: as Mulene was my swap pal...Hopefully she is beginning to feel better :hug: . My mom has had back problems and pain for years so I do understand. I enjoy looking at all the beautiful socks and stuff everyone else is receiving.

Thank you Angelia for organizing the swap :happydance: :muah: :notworthy:

Yay!!! I'm glad you got your package, my friend! :muah:
(I was beginning to think it was lost in the mail, because I mailed it the same day I sent my partner's socks. What's up with that? :?? )

Angelia, you ROCK! Thanks SO much for all your hard work organizing and communicating during all this sockintine craziness!!! You da GIRL! :happydance:

Angelia
02-24-2007, 08:16 AM

I just wanted to let my pal know that I am finally almost done with my first sock. I am sorry that it has taken this long. I didn't realize that I would have had such a hard time learning to make socks with sock yarn I made a pair a while back in ww yarn that turned out allright :shrug: I hope that the socks and the extra stuff that I have been adding are worth the wait :hug:

She also included some tealights and a cute knitting greeting card. I don't have access to a camera right now, but I'll definitely take photos next time I can.

P.S. I'm wearing the socks right now. :teehee:

I'm glad you got them and I'm sorry they went out a little late. I did send the priority mail so I'm glad you got them before the weekend :) I love that yarn. It was so much fun to work with! It patterned so pretty as well. The tealights are from my partylite stash. I sell partylite so I always have beautiful candles burning!

Glad to hear they fit!

Kelly,
Don't think I mentioned the pattern to Jenelle when I made those. It's the Crossroads Sock, from Woolen Collectibles. I used Casacde worsted weight.
Thanks for the compliment. I went back and forth on the pattern and what to use.

Shandeh
02-24-2007, 10:08 PM
I think it's so cool that so many new sock knitters have made their first socks for the sockintine's swap. Now, they are official sock knitters! :cheering:

Happy late birthday, Cara! My birthday Soul Mate!!! :balloons:

Here's a picture of my lovely socks from Sara Jayne that I've neglected to post so far! I would take a picture of the Godiva chocolate that she also gave me, but that would be kinda hard if you know what I mean :shifty:

Sara Jayne, those socks you made for Andrea are amazing! They look sooooo warm! What is the yarn/pattern? I LOVE IT!

the owner of my LYS has our birthday too..... no wonder her and I get along so well!!!

I got my goodies today! :cheering: My swap pal was monzogary and I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You have spoiled me. Lovely socks, I believe it's the Hedera pattern from knitty (the pic makes it look like one is longer than the other but they are the same, trust me), some bubble bath from Bath & Body Works, a great coloring book and stuffed toy for my kids, a Betty Crocker dessert mix, a nice note and some Arby's valentines coupons (too bad we don't have an Arby's close by :pout: ). THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

:muah:

P.S. You didn't mention anything about the yarn - is it machine washable???

monzogary
02-26-2007, 04:05 PM
Yeah it finally got there! :cheering: I'm glad your package got there safe and sound. The yarn is vintage 100% washable wool, and I hand dyed it with kool aid especially for your socks. It says washable, but not whether it is dryable or not. I am making some socks for my dd with the same brand of yarn now, but haven't made or washed anything else with it yet. Oh and yes, the pattern is Hedera, and it was such a fun knit! Looks nice, but the pattern is not especially hard to do. I'm glad you like the stuff, and it looks like the socks fit!
You are very welcome!

P.S. I went to the Arby's website and it said there were Arby's within 50 miles of your city :shrug: . Oh well LOL!

Oh Rorshach, I got my socks yesterday!!! Squeeeeeee!! They fit perfectly: they're a bit snug, which I love :heart:, and they're really cozy! I've had them on since last night (I even slept in them!) :happydance: The fuzzies at the tops of the cuffs are sooo soft!! It's nice not having ribbing cut into my calves! :teehee:

For the rest of you, I also got a cute kitty card (kitty with yarn!! :inlove:) and some chocolates (perfect knitting companions, those little chocolates...though they're not companions for long... :shifty:)

Thank you thank you thank you!! Oh...nice gussets, by the way! :eyebrow:

Here they are! I can't manage to take a decent photo of them on my feet--how do you people take photos of your socks while you're wearing them?!

Your quite welcome, Angelia, though knitting the cuffs wasn't easy, as I had never worked with that type of yarn before, but after the first one was done, it was fairly easy to tell where the real stitches were. Now my wife wants a pair of the same type of socks :)

Angelia

They're in the mail somewhere headed somewhere and will get there someday... :teehee:


Rorshach, I can't even SEE the stitches on the fuzzy part! I've worked with fake mohair, and that was hard enough--I'd have gone mad with this yarn. You did really well, though! (Oh, and I still have the socks on...all I can say is your wife's feetsies will be very happy! :teehee: )

Rorshach
03-02-2007, 12:18 AM
hehe, well the trick to that particular yarn was that I could feel the real stitches on the needle. Though I'm wondering how you were able to take that picture of your socks, every time I did so I couldn't get a good picture of it, and the one good pic I did get had to be shot in very low light.

Those socks are so pretty. How did that yarn work for you? I'm looking for a good option to wool.

I found it quite difficult to work with because I am a very tight knitter and it is of course stretchy :teehee: I would try again though but I need to learn to relax my hands when knitting.

They also recommend this yarn for knitting bikini's and swimsuits :teehee:

Well, I certainly couldn't wait two weeks to open the mysterious box waiting for me when I got home. I was very much :?? :?? :?? wondering what I had ordered that would need such a large box. Not one to pass up a mystery, I opened the box to find delicious goodies in all kinds of forms!

Thank you soooooo much cawthraven :hug: :muah: :hug: :muah:

The yarn is Artyarns Supermerino (color 107 - which I love!).
My feetsies are so spoiled now! They'll never feel the same way about a pair of socks again. :rofl: :rofl:
Oh, what are the little pulltags for/supposed to be? I think they look like little ears, but my boyfriend said they look like antenna on a slug. :teehee: Either way I think they are adorable! :heart:


You'll, uh, notice the Moose Munch is already empty. To be fair, it wasn't all gone before I took the picture... but it probably will be by the time I'm done writing this post. :rofl: I've never had it before, but I've always wanted to try it. It's great!

The card, the stickers, the copious amounts of chocolate... it's all wonderful!

I had such a blast with this swap. Thank you again!! :muah: :heart: :muah:

Stiney

They're kitty ears! Mommy said they looked like mistakes. :verysad: (If you want to take them out, I picked up stitches to do them, so you can take them out without ruining the socks.)

Do they fit okay??? They look kinda big. :pout: I'm glad you liked the color. Mom told me repeatedly how much she didn't like the color. :roll:

The Moose Munch is just delicious...we love Harry & David, and they sell the Moose Munch in Target now! :cheering:

I had a feeling they were kitty ears! Of course I won't take them off. I don't have any socks with kitty ears (well, except these now) :rofl: :heart: :heart: :heart:

They fit great. They're a little bit loose, but that just means I can wear them as my super comfy around the house socks. I bet I can even wear them to bed to keep my feet warm since they don't squeeze my toes like normal socks! :happydance: :happydance:

So here's a little teaser for my pal who has been ever so patient.

It's only a teaser of one sock because, ahem, well.......I guess one of my cats decided it wanted to knit on it, and proceeded to "knit" with its claws and I had to RIP THE WHOLE :!!!: THING OUT!!!!!!

granted, I only had about half of it done, BUT STILL!!!!

:waah:

So I'll be hopefully knitting up a storm in the next few days.
The teaser pic doesn't really show the pattern very well and I didn't want to wear it on my foot. I will also be blocking them later......

Sorry about the kitty misshap (Bad kitty Bad Kitty), :figureditout: maybe next time you have to felt something you can put your kitty to work...

Of course they never do it when you want them to so that might be a problem...lol

Don't worry I'm sure your pal will continue to be patient.... :nails: :whistle: :tap: (Just kidding)

The funny thing (well it's not really that funny) is that my cats rarely even acknowledge my knitting (how dare they?!?!?) but Moxy was really intrigued by this pair of socks for some reason. Always needs to lay near them, chew on that pattern, and then try to knit a few rows..... :pout:

My cats have knitting attacks every so often. Mainly they go for my needles, though I have found "felted" bits of yarn and knitting (the result of someone's chewing it! :-x )

I love that sock! Maybe Moxy was just showing appreciation for its loverliness? :shrug:

sara_jayne
03-07-2007, 01:13 PM
The bag is a "knitting on the go" bag. It is from Know Knits (http://www.knowknits.com/) (I got mine at the LYS). It is designed to either clip on your belt or around your wrist so you can knit while out and about. It has a snap loop inside to keep your yarn from tangling and comes in 3 different sizes. Great for throwing in a purse or for those who are coordinated (unlike me) who can knit while walking! :cheering:

It pleases me to no end that you are out globe trotting from Aussie to the US. I'm sure you're stopping by all the wonderful landmarks and tourist spots. Be sure to take lots of pictures of your travels. I wouldn't object to you stopping by LYS or two and picking up souvinier yarn. Maybe I can make lots of international friends for you.

My swap partner was.............. Angelia!

Holy SMACK! WOW. These socks are AMAZING! my digi camera is with my husband right now, but you all know what socks I'm talking about!!!

She didn't include goodies as she went over budget with the socks. hehe. that is fine with me! I am so happy with these amazing socks I wouldn't have wanted anything else anyway! I have looked them over, inside and out and they are so perfect. I can not ever imagine being able to knit at this level. I am in a state of shock right now! hehe!!! So very worth the wait!!! Holy, if I had been knitting this pattern for my partner I would still be knitting them NEXT Valentines day! ha!

Angelia said in her note that she chose this pattern because I said that I wear Birks and crocs... which I do.. all the time! YAY!!!!!

:notworthy:

Angelia, thank you so much for all the many hours you put into these socks. I will be blabbing to everyone all about them everytime I wear them! I am going to take them to my Pilates Training in boston in a couple of weeks as I will be wearing my crocs inside the whole weekend!!!

is typing in CAPS like SCREAMING?... cause I'm not really screaming..but very excited.

good thing my husband isn't here... he'd be having to leave the room for fear of getting caught up in the happy dance!

So does superwash really mean... super wash? in the machine? and dry?

please tell me how to take care of these so I can keep them forever and ever!

Cara

Angelia
03-09-2007, 09:25 AM
Yes, all-caps is 'screaming'--though we use it here for emphasis ALL the time! :teehee:

Yep, superwash means machine washable (i.e., won't felt). On the yarn bands, the directions are "Hand or machine wash/dry." So you can toss them in the dryer as well, or you can lay them flat to dry. Your choice!

I'm SOOOOO glad they fit and that you like them! :blooby:

Leah,

Want2knit should've already received hers, as I was the one who made them, and I show that the package did arrive.

Thanks!
I'll update my list.

We've got the knitters waiting for socks, but I know who hasn't sent them, too. :twisted:

Leah,

I'm here..........hi guys, I've been without a computer for going on 2 weeks now (typing from library right now!) , so I haven't been able to keep updated on all the socks, but I did get my socks from someone on here named "willow"--is that you Rorshach? They fit me great, and once I get my computer back I'll take a pic. I've missed this board so much. Good news, I've almost completed another sock since Sockintine swap ended! See ya!

My partner should have gotten her socks, but she hasn't replied to any emails and I haven't seen her on here. :shrug:

Actually, Willow is my wife, but unfortunately due to some RL concerns she had to bow out, so instead of disappointing someone, I jumped in and made her pair for her, but she did pick out the design, and yarn.

:doh: Didn't read far enough down to see that the identity of "Willow" was already answered. oh well, if you didn't know then, you do now :roflhard:

I wore the socks today! I showed them off to EVERYONE! I will have to wash them and then I'll get my husband to take some pictures. :)
