My Sock Savior

Crazy sockness Batman! First, I learned I was ditched by the person who had me... then, I realized that my pal (whom I knit the Raspberry Limeade socks for) never even acknowledged that she received them or that she liked or disliked them (are you out there??).. and lastly, I get the most amazing and thoughtful package from Janine in the mail today. Go sock saviors!! Janine, you made me cry.. really.

Look at all the goodies! I received some gorgeous cards from Oklahoma (and a handmade one from her 5 year old daughter...awesome!), an amazing bar of lavender soap (one of my favorite scents), a small bag filled with stitch markers, a larger zip bag that will be holding lots of my knitting accessories and some pretty frick'in cool socks.



Look at how perfect these bad boys fit?! Perfect. I couldn't have made them fit any better Janine! And they are even in my favorite color... blue :)




Sorry I've been MIA the last couple of weeks. I've been a bit under the weather and have lots of new knitting projects to update you all on. So, maybe tomorrow, I'll get around to posting some pictures! There is also a Sunshine Yarns update tomorrow as well, so go check that out for some new colorways!

My sockee never acknowledged my socks either, even after I sent her an email...frustrating, isn't it? I don't know how anyone could ignore those raspberry limeade socks!! I'm glad you got such a great package to make up for all the disappointment!

How ANYONE could not acknowledge your wonderful socks is beyond me! I am happy you had such a nice saviour though - you certainly deserve it!

Nice to have you posting =)

Gosh...it's so sad to hear about people not acting in a courteous way....and especially about socks!!!

I'm so happy your savior came thru!

We need to think up a clever name for the slackers!

Great job, sock savior! I can't understand how someone wouldn't love those rasp.limeade socks. Will that colorway be available in superwash? Cyndy

Cyndy, there is raspberry limeade superwash there now -- I got some a while back for my daughter, and it knits up really pretty! You can see the socks on my blog, just scroll back a few entries.
