Sockapalooza!

I received my fab-0 socks last week, from my sockpal PixelDiva - great colour, great fit, designed by her especially for me!! She also included a fab skein of rose red yarn and the cutest little lamb, with spare sock yarn just in case...I love these socks - a picot cuff, which I've always wanted to try on socks but haven't yet, and a great eyelet pattern down both sides of the leg and foot.
And best of all, an arrow lace pattern down the back of the sock - I really like the idea of the pattern at the back - looks like a plain sock from the front but the real interest is behind!Now just have to decide what to make with the yummy squishy yarn - something for me, me me!!

And if you want to be further impressed, check out Bells - after some not inconsiderable effort, Bells is almost at the summit with her steeked jacket - a fantastic effort of which I am so jealous!

Such classy, elegant, fun socks! Your sockpal did great!! And the extra yarn for darning is a good idea, too.

Thanks for stopping by to comment, I may well be asking questions soon; I'll be casting on for my first pair of sock soon.

Jejune said...

Oh they are gorgeous socks! I love the little lamby too... hmmm, a friend for Lulu?? But no, your lamb looks too innocent and sweet. Better not let them meet...

Diana said...

I'd say those were sexy socks with that lace down the back!!! Very nice!

Like the pattern at the back, it's going to make people stare at your ankles. Sheep seem to be popular in England at the moment :-)
