I've got my sock pal socks!

I love them! They're knit with Fortissima Socka Mit Bambou (wool/nylon/bamboo) and they fit perfectly. The pattern is Thuja from Knitty. I love the yarn and the colors too! This is my first pair of handknit socks. I've knit them for many friends and family, but none for myself. I wore them around the house for quite a while before the 100 degree heat made me take them off. Thank you Wanda! You're fabulous! I greatly appreciate all the work you put into these socks... I couldn't ask for a better pair!She also included this skein of Trekking. I love the colors! I'm tagging it for the first pair of socks I make for myself. I've truly enjoyed Sockapalooza and will definitely take part next time!

You're very welcome Jenn! I'm glad you like them. I hoped that I paid enough attention to your colors that this pair would be to your liking. I can't believe you've knit socks for so many others, but none for yourself? That's crazy talk! Well now you have a pair for yourself and yarn to make another pair!

You've not made socks for yourself!!!!! That needs to be fixed post-haste. I admit that my first several pair of socks went to family members too, but after listening to them - Dad especially - go on and on about how nice they were I knew I had to start making them for myself. They are truly something special!
