Sock Swap

Hallow sock Sunday brought with it our second sock swap.  I was blown away by the lovely red beaded swirl socks that Crystal knit for me (a perfect fit).  And the great goodies she included were spot on, a great martini wash cloth, martini glass stitch markers,  martini sticker buttons, euclan, almonds,  chocolate,  sock patterns and a skein of  lovely manos silk/wool blend and All Things Heather sock yarn.  SLR_1628

The Big Reveal

Slr_0361   Thank you, Debbi!  We Slr_0340 swapped our Silly Socks this afternoon. Debbi spoiled me with these lovely blue socks that fit perfectly (I need to get the specs on them), some Spunky Eclectic roving,  some of Mary's fabulous stitch markers, a yummy cookbook, handmade soap that smells good enough to eat, hot cocoa (that will be going Slr_0342r with me to work), a fantastic sock pattern, and a whooping 600 yards of yarn called Dragonfly.  And thank you Christine, Crystal and Kathy for the wonderful narration….it was almost as good as being there.  What a great idea Julie and Crystal ! The group reveal photo's are here and go over and check out Madame Purl's lovely new socks.Slr_0345  Slr_0344   Slr_0352
