Sockapalooza – Finished, Packaged and Sent

Well my sock pall stated – she only makes socks for herself in neutral colours – blues, brown, creams and generally varigated….

…..and her favourite colours are red and pink….

So after 3 different yarns, and 4 four different patterns these were the winners(!)

BlockingJust hope she likes it!!!  (and hope it gets there as the post here in the UK is dire at the mo!)

Well these are they – still on the blockers….

  • Yarn:  Colinette Jitterbug – Magenta
  • Needles: 2.5mm DPN’s
  • Pattern:  Socks! Socks! Socks!, Tiger Eyes (but with the mock cabling modified as I didn’t like it(!)

Back

Back pattern based on the mock cable – but rather than purl inbetween I just knitted and looped across and liked this more!!

Included in the little pack were:

BitsCard

Cute stitchmarkers that match the socks(!), a little skein of emergency yarn (made by me), the label of the yarn for reference and a card of warwick castle painted by an artist form my village 🙂

Total package!! Package

 Just hope she likes it!!  (and with the postal strikes here in the UK that it actually gets to the States!)

Posted on Saturday 4th August – so fingers crossed they get there before Christmas!!
