A big thank you goes to my Sock-ret Pal for sending me the yarn made just for Sock-ret Pal participants, called Hot Sox.This yarn is made by Susie at Perchance to Knit and it is gorgeous. The colorway is black, lime green, hot pink, and electric blue. I can't wait to knit it up. I was so excited when I received the package!
The yarn also came with a beautiful pink crystal stitch marker attached with a note from my pal. I feel very spoiled. Thank you so much, Sock-ret Pal! I love it!
It's been a week since my last post because I've been waylaid by the flu. I've just now started feeling good enough to be up and around and write a proper entry on my blog. Unfortunately, being sick with the flu made my head and joints too achey to get any knitting done.
The knitting I started before I got sick was a pair of socks for my mother-in-law, of which I almost have the first one done. I'm excited to show you when they're finished.
In Sock Wars news, Today marks 5 weeks exactly that I'm still in the game. Though I don't know for how much longer, because I got an email this week from the person up the line who is now trying to eliminate me. Depending on how long it takes her to knit me a pair of socks (which shouldn't take very long--the pattern is very quick to knit and I wear a size US 5 shoe) my days are becoming numbered. My second target, Mandy, received her socks of doom from me this week and has forwarded the socks for her next victim on to me. So it is a waiting game to see which socks I receive in the mail first. I would really like another kill under my belt before being taken out of the game. You'll be the first to know, of course. At the time of this writing, out of 772 participants, only 152 are left standing. I feel really good about making it this far. And in the end, what better consolation is there than to receive a nice pair of hand-knit socks just for you?
I wish you all good health.
