Sockapalooza Part II

My socks arrived today! They're from Kathy, who doesn't have a blog. These socks are so gorgeous that they definitely deserve some blog action.

The box arrived packed with extra yarn just to fill the box and a package tied with a hint of the colors I'd find inside.

Here are the beautiful socks! They're dyed with Kool-Aid and knit in a slip stitch pattern to show off the colors. I literally squealed when I first saw them. I love bright colors like this, but I don't trust my own color sense to do this on my own. I end up with muddled messes instead of works of art like these.

I put them on my feet roughly three seconds after the other picture was taken. They fit perfectly!

Thanks again, Kathy, and thanks to Alison for organizing this. I am SO ready for Sockapalooza Two. I even had delusions of hosting my own Sock Exchange as I walked back from the mail box today. Hmm...

Yay! I'm so glad you like them! They were so much fun to knit up - I loved watching to see where the colors would go next. Hoping it brightened a cool day out there in Colorado :-)

Very cool! That slip-stitch pattern really is pretty. So glad that you had fun and love your new socks.

(If things keep going so well, I'll definitely be doing a Sockapalooza 2!)

I love those socks! They look like they fit perfectly.
I just got my Rowan 37 today (a swap with chelsea-http://thedevashands.blogspot.com/
and I remember (I think) reading on your blog somewhere that Lion Brand cotton can be used for one of the Rowan cotton yarns. I can't find it on your blog now though- do you remember which one it is? Thanks! (It is definitely more attainable to me with my limited knitting budget!!)
