Sockapaloooza goodness!

I came home today to find a large envelope smooshed into my mail box (I sometimes think my postal carrier has it in for me).

I was so excited, because I knew what it was! SOCKS!!!!! Socks that have come all the way across the US.

And look at all these cool things that my pal, Kat, sent! There are postcards and pictures from her area of the country. And a beautiful hand dyed merino/tencel sock yarn from Mind’s Eye Yarns in absolutely my favorite shades of my favorite color, green!

And what’s that down there towards the bottom? Could that be… maple candy? Oh, Kat, how did you know that I will kill for that stuff!

aren’t these great socks!

There were also a couple of candies that unfortunately didn’t survive our mini-heat-wave of the last couple of days (ok… mild warm spring weather). And a candy bar that I have put in the fridge where it will hopefully solidify. And cookies that unfortunately didn’t survive my mail carrier smooshing the package into my mail box (darn him/her!).

I ate them anyway. 😛 Nothing wrong with cookie crumbs.

And here you can see the lovely socks on my happy, happy feet. They fit perfectly! I love the way the colors spiraled. It’s hard to tell from this pic, but the spirals actually continue from one leg to the other. Very cool.

This is Artyarns Supermerino. I’ve been wanting to get a good look at this yarn, and now I have some!

Thank you, Kat! These were well worth the wait!
