I've Finally Bloomed!!

LET ME CLARIFY:

My Bloomin SOCKS have finally bloomed!! LOL!!

This was my first swap of any kind and despite the stress of knitting socks without having an actual foot to try them on.....a somewhat disapointment in the yarn color as well as that unfortunate incident with the yarn running out and having to splice in extra yarn from the first sock.....it has been fun!!!

I have been searching for several weeks to find some extras that I think my sock pal will enjoy and I hope the goodies I will be including will make up for my lack of knitting skills!!!

It has been fun finding new bloggers through this swap that I otherwise would not have found! What a big undertaking to host this swap and a VERY BIG thanks to Amanda for such a wonderful swap and for allowing this "newbie" sock knitter to join in!!!!!

I have been inspired to join the Hurricane Sock Swap Party 2007!!

I will be putting my pkg. in the mail middle of next week.

To My Pal: I hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

Deficiencies? They look fabulous dah-lin'! Seriously, I think we all get a little nervous about our knitting and will they fit, etc. but I'm sure your socks will make some happy feet!

The socks look GREAT to me! Love the color too ... altho I understand your worry from running short on yarn. It looks like it all came out right in the end.
