My sockapaloooza socks came last night! Made by Nona! I was so excited – after reading the tutorial for Sidewinders, I just knew these socks would be awesome.
They’re miniMonkeys! In Gems Pearl – Lilac (heal/toe) and Baby Lilac (body). And she knit at a super tight gauge for me, so that they’d fit in my shoes. They’re shorter than your average Monkey, making them more summery (which is perfect, since I wore them today, and it’s “cooled down” to 94 today). (I always wear handknits as soon as they’re ready. Let me tell you about the day it was 85 and I wore a silk/wool sweater to work…)
And, she included some awesome extra yarn – Lorna’s Laces “Uptown”
And Jess helped me take photos:
(She thought the picture needed to be more punk, since i don’t have a tattoo to show off)
And she wanted to show off her shoes, even though mine…
…are clearly much more awesome.
