I got my Sockapaloooza Socks!!!!

I got my socks today! Don't they freaking rock! And I didn't even know they had come! I had several packages in the mail, and assuming they were Warming Grace squares I left them until this afternoon. When I opened the package I only saw the material and I thought; "Wow, these are some seriously cool squares." I pulled out the postcard (see I am so much more interested in the notes you keep sending me with the squares!) and I am reading it and then it dawned on me: My Sockapaloooza Socks! Delivered under the radar! I pulled them out right away. Oh my God! They are so beautiful! My lousy photos make it look as if one is lighter than the other but that is the blinding sunlight and not the wool. My pal is Tara who hails from Ottawa. My pal has been knitting away less than 2 and a half hours from me and I never even knew it! I am sure Tara has been having a few laughs about that! Tara, these socks are so wonderful. The pattern is the infamous Pomatomus sock! I have been planning to knit these babies. And the sock yarn is Fleece Artist 100% Washable Merino Wool. Too funny. I was going to knit my sock pal's socks in this yarn (different colourway) and changed to Lorna's Laces! So I put them on right away and they haven't come off since. I love them! Thank you so much Tara - you are amazing (and so so so close!). I love my socks, woohoo, I love my socks, oh yeah, I love my socks, I'm never taking them off, oh yeah!

oh those sockapalooza socks are great! That is such a sturdy pattern - it shows up in pretty much any yarn I've seen them done in.
Glad to hear my parcel arrived too :-)
