Putting my feet up!



I finished the second sock at around 1.30pm (BST) on Sunday afternoon. This is me checking that the socks will fit—they're a bit big for me so I hope that means that they will fit a US size *. Tsarlingfeld's socks are in the mail! I was feeling a little guilty at the thought of sending out killer socks first thing on Monday morning but I needn't have been as she has also been knitting "like the wind"! I am, however, I little worried about my yarn choice as DK alpaca seems a little warm for California—does it ever get cold out there? I feel like I'm going to be an early casualty of war though. My assassin, tigerlilith, has got her socks finished and is UK based (gah!). I love the colour though and they're knitted in cashmerino (yay).

The only thing about this competition is that the socks take longer to post than they do to knit. Won't that mean that everyone will have knit a pair of socks and sent them off before anyone receives any? Clapotis wars anyone?

it's getting confusing already, eh? so... i've sent mine to you, you've sent yours to your target, and your target looks to have finished theirs too! does that mean your target's target should send to me?? my brain hurts...
xo lilith
...plus i'll probably get killed tomorrow anyways! this is too hard...

Anxiously waiting for the mail now - I'm constantly cold, even in summer (hubby in shorts/no top, and I'm in sweats). I love the purple and am NUTS about alpaca!!!!. Thank You.

Who's next?

I absolutely think that very few people will get to knit on socks started by someone else. Ah well. At first, yarnmonkey wanted to group regionally, she didn't do it. So a lot of mail runs for 6 days or more (cross-Atlantic). Just happy to know that somewhere out there socks are on the way to me.
