a dillydallyknitter: Happy Feet!

Happy Feet!

On Thursday I came home and found a box on the doorstep--my socks from my sock swap partner, Valkyrie!! As all sock knitters know, hand knit socks are the best. So, to receive a pair knit by a fellow knitter is extra special because you know and appreciate the work and time that went into them.

They're soooo pretty and super soft!



She also sent some yummy chocolate caramels, a chocolate bar, some cool bath scrub and this:

Sock yarn from the Yarn Pirate!



In the sweetheart colorway. It's made from 50/50 merino/tencel and feels so soft so I can't wait to try it:

I almost forgot--Valkyrie also included a chicken that lays gum eggs! I tried to get a photo with the eggs but Cary kept batting at them.




Thank you Valkyrie! I love love love my new socks!

Those are very cute socks. I love the color - it's such a pretty blue.

Does Cary blow bubbles with all the gum he's chewing?
