Just Rewards

Well, I think I am largely recovered from the rush to get my Sockapalooza socks sent off. Now it's time for the just rewards...

My pal emailed me earlier today with the shipping details (I should be able to track it on its journey thanks to DHL... maybe that's a little too obsessive though?) for my sock package ... it's on its way, it's on its way! I am very, very excited to see what will be inside.

Being the impatient type that I am though I decided I deserved a reward sooner. Hence the arrival this morning of this:



I was rather impressed with the Piece of Beauty yarn I used for my Sockapalooza socks, so I decided I'd treat myself to 100g of the same - although, of course, it is not the same because mine is in the quite fabulous Sweetgrass colour. I love it! It's got more of a yellow tinge to it than my rather blueish looking photos and is, in short, quite luscious. As for a pattern I'm thinking Elfine's socks - inspired by some beautiful examples.

First of all, though, there are the Lombard Street socks to be finished, I'm working on the heel flap of the second sock... onwards!

Your post made me, it is not too obsessive to track the package. (My husband will ask me over and over again whether a package he's ordered has arrived yet even when the tracking info says it hasn't left the warehouse...alas). By the way, I absolutely covet that's gorgeous. Happy post sockapalooza knitting!
