Sock Wars V... 'Cheque' is in the Mail!

17. January 2010 23:40 by Jobo | 6 Comments

well, first thing tomorrow morning, the "cheque" will be in the Mail... heading on a cross country journey out to the west coast!  They will be some seriously well travelled socks by the time they arrive, and hopefully the recipient likes them.

leg #2

Another hour later...

- the leg was coming along nicely... really, this pattern is written quite clearly.  Some other knitters have been a bit confused by the placement of the eyelets and such, but I didn't have any problems (which is a first, usually if there is confusion to be had, I'm smack dab in the middle of it)  I chalk it up to all of the wonderful support of my family and you great readers out there.  My mom and Bff have each called twice today to see if I was finished yet, and the Husband baked a celebratory strawberry rhubarb pie in honor of my perseverance



heel #2

Another Hour later...

- I like straightforward slip-stitch heel flaps.  Easy Peasy.





Then I got lazy about taking photographs.  I knit like there was no tomorrow, and finally:  the finished pair.  (please excuse the sad yellow tinge... it is well past dark and not ideal conditions for photos!)

finished pair

I am a little disappointed that I didn't have time to do a proper blocking, so they are a little bit wrinkly and such, but overall turned out very well in the end.  Plus after looking at the darn things for 2 days straight, I think I may have lost my objectivity ;)

complete package censored

As many other Sock Warriors, I tried this week to find some extras to help soften the final blow for my target... as if Soft Squishy Blue Sockiness wasn't reward enough for a game well played?  I found some sparkly jeweled, dimensional scrapbooking butterfly stickers, and some cute beaded stitch markers that matched with the Blue of the socks.  I wrapped the whole package up in tissue paper and sealed the envelope up good.  I hope she likes them!



Dear Canada Post...

the torch has been passed to you now... Carry my package safely to it's target - and make it SNAPPY!

Wow! You made some fast work out of those. I'm just really hoping that you are not my assassin as I can't even mail mine out until tuesday!

Hurray!!!! Congrats! What a nice assassin you are!Smile

Heather... you are off the hook! I'm not your assassin ;)  Got them mailed successfully and now I get to work all day, and only dream of knitting an entire sock.  So Sad ;)

This is fascinating, please post more often!
