Sockapaloooza Party!

I finished yesterday and blocked them. They're dry and now packaged and tomorrow after work I'm mailing them to my sock pal! I also included some nice things. The extra yarn incase she needs to make repairs, some coffee and tea, and some homemade (and kinda dorky) envelopes.
so they're off tomorrow! I hope she likes them I know they'll fit they were not as big as the last time when I tried blocking them. The yarn is super soft I used lanett superwash merino wool. My sock pals likes merino. I am so nervous now! does everyone get that way? HELP
oh speaking of nervous.....
I got MY socks today.... whoo hooo I opened the envelope and immediately put them on and haven't taken them off yet. I plan on wearing them tomorrow too. They're sooo beautiful! look I took two pix both similar b/c (I told you) I'm not taking them off. They're blue and yellow sooo pretty! My sock pal was Amy. she did a wonderful job! here's a side view.
oh and she was totally kind and awesome she sent me some Socks that Rock sock yarn! WHOO HOOO! and some really cool Massachusetts postcards that I think I'm going to get some of those picture clips that stand free form and hold your pix with them up.. like art. They're so pretty! thank you soo much! I love them!
anyways that's all folks.

Both pairs of socks look great! Glad the ones you made turned out better for you. I'm sure your pal will enjoy them, even if it isn't merino. Don't worry :o)
