Sock Box!


I received my box from Jill, my Hurricane Sock Swap pal, about a week ago. Look at what wonderful things she put in for me! First of course, there was the sock:

Quill Lace!

The socks turned out beautifully, made with a hand-dyed yarn that Jill dyed herself just for me! *swoon*

Wanna know a secret? I love hand-winding center pull skeins!

Not only did I receive the beautiful sock and lovely, amazing hand-dyed yarn, I also got a box full of goodies:

What a lucky girl am I?

Needles, knitting accessories, a whole BOX full of Oatmeal Creme Pies (those were gobbled up in about a day and a half), and the sweetest little sewing tin you've ever seen! Just the perfect size for toting around a pair of socks in progress. : )

All in all, I rate this swap as a fabulous success! Jill, thanks again, you can be my swap partner anytime.

Till next time,


  1. Ah, if only we had hurricanes here...

  3. Love the sock! The box looks like fun but I'm glad we don't have hurricanes. :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope the anti humidity hairspray works for you. I've been to S. Fla in the summer. Oh. My. Goodness.

  4. Fun, I was Jill's partner and had the privilege of knitting her socks. I just tripped across your blog and thought I recognized those socks.
