A Sock of My Own
Unaware of who she was making it for, I drooled over Pam's mosaic sock on her blog and Flickr page. You can imagine the jubilation when the selfsame sock arrived in my mailbox, along with enough yarn, and instructions to make the second. Lucky, lucky, lucky me!! She couldn't have pleased my color loving eye any more.
Just look at that fabulous contrast of red and turquoise! Magnificent. Now look at the perfect little stripes on the foot, and how they balance so beautifully the mosaic pattern on the top. Love.
Pam based this sock on the mosaic pattern from Kate at Zeitgeist Yarns' Ode to Eames socks (see her sidebar).
How about the fit? This sock is not made for my daughters with their fragile little "blue-blood" ankles and narrow feet, no it is knit to the specifications of my sturdy peasant gams and toes. Wheeee!!!
Not only did I get the sock, enough yarn to make the mate and precisely written instructions, but Pam also included a project bag large enough for a good bit of knitting, in a beautiful print.
charming gift tags (poorly photographed here by me) from string | THEORY.
I cannot begin to express how thrilled I am with this package.
Now to find the time to knit that mate.
