Remember the parcel I was talking about? Now, what was inside? Look, somehow the parcel's content looks strangely familiar.
[I love off-topic boxes when it comes to gift wrapping]
What can I say - I have the best sockpal of all, the Queen of sockapaltwoza so to speak: Lovely Alison from the blue blog. Woohoo!
Alison, you rock!
These socks are absolutely fantastic! My feet have never had the pleasure to touch yarn sooo soft and luscious. And the colour [sigh] the colour! Alison, you are absolutely right, this is exactly my colour! And as you all expect from Alison, they are knitted up in uttermost perfection. If you will excuse the pun, they fit like a glove.. hehe..

Due to the disrupted internet connection over here, I couldn't run and post about my precious immediatly. Nice for me though, for I could enjoy some quality time with these delicious socks.
We watched a video together (Carnivale) and they seem to be pretty tolerant to highly confusing input. very well.. They appeared not to be a tiny bit jealous and so I worked on knitting up some friends. And finally, they are so alluring that - head over heels in love - I had no objections: to bed together on the first date!
They are fabulous! I have to thank you so much, Alison. The whole sock exchange was so much fun. I found loads of interesting blogs, more than I can ever follow. I had contact with the nicest imaginable knitters and I learned so much about sock knitting.
What I couldn't predict at all was the overwhelming sensation of receiving something that a stranger has knitted - for me! All the planning, all the work. Amazing... Nobody ever knitted something for me before. (Well, the cute smurf my mom made for me of course, but I have to admit that I did not cherish it as something 'knitted' back then)
But... excuse me now, I have to stop typing and pay full attention to my new socks. Need both hands to pet them...
Wait, I almost forgot to mention that Alison sent some lovely yarn with the socks. This is some exclusive stuff, literally, because it's part of a limited collection made by Ewa. And it gets better and better, I will soon be the most happy owner of two skeins of this luxury yarn because I am awaiting a swap yarn from Dorothee. Am I the happiest girl in the world for now? Yes, I am.
