Sockapalooza Socks that Rock!




Dear Sockapalooza Pal,

Here are your STR Love-in-Idleness socks. I know. I know. The color is not pretty at all. Yes, I know. The BFF sock pattern by Cookie A. is mediocre. And they probably won't fit. Because they seem to fit me absolutely perfectly, and I'm sure your feet aren't exactly the same size as mine. Nope, just impossible. I apologize in advance. I would have made you a different pair, but there is a deadline. Feel free to send them back though and I will gladly replace them with a pair that is not so soft and squishy.

Sincerely,
Irishgirlieknits


So, what do you think? You think I can convince her that this is not a gorgeous colorway? And that the pattern is kinda blah? Just teasing. I've already ordered a skein of Love-in-Idleness for my stash and I hope my pal LOVES them as much as I do! And I loved this pattern too!

July has seemed to be the month of socks. I started with three socks on the needles and now have none. Off to go remedy that situation!

Happy Sockapalooza!!!! xoxox Irishgirlieknits

Those are just gorgeous! I'm in love with those colors.

I think you're on to something with the sock pal socks that fit you perfectly. My sock pal's socks fit me perfectly too. As a matter of fact, they were the best-fitting socks I'd ever knit. I wonder what's up with that.

Sigh, those are for me right? Gorgeous socks there. Good luck trying to get your pal to send them back, if they are mine, tough cookies! ;)

I was wondering why I had some folks coming to my blog from here! So cool! It really made my day to see mine suggested. :)


Those socks!!! Love them! :)

For a second, I thought you were serious! And I was questioning your judgment.

Nice job those are gorgeous and I'm sure your pal will love them!

Emma said...

You have a lucky pal. She (or he) will love them!

Robin said...

Those are lovely socks!

Great, great socks! Makes me want to pull out my Love-in-Idleness and cast on.

Disco said...

Eew, IrishGirlie, I'm surprised at you making such ugly socks. Hideous colour and I bet that yarn is so scratchy too. You're right - she won't like them at all. Ick

YAY!!! Love the "Love in Idleness" and love the BFF socks! It really is a great pattern and I'm looking forward to eventually making a pair myself. Still gotta order that colorway, which should be very soon...just waiting on my friend to give me her order...oh yeah, and get paid, too! I hate being paid only once a month!

Those are so great!

Oops, too bad they fit perfectly! And I love the yarn.

And even if they weren't exactly right for me, my daughter is standing ready to claim them for herself.

Thanks so much for the socks. They are fantastic!

Love in Idleness is gorgeous! My Der Frawds were LII--it's cool to see it knit up a different way!

Lucky pal!

Stell said...

if she didn't want them (lol) then my feet are just the right size, and those colours - well they match just what i'm wearing - if you know what i mean ...
