Then, please take a look at this:
You know, the feeling of receiving a knitted gift is just wonderful. Being aware of this, I started my preparation for Sockapaloooza - yarns, checked; needles, checked; pattern, checked:
I had every intention of finishing the grey socks for Husband first. However, I've been having quite some frustration in trying to get them done right. So, I thought it a good idea to take a break from them and started working on the socks for my sock pal. And for the welfare of my sock pal, I also thought it a good idea for me to follow a pattern instead of trying to work out one of my own ... hahaha ... As I browsed through Nancy Bush's latest sock book, I just felt that this is the perfect pattern for the red yarn. Before dinner, I finished knitting the cuff:
I think I should express my gratitude to Alison and all the sock sisters for their thoughfulness in the organization of Sockapaloooza. At least in my case, they paired me up with a sock pal who has similar foot measurements as my own ... and this is going to make the knitting a lot easier. Thanks for the wonderful work!
