I'm the luckiest girl in the world! My Sockapalooza pal . . . I'm speechless and a little teary . . . she is soooo amazing! Not only did she make a beautiful pair of socks that fit perfectly, but she included a knitter's dream care-package with the socks.

My Pal: I was very fortunate to get Christine aka cpul17 on Ravelry and dillydallyknitter on blogspot as my SP4 Pal.

The socks:

Absolutely gorgeous Retro Rib Socks by Evelyn Clark in Claudia Handpainted "Buckeye" colorway. So Handsome!

The rest of the story: I was so glad Tony was there to revive me because the consequences could have been dire had I opened my box alone. Included with my socks: STR lightweight in "Stormy Weather;" Super cute tape measure; a fabulous post card from San Francisco (a place I've always wanted to see) which will soon have a spot on the wall at home; and Sox Stix by Lantern Moon 2.25 mm Blondewood. What a dream.

Thank you, Christine. You are too much!

Oh my goodness, that is some serious booty. You would have to look quite a while to find something prettier than the STR Stormy Weather.
