My friend Tim has been knitting up a storm this winter. His usual focus is socks and I certainly can't complain about that because I am the extremely grateful recipicient of the most adorable striped sparkly socks!
And I'm not the only lucky one. Tim was generous enough to give our friend Christine aka TreasureGoddess a pair of sparkly socks as well! I know she is just as appreciative as I am.
If you look closely at my socks, you will see that they are not an exact match of each other. The toes, heels and cuffs are different and the stripes are as well. I know that Tim did this to make me twitchy. I may or may not be known as someone who tries to knit my own socks to match each other exactly. Perhap even obsessively so? Yes, guilty as charged.
Getting handknit socks as a gift is a wonderful thing. I like to think of them as hugs for your feet. And it is even more special to me because as a knitter, very rarely does anyone knit for me!
So I love my new sparkly purple striped socks. They are made of awesome!
