Sockpal Socks!

I finished up my sockpal socks - here they are...



And here's a closeup...



The pictures are not so good - I'm using my camera phone. These are lacy socks made of Cascade fixation - a wonderful and fun stretchy sock yarn. I actually adore these socks and was perhaps just a bit tempted to keep them for myself and send my sockpal something, mmmm, perhaps a bit less snuggly on the foot. But, I remembered the lovely and beautiful socks I received from my first sockpal and grew excited to share these new delicious socks with someone else!

These socks have had a fairly festive life (for socks); they've travelled all over New York City! They spend every morning and every evening on the E train from Chelsea to Rockefeller Center and back. Sometimes they went to City75 to pick up a little lunch. They often visited my local branch of the New York Public Library. They went to Fire Island for a few weekend getaways and they really seemed to enjoy their time relaxing on the outdoor patio of Half King.

Don't worry sockpal - I promise to wash them first. I hope you enjoy them!

I love the story behind the socks, their life history, as it were. It's a nice way to think back on your projects!

Look good, by the way!
