Sockapalooza Sock update. . .

Here is an update on my sockapalooza socks. The Genevieve sock is coming along really well. The yarn shows off the cables beautifully. I did put a longer leg on these and what's funny is I still have a ton of yarn left for the foot. Weird eh? I have turned the heel and finished the gusset on the first socks. Below is a pic of it on my sock blocker. I am in love with this yarn!! It is "Spring Breeze" in classic merino by Fearless Fiber. her yarn is amazing! Her superwash sock yarn comes with 550 yards and is $16! The classica merino is also $16 and has 410 yards. I highly suggest you try her yarn, it's wonderful! She also has beautiful colourways!

Okay, I'm done. hahahahaha


Okay, so I've updated this post with more pics. Today mac & I went to the IC Dog Park at 1pm.. It was sunny & warm, so we didn't stay too long. Here is a wonderful pic of Mac looking around. Sorry, it was too cute not to post.

Below are pics of the sock on my foot. Yes, I have big ankles. . . .thanks for pointing that out. Anyways. I'm loving how the colour compliments the cables. I think it's beautiful. =) My pal has feet that are slightly shorter than mine, so I hope they'll fit her fine. =) What do you guys think of the progress so far? Pretty, eh?

Man, I want a sock blocker now. Their so nifty.
$16, hmmm.. maybe i'll check it out. I recently check out, or whatever that luster alpaca was from, and they have cheap yarn! I just couldn't figure out why you couldn't add a couple of different items in your cart at the same time.... it would erase the first item after you select a new item. *sigh*.
I really want to go to the fiber faire this July. Maybe i'll see you there? (since you're working there.)
