My Sockapaloooza socks have arrived! All the way from Texas and made by the very talented Olga. They are a perfect fit and I absolutely adore the colours! The yarn is Hill Country Yarn in the Pecan Orchard colourway. Its a hard colour to photograph but I think these flashless pics are close. The flash makes the colour way too bright!
Look at the fancy pants heel!
I got all teary-eyed when I opened them! I really enjoyed making my pal's socks and receiving these has really made, well, my whole year! What a shame it's actually decided to be spring finally and it's just a bit too warm to wear them. I think I just might wear them anyway - they are too gorgeous not to!
Keeping in with the green theme, it was a beautiful morning and I snapped a few pics of the fields at the back of my house. There was the slightest bit of mist over the river and I could hear a cuckoo calling as I was drinking in the morning. Fabulous!
