In Order :
I finished my Sock Wars sock and they are now on their way to my victim. Sorry for the bad photo but it was late and I was tired. They look MUCH better in person.
This was at the Post Office when my brother posted the parcel.
I am now officially out of Sock Wars. I am a bit sad but the socks are WONDERFUL, they fit BEAUTIFULLY, and the sweets are liquorice – the salty Dutch kind – I LOVE that stuff.
Now – the GREAT NEWS – I won a runner-up prize in the KNITTY calendar contest. All confidential about the pic right now, but I had to share with you. Miriam (whose husband did the photography) has already blogged about it. Now I just need to get them a high-res version, send them my snail mail, and they’ll send me STUFF! This is SO AMAZING – I don’t usually win competitions, and considering that life has been quite stressful lately, this is a welcome break.
