( in case you can’t read the picture)

Dear Janine,

I am searching the whole, wide, world, just for the right yarn & pattern for your socks. My son is quite miffed that I am sending postcards to you and not to him! Can you believe some knitters have finished their socks? OVER-ACHEIVERS!

and it is signed with a heart, a sock and pal

Isn’t it wonderful :-)

I know it isn’t supposed to be a secretpal swap per se, but it is lovely to hear from my sock pal and that she is taking such care choosing my yarn and pattern ;-)

On my side of the sockapalooza street, I have plied the yarn and it looks lovely, not at all what I was anticipating but that’s the beauty of hand spinning – you’re never quite sure what you’re gonna get.

I would post a pic, but I am pretty sure my sockpal reads the blog so I don’t want to give her too many clues just in case.

I promise to publish photos of the yarn and the finished sock once the swap is over so as not to spoil the suprise :-)

In the meantime there is a prize to give out!

I put all the names of our kind sponsors in a hat and the name that came out was……

AMYP – I will send you an email to get you snail mail addy so I can send you a little token of our appriciation.

Have a good bank holiday weekend – the weather forecast for here is dire! Rain thunder, lots of wind ah well back to winter again :-)

    What a fun pal you have! Can’t wait to see your sock yarn all spun and knitted up. Have a great weekend, it’s supposed to storm here all weekend too.

    ohhh the mystery deepens – what a fun sock pal you got.
    It is a bank holiday for you and Memorial Day weekend for us – but our forecast is better than yours this time. Warm and sunny — have a bar-b-que to go to on Sunday -
