Sockapaloooza Finis!

I finished my sockapaloooza socks just in the nick of time! Last night I wove in the ends and blocked. I love them and hope my sock pal does too!! I am a little worried about the size, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Her foot is around 10″ long and these measure about 10.15″. She also has a 9″ measurement around the ball of her foot and I got a measurement of about 8.25″ with no stretch. I am sure there are lots of you out there that are in the same situation…. Its HARD if your foot is a totally different size because you lack the ability to try it on for size (which is the only way I’ve ever knit socks). You can see from some of the pre-washed/blocked pictures below, how big they are on me :)

And, look! They are all blocked and all ready to go!

Project specs:
Pattern: Embossed Leaves from Winter IK 2005
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns in Raspberry Limeade
Measurements: Made to fit a women’s US10.
Started: April 5, 2006
Finished: May 1, 2006
Other Details: I magic looped it once again and love how these came out. I don’t think I changed anything about the pattern. I used a slightly heavier yarn (a super heavy fingering weight/light sport weight and US2 needles).

    Well, the measurements are practically right, so I’ll just assume those are for me. Thanks so much Dani, I absolutely love them. I’ll be waiting by the mailbox. Really. And if they’re not for me? Well…I’ve got the yarn and I’ll have to make some myself. Sheesh.

    Absolutely lovely, Dani. They make my heart sing.

    Those socks are so pretty. I adore how the colours of the yarn resemble leaves and flowers at the same time in this leave lace pattern. Very neat. I’m hoping, I’m hoping.. the shoe size seems to be okay for me ;-) Anyway, great job and your sock pal will love them!
