Socks, Skein, Scraps and Sisterly Love!!!

I have been busy mailing bags to my lovely customers and I was surprised to get a box in the mail too. I had forgot that my sister said that she was going to send me a box. It is so nice to have a sister who love the same things that I do! I sent her Wollmeise Sock yarn in "Sultan" for her birthday and she knit me socks with it. They fit perfectly. Am I a lucky girl or what? (There is a better picture of the socks that she took and posted on her ravelry page, the sun washed out the color in my picture, check them out I'll wait)I also got a full skein of Rio de la Plata sock yarn and a bunch of scraps. I can totally make a couple pair of footies, good thing I have small feet. If I don't have enough for my feet I always have smaller feet to knit for in this house...Cierra will be one lucky girl too :)
Clockwise: Rio de la Plata, Brooklyn Handspun in Tonya, Yarn Pirate in Rosie, dkKnits - blue square skiing, Lorna's Laces that she over dyed with teal acid dye, Yarn Pirate in Isobel & a little bit of Yarntini in Good to be Girl colorway.
Thanks Shane. Knitting sisters rock!!!
In shop news: I am steady making more Punky Pouches and Circular Needle Clutches as sets. I will be updating the shop soon.
Thanks again for all your nice comments, convos, and good luck wishes.

Lucky you! I agree knitting sisters totally rock.

I was just ogling your pouches and bags today. I added you as a favorite on Etsy so I can come back and treat myself someday :)

Ohh the socks are very cool indeed. I don't care for knitting socks but these maybe I'll just put these in my queue just in case I change my mind.
