Shout out for SockapalOOOza!

Okay guys am I pumped or what!I have THE perfect pal to send for...Her favorite color is blue and guess what I have lurking in my sock stash? Lorna's Laces, China Blue Shepard Sock yarn! I think its calling her name ;) I totally didn't read all the fine print when I signed up so the sock sister threw me for a loop...Not only do I get a secret pal, but I get a whole new buddy to boot!

If my pal is reading this now I wasn't very specific on my foot sizing and I apologize here are my measurements... From heel to big toe: 9" circumference of my foot at the arch: 9" circumference of my ankle: 9" okay that's wired! Never measured my foot before apparently my measurements will not be hard to remember!
So does anyone want to see what I finished during All My Children today?

Gotta admit he's a looker right? I haven't done the side seems yet, I hate to sew, and apparently I didn't read the fine print again and this little number had single crochet around it...WHAT? CROCHET? Are you insane? I will bring it to knitting group and have the ladies teach me to sew seams and single crochet edging....Consider this your warning ladies ;)
I am going to get a "pound of love" baby yarn and try to make some booties and hats for The Preemie Project this month... Remember I mentioned a certain contest in my previous post? Well I love contests, can't win if you don't enter!
Jenn showed me this neat tidbit: a SP exchange but a little different go here to read more about it, of course I signed up.It has to do with sock yarn!..I honestly feel like a blog, KAL and swap junkie now-a-days!
Once again I am soooo excited about sockapalOOOza and can't wait to start my pals socks.
P>S> I just discoverd that I have spell check in my blogger tool bar...now you guys don't have suffer through my typos anymore!..If I remember to use it ;)

Your sock pal is going to be so thrilled to receive her China Blue Lorna's Laces socks! And Boogie is definitely a looker. ;-) He's so close to being done! That blue is so vibrant and fantastic, too. Can't wait to see him all seamed up and edged! Take care! :-)

Yummy yarn you've picked out for your sock pal. I'm still searching for what I'll use. Crochet edging is not as hard as it sounds (or as scary). It's already looking great!
