it's simply a matter of knowing the right people

Just look at these darling socks my sweet, sweet friend Betty sent me all the way from Florida!



Along with all the other stuff she has going on in her busy life, she managed to find time to knit these beauties. They're so special that they even got to spend a day or two at German customs due to the Germans not being able to translate "socks". Or something.

Anyway, good things come to those who wait and my feet are actually looking forward to winter this year.

Those are way cool! I don't know how she makes 'em so purty, she's got magical fingers I think.

Cute, cute socks! Isn't self striping sock yarn the coolest stuff?

You toes will love 'em this winter!

They look beautiful because you are such a talented photographer. I think you ironed them, also!

I love those socks! I went to Ms. Macs as suggested below and laughed my head off at that video, thanks for the pointer.

Cozy, warm, colourful, fun socks! What a sweet gift :-) You're probably right about the German customs not being able to translate the word, though... "Vat are zoks??"

What a hoot reading through the comments! Betty and Dixie Peach have stars in their crowns for being able to knit like that AND give them away! Absolutely gorgeous! You realize I'll want to see them on your feet sometime this winter :)
