Here is the wonderful sock I received from tattooedcrafter. I love the colours and it fits perfect too. She dyed the yarn herself and it smells wonderful Cheesy.


 eta: I might try to take a few better photo's if I can get some daylight, the colours are even brighter than the picture shows, I really love it, I've been walking around with one incredibly warm and colourfull foot all day Grin

I'm so sorry I missed this--I've been stalking you guys for a while, and I'm so glad the gallery's up!  I love the socks that have been received so far; well done!  They're gorgeous, and they look like so much fun to wear. Grin

I hope there's another round in the offing!

I received my 2nd dobby sock swap from honeyd.  Its hard to take pictures of your own feet! Plus she sent me some super cool handspun yarn. It is inspiring me to get my wheel out and spin some yarn up this weekend.

Hi everyone!

Sorry I've been an absentee organizer on this swap - October turned out to be one crazy month (ft work + ft university + ft family = YIKES!). Thanks everyone for your patience.

I received some fantastic socks from honeyd and tattooedcrafter (if you guys have photos, feel free to post them - my camera cable is MIA right now, so it might be a few more days before I can get photos up). The socks are pretty and oh-so-cozy in the cooler weather we've been having. So thanks girls, I love them! (also, thank you, honeyd for the wonderful handspun yarn - so pretty!!)

Now for a status update - this is what I've got - if it is incorrect, please let me know:

christinacoghill - sent & received both socks/partners received
honeyd - sent & received both socks/partners received
irilab - sent & received both socks/partners received
tattooedcrafter - sent both socks, waiting to receive from 1 partner/partners received
madmatigan79 - sent & received both socks/1 partner waiting to receive

Let me know if there are any errors. If everything is correct, then I can go ahead and update swap feedback (everyone gets A+ of course!).

SO here is the sock I sent to Madmatigan79, used harry potter colors, dark red and goldish, I don't have any really good pictures but you can get the general idea.



this picture shows the colors a little better, the one I used on htis sock is on the far left, the other ones I used on irilabs



I hope Madmatigan79 can get some better pictures.

I finaly got my wonderful sock from Madmatigan79, I love it, it fits great, now I have an awsome pair of mis matched socks.
I don't know if you can tell in the picture but the sock is bright blue, which happens to be the exact same color as a blanket I'm making for my dad, purple and green.

Feedback updated! Please let me know if there are any problems!

Thanks, everyone, for a fun swap! (anyone else have pics to post?)

Tattooedcrafter: I'm glad that sock finally made it there! Looks like it fits alright (I was a bit concerned about the size - I didn't take the stitch pattern into account when I knit my swatch, so the gauge was off a bit)
