Waiting for the Mailman

I know, I know, I won't be receiving my next Petals Collection installment for a few days, but a girl can still wait by the door for the mailman can't she? 

Did you notice, observant reader, that I'm wearing my finished Hydrangea socks?  I give these socks an A+.  Not only did the pattern hold my interest through both socks -- no SSS here -- but I love the look and fit of the finished socks.

Started: September 1, 2006
Finished: October 14, 2006
Pattern: Hydrangea Socks from The Petals Collection
Yarn: Sundara Yarn's Sock Yarn; Hydrangea
Needles: US 2; 1st sock on DPNs, 2nd on 2 circulars
Modifications: None!

Gorgeous! I wore mine to work the other day, and I felt like taking my shoes off, too!

You'll show us when the next kit comes won't you? Gotta agree - those ARE beautiful socks. Hmm, waiting by the door, aka stalking the mailperson for expected package containing yarn...:)

Beautiful color. Love the satisfaction of finishing a beautiful project from a great pattern. Then again, I love almost everything I finish, except those I rip :)

Isn't it nice to wear something you've made that you're supremely happy with? Nice socks. Maybe the mail carrier will be overwhelmed with them if/when he or she shows up.
