Sockapalooza!

I've been matched and have been trying to come up with an pattern that will match my spoilee's preferences. She's not a fan of the heel flap which is all I know so that will be a fun challenge (and a good reason) to learn short row heels. All the patterns I'm finding for short row heels tend to be toe up which is also a new area for me. So I may be learning quite a bit with this!

It's a lot of fun to work with someone's preferences and find a project you think... you hope... will suit their tastes. I think I have narrowed down the yarn options to two different ones.

In the meantime, I'm anxious to finish up my current sock project but my finals are not making that possible. I am counting down to Sunday night...

Hello, this is your mystery sock pal:-) I just wanted to drop you a little note that I've already started knitting... good thing you left some good hints on your yarn preferences on your blog!
Greetings from far, far away:-)

Thanks for contacting me, mystery sock pal. This should be a lot of fun!

I better get started on mine :) I'm still picking out the right yarn.
