Halloween Surprises

It is always great fun to get packages - especially when they are hand knit gifts.
Today brought a perfect gift - Toasty Toes socks from Gracie.
Even my kitties were excited when I opened this box of goodies - they were trying to figure out how to get the wrappers off those sweet tarts. hee hee

The weather turned gnarly last night here, dropping from a previous day's high of 70 degrees, to the mid teens last night. Frost on the windows and all the plants outside makes it the perfect Halloween - and the perfect scene for showing off my new warm tootsies!

Thank you Gracie, for these gorgeous socks. They fit perfectly. And the color is divine. They are beautifully knit as well. I am one lucky sock pal. I am not sure how she got these knit up so fast, given all the other excitment in her life... the baby on the way ! - but I am delighted that she did. Thank you.
She included a bunch of Halloween goodies, and even a teensy Frankenstein finger puppet (which is going to my office for the kids to play with. hah!)

What a wonderful sock swap. I had a great time - thank you, once again Amanda, for hosting all this fun! I luvs me my new socks!! Yippeee...

I was so busy admiring the beautiful socks, that I scarcely noticed the frost on the window. Those socks arrived at the perfect time!

The socks do make your toes took toasty;-) Look at the frost on your window! It seems as if TT socks are arriving just in time!

Beautiful socks! Wow - and perfect timing as well.

Thanks for your comments - I think I will save the leftover roving until I know what I am doing with the wheel. It is too pretty and I don't want to ruin it... I need to start with something you didn't put so much work into :-)

Those look perfect for the frosty weather! Such a great swap pal - and all those sweet tarts! YUM!

Oh good! I'm so so so so so glad that they fit!!! I think that is always the hardest part whenever I make socks for someone else!

I love that yarn too, Brooklyn Handspun does a great job with color.

I've had a hard time prying Olive away from the Sweet Tarts as well. My dog is odd liking them!

Those are really lovely socks Teyani - just lovely. They look so great on your feet - I hope they stayed up there for a bit (relaxing I mean!). You did well!
