Sock Blank swap

Check it out! I joined a Ravelry group to swap Knit Picks sock blanks, and the moderator was my upstream partner! Melanie sent me this blank she hand painted, and she must have done some snooping* on my blog, because she also sent me 2 different kinds of dark chocolates! Thank you, Melanie!!!

I have my blanks (I ordered 3), but am waiting until after the test to paint them. I have until August 3rd to send one to my downstream pal, but hopefully will do it this weekend or early next week :)

Check out the group if you're so inclined. There will be a KAL to knit up the sock blank you received, plus there's talk of doing seasonal / quarterly swaps!

*I'll have to check my blog stats and see who my visitors have been lately - it always fascinates me to see where everyone is from. I know I have some lurkers, so leave me a message and say hi! I'll check out your blog and add you as a Ravelry friend if you're a member :)

That is a cool sock blank.... these are a totally neat idea! I have not bought anything from KP in a while.. sock yarn will be something that I get soon. I can't wait to see how they knit up! Are you going to ball it up, or knit from the blank?

Oh that looks like such fun! Where did you get the blanks from? Knitpicks? I think I've seen some from Webs too. How is the yarn? Is it soft. Chocolate looks yummy too! Such good luck in swap partners!
