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 :)
