Christmas morning surprise

At around 9:30 Christmas morning, the buzzer rang from the front door of my apartment building. Not expecting any company, I couldn't imagine who it could be. Turns out it was the post office with a special delivery! I was so surprised and amazed that Sundara had gone to the expense and trouble to send the sock kit by special delivery, but it really did make me happy since the sock club membership was a Christmas present for me from my family. :) Very, very happy to be here!

Old Socks, New Yarn!


I just finished the red "Autumn Foliage" socks in what was my favorite colorway yet, but then Sundara just surprised me with this latest "Lenten Rose" color and my fickle knitting heart has a new favorite.

The red socks (pictured) were made with a lacy rib of my own design, and I may do the same with the Lenten Rose, but Sundara's designs are still very nice and have gone into my collection folder. Thank you, Sundara, for never failing to give us the benefit of your artistic creativity, in spite of the wild weather!

Glad to be here!

Hi! Wow, I've been viewing this blog since the very beginning and was so glad to get involved this time! I love this color and everything that is included in the kit is just so awesome!

Nice job Sundara!

Another Newbie!

I, too, am a new member of the Petals Collection Sock Club and am very excited to be here. I adore the Lenten Rose Colorway, although I also think I will opt for a different pattern. I'm looking forward to hearing about what others will be doing with this luscious skein.

So excited!

Hi-
I'm new to the KAL and to the sock club. And I'm super excited to be here! YAY!

The first package was so pretty. Hopefully, I'll finish the socks I'm working on this weekend so I can cast on soon.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello.

Welcome, New Knitters!

Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone! As you know, the second half of the Petals Collection sock club began with this month's shipment. We have quite a few new members in the knitalong: Alyssa, Annmarie, Carrie, Diana, Elise, Jennifer W., Naomi, Operakatz, Susan, Tiennie, Valerie, and Vanessa. Many of these new members have blogs, which are linked in the sidebar. Drop by and say hi!

Since finishing my Calla Lily socks, my other Sundara sock yarns have remained untouched. I am hoping to remedy that in the New Year! I too love the Lenten Rose yarn that came in the December package, though I am thinking of using another pattern for it. Just a reminder: if you use your yarn to complete a different project than the pattern Sundara sent, you are strongly encouraged to post about it! Sundara specifically mentioned to me that she would like to see all the ways that knitters use her yarn.

Happy New Year, and Happy Knitting!

So gorgeous!

Sundara: I received my beautiful yarn and package on Saturday and was overwhelmed. Every detail of the package and yarn was so meticulously thought out. I almost hated to open everything but desire for beautiful yarn spurred me on! I cannot wait to try my hand at this new sock pattern. Thank you again!!

Thank you Sundara!

I just joined the second half of the Petals Collection and received my first installment today. All I can say is that it's one of my most favorite flowers too! A huge thank you to Sundara who has overcome all those horrendous weather problems to get this mailing out. We appreciate it!!!!!

Just off now to put the yarn on the swift!
