Just in time to claim them as 2006 FOs and not 2007. And it does indeed look like blocking will take care of the identical-everything-not-matching problem, yay!
And I FINALLY got my very own Very Best Sock Kit and I love it. The yarn is Rosie, and the bag is a very pretty bright red/pink abstract swirly wave pattern with shimmery gold highlights. Maybe tomorrow (ie today in the morning) I'll try to post a picture. (I say I finally got it because the shipping ended up taking forever due to the big snowstorm in Colorado, then when it did finally arrive (at my workplace) I was on vacation and the office was closed anyway. But today there was a community event in the school gym and I managed to sneak into the teachers' room and *yoink* my package.)
My Rosie looks much less pink/red and more cream, green and blue than the picture I linked to...but I like it better this way. How it knits up remains to be seen, but it sure is pretty!
