One last thing about the missing socks, if the package were just lost and never to be seen again I wouldn't be really upset about it. Things get lost. The fact that someone who we don't know but all trust with our messages took the liberty of violating my privacy is just appaling. It's like someone breaking into your computer and reading your e-mails or stealing a wallet from a bag when you've hung your coat in a (guarded) wardobe.
Okay, enough about that. I have ordered some new nice sockyarn for you, Stariel, and I'm going to knit you even nicer socks.
So, that stolen pair was pair nr... 17 for the 52pair plunge? I think so. In Barcelona, where I had a wonderfull stay, I finished another pair. Here's nr. 18:
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, colorway River Run
Needles: 2,5 mm Inox
Pattern: Monkeys with all the purls knit.
and this is nr. 19:
Yarn: Trekking XXL Pro Natura Antraciet
Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational knitted socks
Needles: 2,5 mm bamboo
Seriously, working with this yarn was great and the pattern was awsome too. So far I can really recommend this yarn, but I'll have to wait and see how these will go through wash and wear.
