I had terrible trouble trying to post this last night (as did a few others, I see), so... hopefully it'll go through today. :)
Long-time sock knitter, newbie Sockapalooza participant, saying hello to the group! I'm quite excited about this (I guess just about everyone who signed up is, or else we wouldn't have signed up!) Just a bit about me ... I'm a 25-year-old living in Raleigh, NC, and I basically grew up in my mom's yarn store (Yarn Expressions in Huntsville, AL). I've been knitting off-and-on for about as long as I can remember, but the bug really bit me about two years ago, and I haven't really been able to put down the needles since then. Socks have always been my default project, so of course this is the perfect swap group for me. :)
My most recent pair of completed socks are my Aurelia Socks, which I designed myself and knit up using my own hand-dyed sock yarn.
My mom and I blog together over at Manning Knits.
So, anyway... hello!
