  1. Your socks are lovely. I love the color of the blue ones. Hopefully you will receive your pair of socks soon. Can't wait to see what you get.

    1. Thanks! I am looking forward to seeing my socks but the longer it takes to get them the longer I stay "alive" in the game :)

  2. Some really gorgeous socks and best of luck with the secret design.

  3. Sock Sniper sounds like fun. I did Hat Wars once, but it all seemed to hinge on your postal service. I survived into additional rounds solely because our Canadian mail delivery is so unreliable. Lovely socks in those green!

    1. I love the green too!! This game does depend on postal services especially since it is an international game!!

  4. Your socks look great. I like the blue ones :)

  5. Beautiful socks! Makes me want to finally finish mine. :)
