And I Cast On…

A new pair of socks. 

My parents were here for the weekend and I had two pairs of brand new hand knit socks that I hadnt really knit for any reason other then I wanted to knit them.  My sock drawer is full so these were just hanging out looking for a home.  I gave Eowyn socks to my stepmom (she’s totally knitworthy) and Hootenanny to my dad.  But I didn’t have a pair to give to my baby sister (not that she’s much of a baby anymore…17 I can’t beleive it).  So before they left this morning, I had her pick out some yarn to knit her a pair.  Of course she picks out Cephalopod Skinny Bugga in Sandworm, my favorite.  But she’s knitworthy too so it’s worth it to use my fancy yarn for her.  Merino & cashmere… and the color is beautiful.  Who wouldn’t like it?!

Hubbs and I ran out this morning and did our errands before everyone gets out of church and then it was back to the house.  I was watching the end of a movie and not doing anything when I realized that I could be knitting.  I’ve been wanting to cast on for a pair of socks despite my large number of  WIPS. So I cast on for Aliso Creek for my sister.  These socks are going to be georgous.  I can’t wait to get them done and sent off to her.
