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.
