The Christmas socks are coming along wonderfully. In fact the sock that is pictures is all finished and I am about 2 inches into sock number two!! Once this pair is finished I am only going to have 4 more knitted gifts to HAVE to have finished, anything else is just icing on the cake.
I have been wondering what knit to do for my oldest daughter, I would love it to be something she would wear, she is so sweet and would be so kind about whatever I knitted for her, but really I want her to use it. I had been toying with a scarf, but the thing is, is we live where the winters rarely get into the 40's for a high. She just doesn't have a need for a scarf, and she already has a shawl. Then, I found it, at least I think I did. The poor girl gets icy feet, what about these socks? Heavier weight yarn (which I have and it matches the sweaters I made for Fiona and Nuala) so they will keep her toes nice and cozy. Anyway, at the moment, that is the plan.
PS here are a couple photos of Fiona at her first soccer game, such a cutie
