And more socks...

How about a sock knitting race....

Ready.
Set.
Knit!

I have been eyeing the Log Cabin socks from Handknit Holidays. I was going to make a couple of pair for christmas gifts...but I haven't knit anything for my fellow knitting sister MA (she really just dabbles in knitting). So, with her birthday passing this weekend...I thought these would be great. She is frequently in town for work and her feet are always ice cold.
They are super thick socks, perfect for around the house. I just hope she doesn't slip on her hardwood floors and sue me....ha...you know how lawyers are...

Anyway, she calls me Wednesday to say she will be in town Thursday night for work Friday.

KNIT KNIT KNIT.

Well, Wednesday I had to take a migraine pill, so there was some lying around knitting...and knitting...and resting...and closing my eyes for a moment...and knitting...until I came up with this.



Yeah, that's right...an entire sock in a day.
Mind you, it is worsted weight yarn and being knit on US#5 needles...so it knits up pretty quick.

Here I am yesterday...for those of you who requested the "lying down knitting" shot...



Yes dad, the housework was done...the kiddies attended to...dinner on the stove...
Did I finish the pair....

Pretty socks. I like to lie down and knit too although I rarely get the chance.

Marisa said...

Those socks have been on my list for a while. Dare I cast on for another project in the middle of my christmas knitting?

I've had those on my list ever since the book came out. Now you've got me thinking to make a few pairs for Christmas gifts.
I love the color you used. What is the yarn?
