Socks & yet more socks

Just before Christmas after finishing all the Christmas bedsocks I cast on for a pair for myself. This is as far as I've got across the Christmas period:

two toe up socks in progress
Little Shell Rib feet

Pattern: Little Shell Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks.

I'm now ready to do the short row heel & then work up the leg. However it is MIL's 60th birthday on the 24th & she's a keen walker so I've cast on a pair for her using this from my stash continuing with my socks from stash pledge & the others are on hold:

Opal Rainforest Owl 6ply
Opal Rainforest Owl 6ply

I'll be using the Broad Spiral Ribbing from More Sensational Knitted Socks.

Wow I really admire sock knitters- I have SSS really bad! In fact I have terminal startitis too! Those 'owl' socks will be lovely no doubt, but I adore those you're making for yourself- the colour is yummy!

Lovely cheerful socks for yourself, and is that a soctopus stitch marker I see? You are kind to stop those and knit for MIL.

Best wishes for a happy healthy 2008
