First, Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays. I gave dad a pair for Christmas, and he loved them so much, he wanted another pair. Another EXACT pair. Same yarn and everything (Cascade Pastaza). I've been dreading making the exact same thing, but once I got started, I remembered enjoying knitting socks on a size 6 needle! I'm just about to turn the heel on the first sock.
Here's an up-close look. Purty! And, silly knit-blogger me was so excited when Cara posted a "Have fun!" comment on my last post. Her work is amazing!
I think the drop stitches will look a bit nicer once its blocked.
Wow, lots of weekend knitting, right? Well, that's because yesterday we drove up to Sacramento (love a two hour car ride if I don't have to drive!) to visit my little nephew!! He was born on Monday (two weeks early!)! Here's some pics of the little guy!
Don't worry, he woke up plenty throughout the day. I just loved these pictures!! I'm a biased Auntie, I know. But isn't he adorable?!
