Its July 1st! And the Socks that Rawk Knitalong for the Cotty and Dippers sock has officially begun! I am super excited to see all the pretty Cotty socks! Thank you all so much for your support!
I'm casting on a pair for my mom. She said she grabbed from the top of her STR stash from Stitches a few years ago and I could pick. Well, actually, she is hoping for three pairs of socks. We'll have to see about that.
I picked this Rare Gems skein to use for her Cotty Socks. Seriously, mom doesn't quite knit socks yet, but she's got a few Rare Gems in her stash. Gotta love it! I think I can take credit for this!
I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures of my great-aunt Cotty, whom I named the socks after. I took these four years ago, right after my grandmother (her sister) had passed away, and when Bailey was just a few months old.
Bailey loved to sit by Cotty!
I wonder why!
What? The pizza?
Can you just tell that Bailey got a little bit of the crust?! hehehehe
Happy Cast-On Day!!
