Decisions decisions

Tough knitting decisions around here.

1. I really, really want to finish Sock #2 of my new Sock-a-licious design, Sweet Home.

2. But it is Father's Day this Sunday. Dad needs some socks. Well, he actually wants me to mend the socks with the holes, but that doesn't sound like fun. Just not sure I can whip up a pair of Uncle Frank socks by Sunday.

And I really want to keep working on these.

3. But then next week, I need to knit another pair of baby socks for my bestest friend in the whole wide world (we've been friends since we were 6!!). A baby boy, her first! So I was thinking of making wee Uncle Frank socks.

Of course, in true knitterly fashion, somewhere deep down I think I can knit all three. Who am I kidding?

Happy Decision Making!

Oh Boy another beautiful sock design. I just finished my Winnie's yesterday too. These new socks (sock?) is really pretty. I like your style of patterns you come up with. Yeah.
I vote for the baby socks to be done first. Babies need nice warm feet.

I vote dad socks myself! Good luck!

For the Dad problem- wrap up the yarn and needles and give him that- tell him that they represent the pair of socks that is to come!

Love the new design. That's quite a dilemma, but gifts can always be late!

Beautiful new design. I say give Dad what he wants - you can mend while y'all chat on Sunday. Then, make him another pair of socks right after you finish the new ones and the wee ones...

If we can sleep walk, why not sleep knit?

Of course you can do it! Those are sure pretty!!! It would probably mean the most to Dad to mend his socks...sorry! That would be quicker too...that way you can get the baby socks done...congrats to the new baby mama!

These socks are so lovely!! Is that yarn available in stores yet, or have I not looked in the right places? :)

I wouldn't be surprised in the least if you pulled off all three!

I love Sweet Home. Baby sized Uncle Frank's would be wonderful. Can't wait to see what all you accomplish. g
