Mother's Day. Is Sunday. Oh No! Worsted Weight to the rescue.



For some reason my brain decided that Mother's Day is two weeks away. Unfortunately, it is wrong. Try four days. I am feverishly attempting to put together a pair of socks by noon time Sunday. Yikes. If only there were more minutes in the day...knitting minutes that is. Luckily my mother made it easy for me. She recently asked for a pair of socks to wear in the house (read...worsted weight...hurray!), and she likes her socks plain (read...k2p2 ribbing, all stockinette foot...hurray again!). Earlier tonight she saw me knitting them and asked what they were. I don't think she knows yet...let's hope I'm right. I've always been terrible at keeping a secret, but I am set on succeeding this time. This is my first pair of gift socks and I can't wait to wrap them! 'Course I have to finish knitting them first. wonderful = Mother's Day. Is Sunday. Oh No! Worsted Weight to the rescue. - jj
