Mother In-Law Socks

Okay, she's not my mother-in-law yet. Maybe that's why I'm trying to kiss up by knitting socks for her. Even worse, I'm trying to crank a pair out in 2 weeks and I chose the somewhat complicated Traveler's Stockings from Nancy Bush's Knitting On The Road book - your basic in-law nightmare. Tomorrow's the big day and, needless to say, socks won't be finished - I'll just have to show her my progress and make some noises about measuring her feet before I finish the product. Let's hope that comes across as well-meaning and I intend it.
In the meantime, I'm begging to the knitting Gods that my Denise needle set arrives soon and I can start a couple of sweater projects that I've been waiting to do. I definitely don't want to have to seam any more knits than I can help.
Maybe mom's wool will show up soon, too and I can at least start planning a project for it.
Maybe, maybe, maybe!!

Hello World!
This is the first entry into my new knitting blog. Mostly this will be a place to post pictures and hopefully share techniques with other knitters. Case in point- here is link to a picture of my nephew Bobby showing off the socks I sent over this spring. Adorable, simple to knit and extremely rewarding to see on the wearer ;)
