“M” is for Mom. I’ll probably never put up a picture of my Mom on here. But, I like this one and I completed these socks for my Mom while visiting her this past week. My Mom is my favorite person to knit for besides myself of course (evil, right? but I adore handknit socks). And I have a lot of fun with her. In the really fun times together, we giggle and giggle together. And she’s always ready with a smile. Of course, she’s there for me. So, “M” is for Mom. -By the way, her birthday (was Monday) gift was an iPod! I got her an iPod Nano but forgot to take any pictures of it before I came home. She’s enjoying it though, yay!
The socks that my Mom is wearing are the Stripes On The Go socks from summer (I think).
I tried to Photoshop them a bit to adjust the light but it didn’t seem to help much. Sorry about that. One more recent shot up close, though a bit blurred from knitting.
The sock yarn is Trekking XXL, which I adore. One of my own pairs that I wear hard are from Trekking. I knit these on two circulars, Addi’s US#2, cuff down. And I thought they were going to be for me at first but I knit the first one a bit short. Then, when my Mom said she liked them after seeing them on Flickr (in a way better picture than the ones I’ve posted, sorry about that), I decided that she should have them!
Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! It’s my favorite holiday, by the way. F-a-v-o-r-i-t-e! See you tomorrow, full and happy.
