Handknit socks in 4 days

I almost boogered it up this year. Oma's birthday comes the same time every year so you would think I'd have it down by now but no. Wednesday I realized her day was Sunday- 4 days away, crap. I'd already purchased the yarn specifically for her it was just a matter of getting it done. I knit her socks for Christmas and her birthday because 1. she loves them so much and tells me. 2. she had chemo a few years ago and hand knit socks are good for the problem feet.

My gauge changed a little as I knit last night at the Wings game (indoor lacrosse), but I steam blocked them and it was good.

Gifted this morning and modeled for pics as long as I didn't get her whole self in pj's ;)


Now to get my plan together for the Jr. Great Books group starting this week and I'll feel like I'm finally digging out of the hole.
