In progress – My first pair of adult sized socks

Even though it doesn’t feel at all like Christmas (but when does it on a tropical island!), I’ve been thinking ahead to the holidays and gift preparation. The baby is due in December and I’ve been trying to prepare some things ahead of time to make his or her arrival (and myself) a little more calm. I had such a great time making all the baby socks last month, that I decided to knit a few pairs of adult socks for the ladies in my life. So my first pair is for my mother, who, bless her heart, has always had such a positive response to every handmade gift I’ve given to her. She loves rich, saturated colors, so I decided to go with Coquette by Madelinetosh. My second daughter has a sweater in the same colorway that I knit her last winter (? ok, Christmas time – it was still in the 80s here) so I knew the color would be perfect. It has subtle color variations, so it would work well with a more complicated pattern, but I like the idea of having a stretchy ribbed sock to ensure a good fit. The pattern is the Basic Ribbed Sock and so far it looks stretchy and comfortable – just what I was going for! I’m not a very fast knitter, so I’m hoping I can get done with this pair in a reasonable amount of time, but so far I’m really enjoying sock knitting. And if they turn out well, then I’d like to knit the next pair for my mother in law! 🙂
