and the socks went well. I got my sister The Very Best Sock Kit from Tangle (I want to put in a link but I don't have the "edit html" thingy - maybe because I'm on a Mac? I'll edit it later. Okay, that should be fixed now...) instead of actual socks, and my sister's boyfriend's socks were only half done and my dad's a little more than a quarter. But the boyfriend sock fit, and I'm turning the heel on the second one RIGHT NOW. Then to finish my dad's socks... then knit a hat for my sweetie that matches the scarf my mom knit him, then to knit Best Friend socks, then Sweetie socks, and then finally I'll knit myself some socks. Ironic that I haven't done that yet. There's an "It's Not a Gift" knitalong (scroll down, it's at the end of her post) and I'd love to participate but I don't think I'll be done with all these gifts in time.
Anyway I got a swift and ball winder, and they're so much fun! I'll try to get some pictures up soon, but wanted to update regardless.
