Dad's socks are done! (Well, the ends aren't weaved in yet, but.) I bound off while teaching an ESL lesson late last night - talk about multi-tasking. No picture because I took them out of my overfull knitting bag this morning.
Now I'm looking for a suitable hat pattern for Sweetie, and worried that I don't have enough yarn. I have two balls of Knitpicks Ambrosia, based on nothing but my random assumption that that was how much I needed. Oh, and a little ball of Lion Brand Cashmere leftover from a scarf someone else knit for a stripe. He apparently wants a roll-brim with a little bobble on top (too cute!) but the scarf I'm matching it to is basketweave (I think? The one that looks like a checkerboard. Like my Dad socks) so I'm still tossing ideas around and would love suggestions.
I also got a pattern that I LOVE in my e-mail and wondering what from Knitpicks I could substitute without it costing more than 40$. It's looking like nothing, sadly.
So I'm still working on my Me Socks, and next in line to get cast on is Sweetie's Hat. Then I'm thinking Sweetie's socks for Valentine's Day AND Project Spectrum (multitasking again!) and after that I'll be done with all of this planning, and open to personal whims and suggestion.
