I realized on Friday that my aunt's birthday is coming up. What's special about that is that her birthday comes once every 4 years--and this year I actually remembered on time.
She always gives us socks for Christmas, and so this year I'm making her a pair of socks for her birthday. Thankfully, her feet are size 6, so I won't have a problem!
I'm using the Knittery's 4 ply merino in the colorway Roses. It's so beautiful, I wish I could have kept it for myself :) However, I asked DP, and he agreed that it would be the best color for her. The pattern is my version of Pomatomus, done toe up over 60 stitches. I started it Friday, and I'm already on the leg. I think this is the fastest I've ever done a pair of socks, and I'm so happy!
