Socks and Sun....wool and warm weather?

I LOVE this cable design. It's simple enough to put on a sock. I was thinking of putting it on my mom's Ohio State socks I started today. It's out of Vogue Knitting Stitchionary 2. I suggest everyone buy these books, they are wonderful!

I have been working on Melissa's socks. I HATE THIS YARN! This is Lion Brand's sock yarn. It is sooooo dry that I keep having to use lotion after everytime I knit with it. This is exactly the reason I don't use cheap yarn or really any yarn that isn't from a real yarn store. The socks are coming along alright. I'm actually kind of shocked that I'm almost about to turn the heel. Funny eh?

Here is the beginning of my mom's Ohio State socks. This is Austermann sock yarn. It is made with aloe vera in it, so my hands don't dry out unlike with the Lion Brand. The colours are of Ohio State & both my parents are Buckeyes. Woohoo! O H. . . . I O!!! I made my mom a different pair of socks, but amazingly my mom somehow ripped a hole in one of them.

Here is what it looked like today. . . . sunny eh?
