Last of Last Year...

I did finish two pair of vanilla socks during extended meetings and such last year. The Incredibly-Patient-Mother got the Water Lily Socks for Christmas.  She will wear wool socks and it makes me happy to think that she'll have warm feet.  I inherited her perpetually cold feet.

These socks are for me though. I've decided I'd like to have about  a dozen pair in my sock drawer so I don't have to do sock laundry every weekend between now and May. Of course, as I only have about five pair right now (Green, Teal, Burgundy, Blue, and those White/Purple/Green, yup five) that's going to be a bit of knitting. Still, I said I was charging in and making progress on some stash this spring, right?

Anywho.
