Socks from my mom......for me

I send my mom lots of sock yarn, as a gift, since she loves to have socks on the needles for a random project. She has always knit us kids sweaters and mittens as we were growing up.
She absolutely LOVED this yarn and wanted to make me a pair of socks. They are so nice.....not only to wear but each time I put them on, I think of my mom.
I think it is a worsted Fortissima washable wool. She knit a 1x1 rib with sockinette foot.
I love my socks......and I love my mom.

Those are great socks, I'll bet you could wear them every day and they would match whatever else you had on!

I envy you your mother. Mine died almost 20 years ago, and I still miss her every day. Give your mom an extra hug from me the next time you see her.

I am so sorry for your loss. Moms are very important. I learned a most valuable lesson from her: She used to say "Don't waste your breath saying unkind words to or about someone."

What a precious and special gift! My mom never knits anymore. When I was a kid, she started every once in a while a knitting project and I was the one who finished it, LOL!

My mom crocheted all the time, so I have a lot of those things to remember her by--she would have been 85 years old yesterday, but has been gone since 1984.

On a happier note, here is a picture of my socks from that yarn--I think these were actually the second socks I ever made! http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunasak/182958146/in/set-72157594187688851/

Good news is that at home I have more of that yarn, because I was going to knit it up again for someone else, in a less pitiful looking pattern. I will see what it is, exactly!

Having fun catching up on this blog...
