Just cast on the socks I intended to make for Mom at least 5 years ago…maybe longer! This is beautiful yarn I purchased from Lorna’s  Laces so many years ago.

I just learned how to do long tail cast on thanks to Susan B. Anderson’s tutorial which makes a much nicer edge than cable cast on. These are being knit on size 1 bamboo double point needles as you can see 🙂  I am using Susan Anderson’s sock pattern for the first time.

I am hoping to have these finished this weekend so I can start shopping for yarn for the next project. Luckily I won’t be knitting at stop lights today!
