These socks are for my Mom, who has larger feet than mine. I hope they'll fit her OK. I haven't blocked the socks. I need to get some sock blockers. I keep looking at the ones from Knit Picks.

Remember the vest I made my mother last year? She called me to tell me that she put it in the washer and it shurk. Aaaaaah! Although the vest was a relatively simple pattern, it vest took me 8 months to complete. I told her NOT to put anything else I have knit her into the washing machine, especially the Luna Moth Shawl. I think she still wants me to knit her another vest. I do have wool in 2 different colors to make another vest.
Oh, I finally picked out yarn for my Doctor Who (season 12) Scarf !!!!! I'll have to show you the colors next time. Though I'm not sure I could actually wear such a scarf ... a 4.5 m to 5 m scarf on someone just over 1.5 m tall prolly wouldn't work out very well. Wouldn't want to pull an Isadora Duncan.
I mentioned a new TV & Blu-ray player in my last post. I finally got my hands on a Blu-ray DVD, Taken. WOW! The movie looked great, and it didn't hurt that the movie turned out to be pretty good too. Now I don't think I can buy regular DVDs anymore. The downside is that the Blu-ray DVDs tend to cost more. Sigh.
