One more WIP!

So my last WIP to show you is my basic self striping ribbed socks that I am making for my mother.  They are made out of Knit Picks Felici in the the colorways Risato.  You can see the stats on Ravelry here.  I am not in love with the colorway but my mom loves it. 

I have finished the first one and the second one is moving along slowly.  Hopefully they will get done soon. 

My mother is a knitter as well and just doesn’t understand why someone would knit socks when they will just get worn out from walking around on them.  I felt the same way until I made my first pair just as practice for making a stocking and ended up loving how comfortable they were and wanting more.  So now it is my mission to convince my mom to knit socks as well.  She seems to love how the first one fits and is excited for them to be finished so that she can wear them so I think she will easily be converted.  They haven’t been getting a ton of work done on them however because I am trying to use what little knitting time I have right now to work on my sister’s scarf and teddy bear so that hopefully she will be able to bring them to school with her when she leaves at the end of August.  Hopefully I will have some FO’s to show off soon.
