Sock update

So the sock that I am knitting is coming along great. However my one worry is that it is a bit too small... because there were two sizes.... regular and large... and the large was for 'curvy-er' feet it said. So I thought instantly ok cankles! I don't have cankles~.... I have small ankles etc. So then I am knitting it and I didn't consider that I have angle-ier feet, I have a high arch in my foot.... so when I finish this, I will find out how it is. If not, I have learned tons in knitting this sock, I doubt I will un ravel it. This is a perfect test sock... heck I can even felt it (since it is wool) and make it a cat toy for my cats to attack or something. :D

My mother wants me to knit her a pair of socks for her to wear around the house, because her feet and my feet are always cold. But then when I think about that, even my Aunt Jennie's feet are cold, I can knit her a pair of socks like that too for her to sleep in with.

:D I <3 knitting socks, and I cannot wait to pick up the Liza Souza yarn in the Lime and Violet color way and the Violets Pink ribbon.

I am totally going to get it in the four ply fingering weight, I think it is Sock Merenio. I am so excited.

I also need to finish my clapotie for my Farmor.... which is ok, it is good car knitting... but so is my sock~ ;p lol Such a conflict~.

I need to finish my college swap partner's stuff. I am going to knit her legwarmers (she said she wanted those)... I am just trying to figure out what type of yarn to use for it... Wool for the elasticity.... or Wool-ease/mix so it can be washable, but would it lose all its elasticity?! I don't know, I need to look into it. I could possibly do some round swatches because I have some left over yarn in both of those type of yarns.
