The cable footies I mentioned last month were a birthday present for my mom. I got really bored after the first one. While the simple cable keeps a knitter engaged, it’s a little monotonous. I ended up starting on a lace scarf so as to not give up knitting as a whole. I wrapped up both projects and have even worn the scarf to work a few times (of which only one person noticed was hand knit). My mom loved the socks and though it’s too hot right now to wear them, I’m sure they’ll keep her feet nice and toasty come winter.
