I was trying to figure out what last minute gift I could knit up for my girls for the christmas stockings when I stumbled on a pair of socks that I had already knit. I was planning on giving them to the girls for Easter way back when, until I realized that they were still a bit too big. No problem right? Just put them away for a year (or two), forget them and then bring them out in a pinch. Just don't forget that you still have to knit up another pair, they can't wear only one sock each silly.
That is exactly how the story goes, I did forget about the socks and when I was rumbling through my yarn bin looking for something to knit during sick-December, voila, there they were. I still had to knit up a second pair but that was pretty quick and painless.
They joined the boys knucks on Christmas eve, placed in stockings awaiting the Christmas morning excitement. The sock yarn details can all be found here. I think I like knitting up things and forgetting about them, it's a nice surprise.
