I just couldn't decide... which yarn... which pattern...
so I cast on all three.
I started on a bit of a sock knitting binge on Christmas Eve, and today was short-row heel practicing day. Of course the best directions I found were in More Sensational Knitted Socks. Of course.
The yarns (l to r) are Chewy Spaghetti Sport in "Boyish" (which I am seriously in love with), Duet Middy in "Bauer Blue" (also fabulous), and Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (which I want to wrap all around me). I'll give links and stuff later. Too tired right now and I still have to dig up something in that perfect shade of Longhorn orange for the game tomorrow.
Speaking of which... here's another twist to the family football saga I shared the other day. The Longhorns, as you may or may not know, are playing Arizona in the Holiday Bowl tomorrow. Rudy Carpenter, the quarterback for Arizona, is a local boy. So local in fact that he graduated from my alma mater (although many, many, many years after me), my husband went to high school (and played football) with his dad, and my oldest son goes to school with his younger sister. Local. And he's playing my nephew's team. Interesting, no?
At the very least, football is making the world a smaller place.
