I just had a dose of sheer genius: I will knit tube socks! No heel to turn! And since my kids' feet grow so fast, this will allow them to keep wearing the socks for several winters. I have some gorgeous sport-weight yarn already skeined up and I'm going to knit toe-up to use every possible meter of it.
I'm shooting for two pairs but will settle for one.
In other news, I'm part-way through two baby sweaters and a scarf and I'm about to rip out a spiral mitten that is just too small. I also need to put thumbs on the Cheshire Cat Mittens, which might even get done tonight.
