When I visited my sister last month and brought her the newest pair of socks I'd knit, my nephew asked me to please knit him a pair as well. My sister and I weren't quite sure whether he really meant it, or it was just the novelty of it, but as it was brought up again a month later, and he'd still like a pair, I figured I'd be the doting aunt and knit some for him :) He picked out the yarn himself, and it's definitely very much him :) I started the socks last weekend, and am about one third through the second one.
Not entirely happy with the toes - should probably have started the decreases every row instead of every second to make them less "steep", but I realized that too late to want to rip back and start over again.
The only question now is whether it'll get cold enough again this winter to wear them! ;)
My other WIP is my Hitchhikers, where I've gotten another 5 tips done.
I've also been knitting some more puzzle pieces for the Ravellenic Games, but haven't gotten around to adding them to the blanket yet.
