It's never a good thing when a Secret Project is featured in a WIP post. When that happens, it can only mean one thing. The gift being knitted wasn't finished by it's deadline and has been gifted on the needles. Such is the case with this pair of socks.
They were originally planned as a birthday gift for my mom. When April 15th came and went without me finishing sock one, I decided she didn't need to know about that plan. (Hopefully she's not reading this post.) I decided I could easily finish them for Mother's Day and no harm would be done.
As you can tell, I didn't quite make the Mother's Day deadline either. *sigh* I love the yarn (Great Adirondack Silky Sock) and I love the pattern (Waving Lace Socks from IK). But sore fingers and low blood sugars have significantly slowed down my knitting progress. Mom got to see her new sock(s) on Mother's Day, but can't wear them yet. I am determined to finish them by the end of May, so she can finally wear them and I can get my May Sock A Month 5 credit. It's totally doable, right???
