For our church's service auction, I submitted an offer to knit someone a pair of socks. The total service was breakfast at a popular local restaurant followed by a stop at the LYS to select the yarn. A multi-talented quilter from our church, Mary, was the high bidder. I started on the socks late yesterday, and have completed about 4" of the leg of the first sock. I think she will enjoy seeing her socks "in utero".
