Zig zag

Uh oh, someone let a TIE fighter get them. My TIE fighter pointed out to me that the Monkey socks were going to be too big for Mom. They were looking gorgeous but, while I love Mom, she will point out when something doesn't fit well so I had to cut my losses early and hope I can recover.

This is probably not the best pattern to choose with this yarn because the colors completely hide the pattern.

Probably the best would just be a twisted rib or classic rib (or even a spiral rib) but Mom lives in Arizona most of the year so I wanted an open lace. Something that isn't quite so "wintery" looking. (Is anyone taking bets on me changing my mind again?)

I'm not even back to where I was in the previous pair but it is a good start on a pair of Gull Wings from Socks Socks Socks. There are 30 repeats to do (I'm counting the cuff, heel and toe as a repeat each) so I've done 4 repeats. That means I need to do at least 9 a day to finish these by Sunday. If I had nothing else to do but knit I could totally pull this off.

But the odds are against me on this project...
