Go Eagles (the socks, not the team)!

I am still not over my latest fiasco (it looks fine until I put it on, and then . . . hoo, boy--roll, flip, flip, roll) but I did cast-on for my son’s socks in Scout’s yarn dyed especially for him. I am using Knitty’s Thuja pattern (love it!) so that it is interesting for me to knit, but with the striping, you can’t really see the pattern detail.

This is fun--not just the colors, and the football thing for him (and if you don't know let me just tell you, the Eagles are NOT on a winning streak), but because I am playing a little game with myself (and everybody else in my family!): I am knitting these socks (and any other Christmas socks I might venture to make) in secret. This means while everyone is sleeping, or out, or otherwise occupied, I am knitting and giggling. In front of them, I am still noodling around with the other unfinished sock(s) they've seen me working on. No one suspects a thing . . . We’ll see if I can keep this up past this week.
