Approx one month of actual knitting time left

As I realized we're almost half way through the month of November, a little bit of my knitterly soul went into over-drive, causing me to ransack my "yarn treasure chest" and several bags hidden deep within the depths of my bedroom. Yarn I forgot I owned (and wondered why I purchased) was discovered, along with some extra needles and WIP's.

In my hunt I found some Wool-Ease appropriate for a teen, meaning it should hold up to his Oregon ranch lifestyle and is manly enough for an ear flap hat for an almost-man, not quite kid.

BTW, I started this blue sock tonight. The look I'm going for is understated but colorful.

You know, since Mom, Tyler and Aimee will be visiting me mid-December, my knitting time is seriously depleted. Especially since Mom wants to window shop and do touristy stuff, Apollo wants to take Tyler out for "man stuff" and Aimee just wants to hang out. I have a feeling we're going to be busy.

OOOoo - I'm loving the way this is knitting up. What kind of cuff do you have there? It looks kind of lacy, but I can't tell.

It's from the Fools Rush sock pattern, with minor modifications. The border is pretty simple but looks good. I'm thinking of using it as the pattern for the entire leg and folding it over for a cuffed sock. (if that makes sense)

I know what you mean... I'm running out of workstudy hours, so I'll have a little time between school days to do some quilting! Finally! But I won't get too much done knowing myself as I do...
