Flashback Friday!

Thanks everyone for your input about which baby blanket to make! If you haven't voted see at the top right there is a poll so your opinion can count! I'm looking forward to starting it!
My sweater has been coming along well, but not much to show. I'm getting close to shaping the armholes! I'll post a pic on Monday. I don't have any grand hope to make much progress this weekend. We have a AMS region math conference here at LSU this weekend! There should be lots of super talks and I'm really looking forward to it, but....little else will get done. Somehow how I just don't feel right knitting during those talks, it seems rude and I should pay attention!
So some older knitting projects: (kindly submitted by my sister-in-law):

They were a birthday gift (although I had to take them back and lengthen them because they were too short---I'm getting better at making socks long enough). It seems I always have to make them longer than the pattern says! They are Embossed Leaves from Favorite Socks. I used US 2 dpn and yarn my sister-in-law gifted to me!!! She is so good to me! She went to New Zealand last summer and brought me back yarn to make 2 pairs of socks :) (I forgot to look up the ball band before I came to work today--if you're interested let me know and I will try to find it) The pattern was super and so quick to knit!
Enjoy your weekend! I'll be listening to math talks :)

Love those socks! I knitted some for me, but ended up giving them to my mom because they were a little too big. I kept them for a long time though, because I liked them so much.
