So, for the longest time I've thought it would be a nice idea to buy a yarn blank and have my artistic father have fun on it then knit it up into a pair of socks for Mom. It looks like she'll be getting them for Christmas. Just looking at it makes me ridiculously happy. I'll need to make sure Dad or I have a good picture to give with the socks. Not to mention i need to go get needles long enough to do two socks at once before I start. Unfortunately, I did tell his mother about this idea, and she'll probably want son/granddaughter collab socks too. Meh, I have a full time job now and buying the yarn should be that much of a burden.
