Happy Early Mother's Day to Rae

Rae is the mother of the adorable Julie and equally cute Godson (aka Mister). She also is a teacher. Not just any teacher, one of the best English teachers I have every met (who else would host a LCMS Idol where the kids had to make up songs based on Emily Dickinson lyrics). She's one of the good ones.

For her birthday, I was planning on knitting her some socks. At the time, I thought I had started early enough that it would be no problem (she's got really tiny feet). Well, Mister came a wee bit early, and then I was in Sock Madness for much longer than I thought I would be (Rae called it "Extreme Knitting"). Last Sunday, after the party, I sat down and finished the second sock. I can't think of many people, outside of my family, that I think deserves some nice socks more. Happy Mother's Day Rae! You're a rockstar!

For all you knitting folks, the yarn is Jitterbug (I can't recall the name, but make sure you wash it out really well. I had some DARK blue water). I knit these on size 2 dpns. They're just my basic sock pattern.
