More progress!

This morning I went stash diving to find some yarn to knit catnip mice.  Along the way I came across these mitts:

I generally love how they look, but I started them in September of 2012 and haven't really touched them since then. So today I escorted them to the frog pond!  Feels good to recover some needles.  Now I won't feel quite so guilty about whipping up a few catnip mice for the cats, and then settling in to start the Tom and Ethel socks (Ravelry link!).

I chose some Cascade Heritage Silk yarn (from stash, mind you!), in snow and turquoise. The socks will be knitted toe-up on one long circular needle.  I'm debating whether to knit them one at a time, or both at once.  Since the socks require 2 colors, there is the potential for major tangling with the 2 at a time method. But I gotta say, knitting socks one at a time is a little like torture for me. I think knitting both socks at once is the way to go -- what's knitting without a bit of tangling, anyway? -- so after I check some things off of my to-do list, I will settle in and cast on.  

How will you spend your Sunday?  Whatever you decide, I hope you enjoy every moment!
