Time for a Christmas Wish?

An excerpt from an email with my mother today discussing Christmas lists:

"Socks would be good too, heavier ones to wear with boots. Wool."

Now this was not expressly a 'please make me some socks', but it sure seems close. Heavier socks = quick knitting, no? But I have no superwash worsted weight yarn. But, I have a skein of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock DK. . . .I'm debating if I have time to cast on and finish a pair. What do you think?

(And no comments from the peanut gallery that in the last week I've cast on and finished like 4 projects. . .as soon as I HAVE to do something it becomes much less likely I WILL do it.)

Worsted socks might be too thick, and I've knit DK socks. They'll be quick. CO today. =0) Winter is long.

Sounds like a reason to go yarn shopping!

DK/Sport weight socks go really quickly. You'd think it wouldn't make that much of a difference, but it does.

I won't cast on til Sunday at the earliest for the Xmas present I'm making... I won't even have the yarn til late tomorrow. It can be done!

good luck!
