What do you think, can I start a pair of socks today and get them done by Sunday? I'm not sure either but I am ready to try!
But, I need your help! Here are my options in yarn...Vote on one to make Cookie's Monkey Socks. This will be my first time making these socks but I have wanted to for so long. So, all of you out there who have made some of these socks (and I know there are a lot of you) please help me choose!

Why the rush on the socks? Well, besides the obvious reason of Mothers Day, my mom just had knee surgery and is really down in the dumps. When I went to visit her yesterday I found her sitting on the couch, crying because of all the pain from the rehab. I felt so bad for her.
There is no way I can make the pain less but I am a knitter. I can KNIT! **insert loud sound of clicking needles here :-)** She is to come over to my house on Sunday for Brunch and I would love to give her a new pair of socks.
Now, I know what you are thinking...what about John's socks? Have I finished those? No...not yet; but I am on the home stretch! Those will be done by tonight and I can cast on for moms socks after that (hopefully tomorrow).
Ya, ya, ya, I hear you back there! I know my mom has been the recipient of so many of my socks already. And I know that she even felted two of them. And I know that she recently stole MY pair of socks...but hey, it's my MOM! She has earned them :-)
All you lurkers...I need you to de-lurk and give me a hand! Thanks!
