Sixth pair for the Box o'Sox

I've been busy knitting on another pair of socks with my Opal yarn intended for charity. I originally thought I would ditch the 2 soxs on 2scircs this time, but as you can see, I gave it another try. This pair has been the easiest; I've knitted on the wrong needle only once. So far. I've never had to work so hard to get a new technique to click for me. I'm amazed that I keep returning to the circs to give it another try. Normally I would have decided this is not going to work, and I would have used the circs for a different project. Perhaps I'm getting (more) stubborn in my old age.

I just finished the gussets and am ready to turn the heels and knit the heel flaps. This part usually flies for me, since I knit one sock at a time. This is another pair of toddler socks, 60 sts, adding 10 sts for each gusset. I am using k3p2 ribbing, and those dratted size 0 circs.

I did finish a baby hat this week, but gave it to a co-worker of my DH. He is a Grandfather-in-waiting, and wanted a baby hat for his new grandson. I finished Part 6 of SamplerM, and will take a combined picture of 6 & 7 next week.

My DD is coming to visit Saturday! Should I beware of daughters bringing gifts of yarn? Not really a gift, but she is bringing yarn, so I can knit a baby gift for one of her friends expecting in October. Can't wait to get started!
