Well, after thinking about (and printing) about a zillion sock patterns yesterday, I couldn't keep myself from casting on for some yesterday. So I started Jaywalkers for myself in Opal Traumfaenger Farbe 1234. The yarn is lovely and soft, at least it's really a touch softer than the Lana Grossa Meilenweit I am using for the baby cardigan and matching hat and socks... (the hat moved to circs for magic loop to free up my DPNs for my socks).
(I am such a dummy: I did not realize that the Jaywalker pattern consisted of two rows. Now that I realize, because it's way too tight, I have to rip out the 1 inch that I got done.)
So, after I realized my mistake, I got a couple of rounds in on the baby hat to match the baby cardigan.
And I realize what with more friends' birthdays and visits and stuff coming up, that I will never be able to give them all knitted presents. Well, anyhow. At least I try for some of them.
