But first I want to take a minute to share some Christmas knitting photos and recently completed knits.
First up are some happy recipients in Canada of some thorpes, stripes and mittens.
Next up are some Christmas knits for my Mom, one pair of socks somehow did not get photographed. Mom, please send me a photo of your blue jeans socks? These are the Best Friends sock, made specially for Mom!
This is the Swirls Hat, being modeled by Catherine.
And a gorgeous soft pair of mittens knit tip to cuff, of my own design.These are the Embossed Leaves I finally got around to knitting. They are simply gorgeous in a wonderful yarn called Earthly Hues (a gift from my far away knitting buddy, Christy)
And these are the Up-Down Spiral socks from IK's Favorite sock Book. I used left over sport weight yarn to make these and they fit Catherine perfectly (with a little growing room). She loves them and has not taken them off, except to sleep.
What am I up to now? I am doing a test knit of a lovely sock pattern "Snakes & Ladders" by Ann in Australia. Isn't the internet just amazing?!?!
And I am knitting the sleeves on the Shalor sweater by Penny Straker, for my Husband.
