Eighteen of Fifty-Two

Edit: Yarn ordered has arrived! Some new colors in Patons Classic Wool and the Tweeds and restocked Kroy sock yarn.

Can't start my post with anything but baby pictures of my new nephew. I took these three pictures on Sunday, so he was just a week old.

The Oldest One holding his new little cousin.

The Littlest One sat still long enough for two pictures with his cousin, then it was, "You hold him".

One dozen dishcloths knit with various shades of Bernat Handicrafter. They are intended for four different people, three each, for Christmas gifts. I'm doing up bags with three dishcloths, a smelly candle, melon-scented hand soap, and a nice aromatherapy dish soap.

My new camera and printer that I picked up last week. I haven't had time to read much about the camera yet. I did get the software loaded onto the computer so I had pictures for this post.

Lastly I have pair eighteen of fifty-two finished for the 52PP. These also make my November socks for the SAM4 KAL. Not very interesting, granted. They are Briggs & Little Tuffy (80% wool 20% nylon) work socks in Smoke with Red Mix stripes. I used the B&L Heavy Socks pattern. These are for my step FIL for Christmas, and I have the yarn to make another pair in Oatmeal for him. I find with these socks I need to takes breaks once in awhile. The thick, stiff yarn on 3.25mm needles gets hard on the hands. He wanted wool work socks, though, so I know he'll greatly appreciate them.

That's it for FOs for now. I do have a diagonal bag to felt and a pair of mittens. I am hoping to get a second pair of mittens knit tonight out of the leftovers from the other mittens and bag so I can felt the three things together.
Happy knitting!

Your new nephew is adorable. The handknit cloth gift packages sound like a fantastic idea. The work socks look like work socks...but I guess that is a good thing!

Oh, the baby is so wee! The dishcloths are all so pretty. I think the camera is doing a pretty good job...all the photos look great.

What a lovely baby. AWWWW.
Almost makes me want another one, almost.
Hahah.
I love the gift idea you posted, washclothes with handmade soaps and some candles. Nice. I have a bunch of that cotton in the closet. How long did they take to make?
