Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!!

I hope everyone is having an excellent Christmas! I've been busy knitting, but for the first time in a long time the only things I had to knit on Christmas Eve was stuff that I wanted to knit, not stuff that I had to knit for Christmas, lol.

I made another pair of Thujas with Patons Kroy in eclipse and coal for the heels and toes, Ravelry details here.

More Kroy socks, plain old vanilla in copper colors, details here.

I used up some leftover Briggs & Little Tuffy to make some ladies ankle socks, details here.

The oldest kid had big, wide feet.  Size 14 EEEE, to be exact.  He complains non-stop about is socks, and it's really hard to get him anything that actually fits him that he likes.  He only likes ankle socks, so I made him a pair out of my leftover Serenity Sock Yarn in aquamarine, details here.

Don't eat too much turkey or ham!!  Soon off to MIL's for Christmas dinner, first time in many years that I haven't had to do it!!

Happy knitting!!

PS  (I got lots of Tuffy for Christmas to make work socks!)

Socks, Of Course!

More socks to post, though until my yarn order arrives I am pretty much out of sock yarn.  Might have to actually knit something else!

A pair of Thujas made with Patons Kroy in Eclipse with Coal for heels and toes.  Ravelry details here.

60 stitch Pink Sugar vanilla socks for a Christmas gift, Deborah Norville Serenity Sock Yarn, details here.

My Monday night knitting group meets at the local museum.  They decorate big time for Christmas and put up many trees.  They had a little tree they asked everyone to make decorations for, so I made some mini socks, of course, lol.  Leftover socks yarns, the pattern is Mini Socks, details here.

Happy knitting!
