Christmas knitting.

Hey, how about I finally share the gifts I made for Christmas? :)

These plain socks were for my mom, of course, who loves pink! I picked up this yarn back in March at a fiber festival, and it's dyed by one of my favorite somewhat-local dyers to me: Unplanned Peacock Studio. {Ravelry project page}

Two more pairs of socks, these for my sister-in-law and her future baby boy who's due in April! I couldn't resist making matching socks for them. :) Hers are plain socks, the baby ones are from this pattern. The yarn was so pretty that I wished I could have kept it for myself: Junkyarn in the Luna Lovegood colorway. {Ravelry project page}

The color doesn't show up well here, but this lavender small shawl was for my mother-in-law. It's the Multnomah pattern, but for some reason this one turned out a bit smaller than the two I'd made previously. The yarn was from HauteKnitYarn. {Ravelry project page}

I made these zombie mitts for my other mother-in-law. I love how this pattern turns out, but I'd forgotten how tedious all those cables are! They're made with KnitPicks Hawthorne Kettle Dye. {Ravelry project page}

I also knitted my first colorwork sweater, this sweet one for my niece! It's from the Strange Brew pattern, and I used KnitPicks Stroll Worsted (my go-to for making washable sweaters for her!) My colorwork was a little loose but I'm so happy with how this one turned out. {Ravelry project page}

I seem to have accidentally deleted the picture, but I also made a hat for my father-in-law that you can see here


  1. You know I love my socks, yes I do love pink. You stayed busy with all these
    gifts. They are all beautiful, and I know everyone loved theirs! Thank you for mine and for being the best daughter ever! Love you! Mom


  2. Good gifts for you! Personally, I was played on that day with the help of such tablets as these and it was them that I received as a gift.

  3. Show me the signature on your email, to tell you what professional you are
    It may seem bad to you when you hear it and you will be right. Signing your email can not prove how good a professional you are. But it can reveal whether you are an "old" and "tired" professional or "fresh" and "adapted" to modern practices.
    What does trol mean?
    Words like troll, trolls, trolling, trolling have entered our vocabulary relatively recently. In fact, many of us may use them on a daily basis. But do we know exactly what they mean? Let's shed some light!
