They're done!

The last pair of Christmas socks has been finished. I can't believe it. WHOOHOO! That's one less thing to worry about. They are from top left: Snowflake Socks in Opal Uni, Cornflower; Manly Socks in Lorna's Laces Cedar; Manly Socks in Cherry Tree Hill Java. Bottom Row: Girl's Cable Socks from Bear Brand Socks in Opal Uni (I forgot the color), and another pair of the same, in the same yarn, color forgotten. There's one more pair I didn't show, the Manly's for DH, using Fleece Artist Merino. They're finished, but not blocked. DH couldn't wait for that. You can double click the picture to see the details better if you'd like.

Now what? I bought the Knitter's Bible, by Claire Crompton, and it has lots of little projects in it. I started a lace sachet bag last night using some sage colored Sinfonia I had in my stash. I figure I'll bust a little stash for a while and learn some new stitches and techniques.

I'm glad it's Friday. It's been a weird week and I'm ready for a break. We're having Thanksgiving here and I have no idea who's coming. If it's just us, so much the better. More dressing for me.

Ya'll have a great weekend!

Happy are those feet who'll get your socks!
And lace stitches are simply irresistible!

Wow, I envy your socks. SOooo beautiful!

I heart The Knitters Bible - such a great addition to any knitter's library.

Oh, and regarding the previous post, your boys are absolutely adorable! They'll def be heartbreakers in a few years time. *sigh*

Very nice bunch of socks! You are quite productive! The blue is just gorgeous.

Sometimes the smaller gatherings at Thanksgiving can be the most pleasant :)
