These are my mom’s latest Koigu socks. As I said, she is knitting through her impressive stash one skein at a time. I have my choice of sock. Any thoughts? She had me pegged for the Traveler’s Sock–I love that pattern but I have coveted that green Koigu in her stash for quite some time.
I have finally finished my holiday knitting. The last 2 scarves get gifted today. I am really pleased with Miss G’s green dropped stitch scarf. It was a pain in the butt but it looks very nice. On the quilt we have the rest–less one overly fluffy scarf. Starting in the top left corner, Blizzard hat for Cam’s OT, green scarf for Cam’s reading teacher, red Blizzard hat for his speech teacher, next to that one a Sheela scarf and CZ ring for Cam’s teacher, beneath that scarf for the MIL knit with Tess Designer Yarns cultivated silk/merino with microfiber ribbon edging, blue scarf for crossing guard and the multidirectional scarf for Owen’s home teacher.
I have been a terrible St. Brigid knitalong host as of late. Sorry. I promise, after the holidays are over to do better. 🙂 I am nearly finished with my shopping. Last minute stuff to even up the gifts for the kids. Cameron really wanted that S’mores Maker and it is nowhere to be found. I broke down and went to Linen’s and Things to get there more grown up version–one damaged one left. I took it. I was joking with Gracie that it will have to be from mom and dad ’cause Santa doesn’t give broken gifts–they go to the Island of Misfit Toys. She is getting a kick out of this whole Christmas thing. And Cameron is amazing to watch. He believes so wholeheartedly. His teacher had letters sent to the kids from Santa. He slept with it under his pillow last night.
