I have been so busy

Believe it or not, I have finished a lot of knitting lately. Most of it Christmas knitting. Of course I forgot to take pictures of them before they were wrapped. I finished a pair of socks for my father using Steinbach Wolle Sockenwolle Plus in color 40. I used the basic top down stockinette pattern. He really liked them. I printed off the gift tags from Amy's blog. My dad handed me back the tag and asked me to refill it please. Now that is the kind of response you want to you hand knits. I also knit my Mother a pair of socks (same basic pattern) using the Fortissima Socka Yarn 1776. She loves all things americana and the socks turned out really cute. Finally, I knit both my sister and my mother the fuzzy feet slippers from Knitty using Brown Sheep. I have also knit a pair for myself out of Cascade Pastaza that I had in my stash. So I have been very busy this month with the knitting. I promise to do a better job of the picture taking in 2007. Currently I'm working on the ruffle scarf from Scarf Style out of Noro Koreyon from my stash and finishing a pair of socks for myself out of Cherry Tree Hill Potluck in Brights. I promise to post pictures of both when they are done.

I'm going to attempt to join the 2007 de-stash that Wendy recommends. The details are on her blog. The truth is that I have about 5 sweater boxes full of yarn for projects that I intended to start and just never did. If I keep this pace up, I won't have enough places to put everything. I also like that sock yarn is not stash (not that I don't have about 20 skeins or more stashed).

Everyone have a very safe and wonderful new Year!
