The Holiday Recap: Present-making was limited this year, as those adult children have such busy lives. We did one big gift. This was the inspiration, a fake advertisement:
I did socks, some of which didn’t quite fit and now have to be adjusted. It adds to the legend when you say you can do that, of course. My goddaughter said the ones I made her from leftovers are her favorites of all the ones I have ever made her. (She is a big charity shop devotee.) I meant to get an Esther Williams type photo of all the feet but the mayhem was too much.
My basic sock over 48 sts with a K3, P1 rib. The yarn is leftover sport weight sock yarn Supersocke 6-Ply Wohlfühl Color, now discontinued. I wish I had bought more. Here’s a pair made from one skein.
I did some hats, too. Action shots from our mid-day walk, with a bit of freshly falling snow for atmoshphere.– a Big Flap Hat in Rasta, from Malabrigo. (Such lovely yarn!) And a Hugs and Kisses Hat in Cascade 128 superwash.
A slightly better shot of the little hat, with the back of my husband’s Nansen I knitted a zillion years ago:
Now to my favorite time of winter, no fuss, no muss, no gardening, just reading and knitting and trying to stay warm. Best wishes to all of you for 2015.
