Holiday post

FO, FO, FO, Merry Christmas, originally uploaded by Fletch Knits.

I finished a pair of socks! I never finish a pair. Sure, I finish one, but never more than a few inches of the other. And these weren't even worked two at a time.
The stats:
Yarn:Kool-aid dyed by me, with Knit picks sock weight bare yarn 100% wool
Needles: 2.25mm Addi Turbo 40 inch circular
Pattern: Basic sock, shortrow heel couple inches of ribbing at the cuff
Verdict: I'm glad these didn't pool very badly. They just striped! But they are awfully pilly, which isn't very nice.
The two following photos are my Christmas present from Santa. How awesome! I've been wanting these for two years. I spend all Christmas morning winding yarn. I think I ended up with about thirty balls, with quite a few skeins left over. I made yarn men with the balls. I'll get pictures. They're cute.

This is the first of a pair of mittens. Elliphantom's Herringbone Mittens. I finished the second one at 6 AM on Christmas Eve morning in order to wash, block, and dry them to give to the recipient that evening before dinner. It's a good thing I had iced coffee.

Sorry that it's been so long without an update. I've just been lazy, that's all. =]

There is something about knitting with yarn you dyed makes it more fun to finish things!

Merry Sockmas! They look very cozy. :-)

I was gifted oodles of gorgeous fiber from Still need to take pics.
