This started out as a "maybe" gift but it's gone so fast I'm pretty confident I can finish it. It's actually more of a "thank you" than a Christmas. My aunt got two new kitties that LOVE yarn so she gifted me her stash - thank heavens it wasn't to big - this is a mohair blend that was part of it. It's too beautiful for her not to have it.
Very simple k1 yo knit to end. Goes super fast on size 15 needles.
A new hat for my SIL - I think it has decided it wants to be a birthday gift instead (Jan 21) cuz it took me an hour today to knit 3 rows. Doubt it will be done in the next two weeks.
Mom's socks did turn out to be to big. I've got to take out two pattern repeats. She was totally sweet about it and offered to keep them anyway but she already has two pair of socks that are too big - you'd think after all this time I'd learn to use a dam measuring tape. So I need to fix that and knit the mate - I hope I can remember what I did for the reverse sole. Plus there were a couple of other things on my knit wish list and I want to cast this on like right now - luckily (or not) I don't have yarn for it. Yup out of my mind for sure. But in a good way. ;)
Look at all that other knitting - fab!
