They are finally done....

and I can show them to you! My Dh is out of the house and I can take a picture and post them so you can see his Christmas socks! I think they came out great, but they took way too long since I could only work on them a half hour in the mornings before he got up out of bed!


Aren't they great! They are made with Knitpicks, Sock Landscape in Mesa. He picked out the yarn about a year ago and I ordered it in February, so I am sure he has long forgotten that I asked him what he liked from the catalog! They will be a nice surprise for him on Christmas!

Here is the in-between time project I worked on while he was in the room...

It is a scarf with an eyehole or a slit for the end to go in. It is made of 2 strands of chenille. One is a varigated and one is black. I think it makes a nice combo. I have another on the needles in black and a varigated browns. That one is even better. One is for my clerk at work and one is for my secret pal I do believe! Hopefully they both like it! If you want one, here is the pattern link. It works up really quick and easy. Would look great in a variety of yarns too! I happen to like chenille.

Not much else has been happening, except me not getting on the computer at home and being way too busy at work lately. Plus I am trying to work on a few projects for the holidays, Christmas shop, and plan for the holidays. So far I feel really good about my progress, especially since his socks are complete!

Wow, very nice socks. I'm too jealous. The stripes came out very nicely.

I've really got to try socks again.
