On the home stretch....

I'm almost ready for Christmas...















I've been away taking another class but I've been knitting too! Here are Vanessa's skinny scarf and Erin Bag. Turned out really nice in a wool/alpaca aran weight. Handles from the "rip off" company, of course. (way too expensive, but DARN, they're nice)

And below we have STR baby socks for Colin with yarn left over from his mother's socks. I think each sock took about an hour to knit. I should make him more of these. (they're just tied together with the yarn. They're not little bows)


And, lastly, I did decide to make the hat to match Colin's sweater. It's been bothering me that I didn't do this because it was my intention all along. I think I can have it finished.

















And now a mystery..... I knit this hat a few years ago using Shelly's hand spun. It's the Coronet pattern from knitty.com if anyone is interested. Anyhow, it disappeared out of my closet for a long time. I really can't remember the last time I saw it. On Monday morning, when I got in my car, it was on the front seat. (yes, I did leave the doors to my car unlocked accidently) I have no idea who had it. I have no idea why they just stuck it in the door of my car. I know that I didn't leave it anywhere because I never wore it. While I love the look of it, it looks terrible on me. Very strange.
