Early Christmas presents!

Woo-hoo! Look what I got! Two early Christmas presents from my friends. Aren't these beauties?

The new Cat Bordhi sock book has some very interesting ways of constructing socks. I can't wait to try some of them out. I really need to knit myself some more wool socks.

The knitted trims book has some edgings and other trims that I've never seen before. It will be another great resource to use for designing new knitting projects. Thanks so much for the goodies!

I finished a baby hat last night and worked on one sleeve of the baby sweater. The bind off was too tight so I'm going to rip it back and try again. Only one more sleeve to go and sewing on a couple of buttons until it's done.

In looking for something else, I found an orphan baby sock I'd made a while back. If I can find the pattern I used for it I may make a mate. The trick will be locating where I put the pattern. Yes, I know, I should have stowed the pattern, the orphan sock and the rest of the yarn all in a Ziploc bag for future knitting.
