I have no real excuse for not posting for the past couple of months other than I was so busy trying to finish all my Christmas knitting/crocheting that I didn't have the time to even log onto my computer or download pictures or even TAKE any pictures.
But I finished all my Christmas knitting/crocheting just in time.
The Green Bay afghan got finished at 1pm on Christmas Eve! It was given as a gift at 4pm that same day. Talk about a close call! My BFF loved it has uses it all the time to keep herself warm. She has some medical issues and she is always cold so this was a much loved and will be a much used gift.
I didn't get photos of the other gifts that got made but here is a list of them:
2 dishcloths (I had others already made so only needed 2 more to complete the season)
2 pair of socks
Peacock earrings and necklace set (I know it is not fiber related but I had to make some anyway)
That is about all I made.
Let me tell you....................I made a pair of mink socks for my mom and she is in love! She said they are the warmest things she has ever had on her feet. They are short socks as she likes to wear socks to bed and that is what they are for.
The other socks I made were from Panda Cotton and for my DIL. I have made socks for everyone else in the family and she has made comment that she has never received any. That problem is now taken care of.
The afghan was a bugger to to do. I was not as professional on it as I should have been but it took me a loooooong time to do it and by the time I was done I was totally sick of green and gold! It is huge too. It fills the top of her king sized bed.
So now what do I work on? I was working on my Radian Yoke sweater when I was notified that my fingerless mitts almost went to a new home. Yup, my DIL saw them on my kitchen counter and decided that they would be a perfect thing for her to have. She also reminded me that her birthday was coming up at the end of January. (I can take a hint) So I pulled out my sock yarn and started on them. I also realized that I would have enough yarn to make her a matching slouchy beanie. One glove will be done by today and hopefully the other by next weekend. The hat doesn't take but a few days so it will all be done before the 30th!
I looked at my YoP list for this year and have discovered that being 'fague' is a good thing. Lets see how I am doing.
