Socks, Christmas, more socks and Katie

Why is it that some weeks you have nothing to blog and then other weeks you have TOO MUCH to blog?!? I guess that is the way life is.

MY CHRISTMAS KNITTING IS DONE!!!!! :mrgreen: (yes it had to be yelled)
Dad’s socks are finally off the needles, thank goodness I started them in October or they never would have been finished in time!

Yarn: String Theory Colorworks – Resonance Base in Kopernik

I managed to squeak a men’s size 13 out of one skein + one heel toe skein. I totally and completely love this yarn (and this company) to pieces.

It started out looking like this:

I made some amigurumi-type decorations for my mom’s tree, which took me less than a day. Two cute little robins.
