Some finished objects

I got some knitting done this weekend. I finished the socks for my sock-ret pal I changed my mind half way through and just made some simple ribbed socks

 I used Trekking I can’t find the ball band to tell you the color number I hope that she likes them. I also finished my moms christmas present! I know only 3 months late but hey it’s done! So now I can show you because she knows what she is getting

 Clapotis number 2 made from 4 balls of Noro Silk Garden color number 34  I loved working with this yarn. I made it smaller than the pattern but bigger than the scarf pattern I think I stopped at 69 or 70 stitches in  the first section.

Now I just have to finish Chan’s sweater and another pair of socks and I will have empty needles for the first time in a year!! Wish me luck!! Happy knitting!

    That must be very satisfying to have two great knits finished. They both look wonderful. BTW I love the new look of your blog. Spiffy!

    You’re ahead of me. I’ve still not finished my mom’s Christmas knitting. Big cheers for clearing the needles.

    Love the colors of the socks and the clapotis. I am sure that your Mom will love it. Good luck on empty needles.

    What will you do with empty needles??? I think I would die!

    I have to pass on that the Danica Scarf in SWS was an idea from

    I was just being a copycat but it turns out that SWS is perfect for that pattern color changes make each square individual, but they are gradual enough that both sides look good, no yucky wrongside.

    Love the socks! And that yarn works really well for the clapotis. I’m sure it’ll be well received.
