With little time this year to knit, I am hoping to get some quick projects done over the Xmas holiday period...
Objects have been cast on.....let's see how much I can do in a 3 week period....

socks from Toe Up...
more socks from Toe Up technique (these have been frogged twice now)


Cameron and I went to Idee on Saturday and bought some soft wool for a hat and scarf for both boys...hopefully get these done as well....

Xmas presents for Teachers

A Baktus scarf for Miss Beves from Alexander.
Pattern is "Baktus scarf" by Strikkelise
5.5mm needles
Wool: Fibreworks Kid Mohair Brushed

A scarf for Mr Shillitoe from Cameron.
Pattern is "Hubby Approved Neck Warmer" by Danielle Landes
3mm needles
Trekking Sock wool, unsure of actual colour...tag has gone walkabout.

The patterns were so nice to do, I am now making myself a Baktas scarf. With the -13 degree weather we have been having, the kids want a scarf like Mr Shillitoe's to wear under their jackets on these cold days!

Uptown Boot Socks

These socks have been picked up ,then put down so many times over the past 12 months.

I didn't make any mistakes that needed to be frogged, but life this year has been busy with my first year of Uni...and kniting and all craft has taken a back seat!

Finally got these finished, and I am really happy with them!

The pattern is from "Favourite Socks", from Interweave Knits.
