One Last Post

My last finished project for 2012.  These are the Fletcher Mittens and I used FatCatKnits September Mythology Creation in Falkland.  I love these, I think they are awesome.  My husband said they were weird because if pointy tips but I am hoping to put them to good use since it has been snowing here all day.

This is the last project I started in 2012.  Just a basic sock with a little ribbing down the sides for interest.  I am using Lollipop yarns 80/20.

I hope you all have had a blessed holiday season and hope your 2013 is filled with lots of knitting and spinning.

Hats, Socks, and Mittens

 This is the last Simple Slouchy hat that I needed to get done.  I knit five of these hats since the beginning of October.
 These were my socks that were supposed to be for the self striping knitalong in September and October, I just finished them a couple of weeks ago.  Just took pictures this morning.
I have started a pair of Fletcher Mittens with some handspun from the FatCatKnits September Mythology.  This one was called Creation and the fiber is Falkland. The only thing I dislike about this pattern is all the ends to weave in but I think they are going to be really neat when they are finished.

Same Hat, Different Color Yarn

I love knitting this Simple Slouchy hat and since it is great mindless knitting I don't mind knitting it for other people.  This hat is for my boss's mother.  I am using Malabrigo worsted in Sealing Wax.  I love love love this yarn and it is so awesome to knit with.
