Hand-knit gifts are the best, don’t you think?

I got the last of my gifts wrapped this morning. Some socks for a friend who is starting her own company. She needs daring color and warmth.

These should do the trick. Next, a little shawlette for another friend who is starting her own business. Sense a trend here?


Emily had to put her stamp of approval on this one. Really, she just wanted to shred the tissue paper. She loves that stuff!

Then, I got to work on some socks I started a while ago. This is the Mock Cable pattern by Wendy Knits. It can be found in her book, Socks from the Toe Up.

Yes, I’ve gone back to using DPNs. I think the socks knit up faster, but I don’t have any data on that – just my impression.
