New Projects

Last night I finally finished the BackBou's socks. They are his Christmas present. I am cognizant of the fact that it is January 11th. That's 17 days late. Technically. Because Christmas should be in our hearts all year long, right? I shall have to post about them later since he put them on immediately and has yet to take them off. Good man.

So today I have nothing on the needles (eek!) and so many delicious ideas!





Could these yummy skeins of Koigu become my new chevie?



Could this skein of Spirit Trail Sock Yarn become Socks for Veronik? or possibly Whitby socks?



Here is one of two cakes of mohair/wool yarn from ValKnitz. This is from my MIL (don't you love folks who buy you really nice yarn for presents?). I just love the colors and think it may become some fingerless mitts ... maybe the Maine Morning Mitts or the Princess Mitts from The Knitter's Book of Yarn? [Liz, I just LOVE this book!]



Time to cast on! Enjoy your knitting!

Stop teasing us with all that beautiful yarn!

If you can't think of anything to make with that stuff, feel free to send it to me. Liz has my address. ;o)

Oh a clean knitting plate!

And I sent some Christmas greeting to my Parisian friends, and they said it is appropriate to send holiday love up until the 15th. Here you are 4 days under the wire!

You had nothing on the needles? Nothing?! This makes me lightheaded to contemplate...must fan self....

The yarn is all so pretty. How to choose? Did you cast on all of them?

Carol said...

No, no, think Orthodox! As in celebrating Russian Christmas on January 6th! Then you are only 5 days late.

Isn't it great to be able to choose between such lovely skeins?

Did you take these pictures on a pizza peel?

What an embarrassment of riches, Ann!

The socks could be an early Valentine's Day gift!

Thanks for showing your new beauties. :-)
