Christmas Knit #1 complete! (2 more to go)

These are for my SIL. I'm actually posting here first instead of my blog because I'm pretty sure she lurks there. I like to try and keep x-mas presents of surprise.



Sorry the pictures aren't better, I live in one of those places where the sun goes away in the winter.




(like my last minute sock blocker?  Grin)

The yarn is Knitpicks Essentials in "Burgundy" (her favorite color) and I think the lace pattern does quite well in this color. If the sock looks kind of big, it is. I had to size it up to fit a women's size 12W. After some trial and error I ended up increasing one needle size to US 2 and adding another 6 sts (enough for one more lace repeat). They fit my husband's feet well so I'm confident they'll fit hers. They have a good bit of stretch to them, too.

The lace pattern was very easy and doesn't take long to memorize. They knit up pretty quickly for me.

Almost a shame I have to give them away  Wink

Thanks for looking!

No problem! I forgot to ask, does the tea cozy fit ok? I aimed to make it a little bit bigger than the dimensions you gave me. I figured bigger is better than smaller.
