The sum total of my Christmas knitting. My parents got matching pairs of Log Cabin Socks from Melanie Falick's Handknit Holidays, both in Cascade Pastaza, and my sister got a Clapotis in Andean Silk. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures before I wrapped them, so these are the best ones I have.
Katie takes time out from playing with her new ipod to show off her Clap. My only mod was to omit one repeat of the increases to make it a little narrower.

My mom's sock. She's much too busy running the show in the kitchen to pose for anything else. (She's wearing black pantyhose under the socks, which is why her skin may look a weird color.)

My dad, on the other hand, is a total ham who will pose for pictures all afternoon. Not that any of them show off the socks well, so I added a progress pic that I took last month.

Aaaaand progress shot.

That's all, folks!
