I made one of the little sock ornaments with ribbing at the top instead of seed stitch. I think I'd go with seed stitch next time.

The colors are atrocious, but I chose them just to make a practice one to see if this is what I want to make for all the relatives (I think I'll do one of these and one of the cute little sweater ones also).

I made it on size 1s instead of 0s and with the worsted weight I had lying around (Paton's I think--I hate making anything wearable out of this yarn because it's pretty scratchy, so this is a good way to get rid of all the extra I have lying around).

I love those legwarmers! They look awesome. I like the little flecks of color in yours. And the bunchiness (made-up word, I know)! I can imagine how warm they must be.

Thanks!  I made them by knitting with two yarns together, one was a very thin merino (I ran out of the red that you see on the right after the first, so subbed a rainbow one for the left) and the other was a kind of thin boucle (not as puffy and bumpy as your average boucle).  They're very warm, I love wearing them with slippers around the house.  Smiley

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Okay, this is really the Bobbi Bear but the pink kerchief is the one from page 108 on the elephant. I didn't weave in the ends yet because I had to add more rows to fit around the wider neck of Bobbi Bear.

I made the men's cashmere scarf (with knitpicks' decadence, which is 100% alpaca). The pattern is totally wrong in the book, but you can find it on the purlsoho website. I think it's actually just called broken rib. I like the way it turned out after blocking. Can you believe it grew about 9 inches with blocking! It's 70" long now, but I think that's great. I took photos of the right and wrong side...

Just FYI, there are 4 patterns from this book in the Good Housekeeping Holiday Best 2005 magazine.  There's a scarf, the baby booties (my fave!), sock and sweater ornamants, and best of all, the bear/rabbit/elephant stuffed dolls.  If you don't already own LMKG but want to check out some of the patterns, the magazine is an inexpensive way to try out a few.

My Hourglass Sweater!

I used 11 balls of Noro Silk Garden #8 and size 5 needles (I knit loose Smiley)

Though I look like a linebacker, I still think this pattern's a winner!
