So, I started the christmas knitting a month ago and feel like Im doing well *proud*

Sorry for the upside-downness of several of the pic, I cant get the computer to cooperate Sad

Coolest hat in existence for a friend:

Green-striped socks for one of my roomies. She wears way to much black

Action shot! Totaly upside-down XD

Super-comfy mittens for another friend

Side-knit socks to my brother, in same yarn as the mittens.

The famus Anthropologie caplet in the softest yarn possible. The color in this pic isnt too great, its a dark gray-purple with shimmer. No action shot as it is for a way skinnier friend.

Pink sock for my other roomie. I did a provincial CO and haven't gotten around to do a fancy-pancy BO yet

A WIP scarf for my grandma. It curls a awful lot and its cotton so I dont think I can block it but its pretty anyway

More socks. Stripes are nice.

Legwarmes. They refused to be taken picture of, and any actionshot was blurry and dark.

Gloves for myself! I call them my un-stealable psychedelic gloves cause theyre to ugly for anyone to want or take by mistake*grin* The pink one obviously doesn't want its picture taken.

Green in action!

And a beautiful beautiful scarf made out of wool that turned out to be itchy Sad I was going to give this away but I wont give away anything I wouldnt wear myself. Ive tried conditioning it and all that happened is that now it smells nicer *sigh*

What do you think? Cheesy

Edit: I took down some of the photos

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.

You're amazing. All that knitting, criminy! I only know how to on a loom, so kudos to you! Also, those "psychedelic" gloves are totally my color, and I would steal those puppies in a second, haha.

Great job on it all. Have you thought about lining the itchy scarf with something like fleece, to stop it being itchy? Then you could still gift it to someone!  Wink

WOW!! Shocked Everything is so wonderful. I would totally steal those gloves too.  Wink
 Try lining the cotton scarf too, it will help stop the curl.

I would love to do a personal swap with you. PM me.

You have so many FOs.... Wish I'd started knitting a month ago on the stuff I wanted to make... Darn. Haha.

Your projects are awesome. I especially enjoy the socks for your brother.

I also love your hair colour. Super cute!!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
