Finally got around to taking pictures of the gifts I knitted my family. I still have a few more to knit (eek! ran out of time or did not plan my time properly either/or  Wink  ). Well here are the ones I did finish.

This is knitty's Thuja sock pattern I knitted for my dad. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn and I am quite pleased with how they turned out using acrylic yarn. I think I am going to knit him another pair using wool.



For my mom I knitted her the Baudelaire socks from Knitty. I love love love love this pattern. I actually started a pair for my sister as a practice pair and have yet to finish them (sigh I am hopeless). I used Filatura Di Crosa Zarina yarn.



I simply enjoy knitting Knitty's Fetching so I had to make a few pairs for gifts. However I only finished one pair of course. This pair I knitted for a friend. I used I believe RYC Cashsoft Aran.



And for my sister I knitted her a pair of Ysolda's Lace Up Opera Gloves. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn.



Well that's all I have for now. Hopefully I will finish the other gifts before the weekend is out.

Thanks for looking!

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.
