I would like to share a little knitting project with you, however! I've dived headfirst into the deep end of the sock knitting pool, and I found the most awesome sock pattern book ever! It is "Knitted Socks East and West", by Judy Sumner (photo of the cover below). I've already knit three patters from the book and they all turned out great!
Here is a photo of a pair of socks in progress. I've actually completed the pair now, but will have to wait to show you that until after Christmas. :) Many family members read my blog, so I don't want to give too much away. I used a wonderful yarn by Indigo Moon, which is a company in Canada. They only sell their yarn in one store in the US - Twisted, in Portland, OR. I was in Portland last month for a CTMH conference and discovered this shop and yarn. Oooh boy was I in heaven! You can also buy Indigo Moon from their website. I have both Twisted and Indigo Moon's blogs/websites to the left in my sidebar.
Happy Christmas Prepping everyone! I still have about 13 projects to finish by Christmas!
