Last Post Until 2008

This will be my last finished project until after my gallbladder surgery later this week. It's just a little hat, scarf and mitts for my wonderful cleaning lady's grandson. I'm sure they will keep him toasty warm.

A very Merry Christmas to all my friends and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year.

Some Finished Items

These are little gauntlets I made for a friend as part of a Christmas present. Her office is a little chilly so I think she might like them. I didn't really have a pattern for these and ended up ripping the second one back to the cuff three times. I couldn't line up the cable pattern and I suppose taking codeine pills for my gallbladder pain didn't help much. Last night at midnight I finally had it lined up correctly and I finished them this morning.

Another little hat with ear flaps for baby Elliotte and some mitts to go with it. I added a little I-cord string to make sure they don't get lost right away. I remember how easy that is with a baby.

This hat looks small but it actually fits my 22 inch head but since I have enough hats for myself not it is being gifted to someone. I just don't know to whom yet but I will figure it out.

I started another baby hat today for my housekeeper's new grandson. I will make a scarf and mitts as well and I have a pretty pale blue wool yarn. I'm doing the same pattern as above because I really like cables and they add some density to the hat. Pictures of that next time. I really would like to finish my pinks socks and have almost reached the heel so maybe they will get finished this weekend as well, we shall have to see. It's kind of hard to knit when you in pain or taking codeine. Kind of messes up the concentration a bit. That would be my report for today, later kiddies...
