Some holiday knitting

I started early this year. I have finished 2 1/2 pairs of socks for some of the young men in our family. Last year I knit socks for all the women. In May I finished socks for my son. pictures on my blog.

I seem to have missed showing the next pair on my blog, but they are for the DH of DD#1. I don't seem to have a picture of the finished socks. Here's a view of the pattern. The pattern is Crusoe from Knitty by Marilyn Roberts, because they are stranded. The yarn is from Herrschner's, bought on sale a couple of years ago.

I finished one more sock this weekend, for husband of DD#3 (The man I skipped got socks last year). I'll show progress on that in another post. I also have a scarf and some dishcloths in my gift drawer, with no particular person in mind.

I have two BIL to knit for this holiday season, and possibly both SIL too.
all are wonderful folks, but in the "what's a thank you note?" generation so we never are even told if our gift boxes arrive, let alone getting a thank you.
am actually thinking about doing some gorgeous CPY cotton chenille facecloths as gifts - they look and feel like velvet, and are a ball to make [ahem, it's my own new pattern]
blessings, L
