Holiday KAL 4!

Hey Everybody! Are you ready for Christmas yet (or Not)? I've been working madly on gifts for family - mostly socks and have several items to show off.
Gift #1 - Dan's Christmas Stocking. Made with CPY Lofty Wool (Sob! It's been discontinued). I started this right at the beginning of the Holiday KAL on Sept. 26. I finished it 10/8 and used a little of 400 yards. Its HUGE!

Gift #2 - Tour de Sock Stage #3 - Made for one of my sisters. Used 480 of Knitters Brewing Company Sock-aholic. Started 10/19. Finished 10/23

Gift #3 - Thuja for my brother Mike - Started these babies on 10/8 and finished on 10/27. Worked these up in Schoeller & Stahl Big Mexiko.

Gift #4 - Footies for my niece using one ball of Sausalito in Mediterranean. Started 11/26. Finished 11/27 (Quick knit - pattern is Lacy Summer Footlets from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders)

Gift #5 - Cable Mitts for another niece in Baby Face Mini Mochi (one ball). Started 11/27 and finished 12/2 - also a quick knit. This pattern is also from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders - Golden Eyelet Cable Mitts.

Gift #6 - Short socks for my nephew Ben. Used just over 200 yards of Knit Picks Essential Tweed sock yarn and worked in a K3, P1 ribbing. Started 12/8 and finished 12/9!

Gift #7 - Another pair of Lacy Summer Footlets for yet another niece in Panda Silk Strawberry Cream (one ball). Love this pattern. Started 12/9 and finished on 12/11!

Christmas knitting has turned into my part-time job! I really want to have a pair of socks for everyone with us for Christmas - so I've still have a few pairs left to make. My goal is to take a picture of everyone wearing their new socks. I'll be sure to post at the end of the month. I'm off now to knit some more...
