Binding Off!!

I am so proud of myself-- I'm finally finishing up some Christmas presents! For my grandma, a hairpin lace scarf out of Sushi Socks. The pattern (Oat Couture PH605) calls for DK weight yarn but Sushi Socks is fingering weight, so I just held two strands together!

I also finished a pair of socks, but I can't tell you who they are for until after the big day. For these I used Back to Basics in Spiced Apple and the pattern Tyrolean Socks from the Winter 2007 Interweave Knits. I altered the pattern a bit to fit a man, though.

I still have a couple projects left to go, though. Like these socks for another special fellow. They are simple ribbed socks using two strands of Verve held together, one in Sinful and the other in Spiced Apple. Holding two strands together on size 5 needles makes the socks go really fast!

What have you finished?

I'm almost done with a felted bag- its for my cousin- from my sister. (who doesn't knit- but likes to give knitted gifts- and has a generous sister who will knit them)
