A wee bit closer....

Over the weekend I finished 2 pairs of ankle socks for Christmas gifts. I don't have pics of them yet, but will soon. And it'll be safe to post them, as they are for my grandmothers, and neither of them have access to the internet. And that being the case, here is what I got done.

For Grandma Nana (mom's mom) - a pair of lacy ankle socks in Knit Picks Memories color Yukon. I used 1 50 gm ball and just made it, as grandma has a big foot. I started these on Saturday night, got the heel on the first sock and finished them on Sunday.

For Grandma Jeannine (dad's mom) or Grandma Ja-Jean as the girls call her (Katie couldn't say her name right when she was little) - a pair of lacy ankle socks (same pattern as the others) in Knit Picks Memories color Red Hat. I used 1 50 gm ball and had more left over than the other pair, as Jeannine has smaller feet than I do, and I have little feet. I started these on Friday eveing at mom's while the girls helped mom put up the tree, got to the heel and finished them on Saturday.

So, that leaves me with 3 pairs of sock, 2 1/2 pairs of fingerless gloves, a hat and 3/4 of a scarf left to make by Christmas Eve. So, I am off to lunch to cast on for a pair of Simply Lovely lace socks for my cousin Savannah. I'll be able to post picks of these, too, as she doesn't even know I have a blog.

Till later.

I thought I only had three more pairs of felted mittens to make for gifts. I recounted today, and I really need five! Plus two pairs of work socks and two pairs of felted slippers. There was more I wanted to make, but these are musts. Then it's all over, and I can get back to some socks for me! I say next year I won't leave it so late to start knitting Christmas gifts, but I also said that last year, and nothing changed.
