Holiday Crafting

The relaxed pace of this time of the year (read not much happening after all the busyness of the past few weeks) means time for finishing some of the projects which have been waiting in the wings for their turn.

First up I finished the second of the brown Czarina's Lace anklets.
I am happy they are almost a pair - I'll be keeping them for me because I omitted a couple of rows on the second one, it wont interfere with their ability to keep my feet warm next time it's cold.

I was working on these while at the Old Peoples on Christmas Day and got some orders from family members - I should have just gone ahead and made this Christmas a sock fest.
More socks in my near future, starting with the second blue Davidson Road sock for The Father.
Both the Czarinas lace and Davidson Road patterns are from Knitting Knee Highs by Barb Brown.

While Ms16 was staying last weekend she did a little knitting - making this cup cosy.
She was very happy with her finished project.

I managed to hook up this wash cloth and jar cosy in the days before Christmas.
They were added to some gifts.


Hope your holiday includes some time for stitches.
