Finished for the year

The doily turned out to be a giant at almost 30 inches across - perfect topper for my round kitchen table (if I could just locate the table top?)
Cluster stitch doily from American Needlecraft 1955, using unidentified cotton thread and 1.5mm hook.


The Green Artifact socks were completed in time to become the Father's Christmas gift. He was very happy with the addition to his sock drawer.
Artifact toes by Sarah Huerta knit in repurposed unidentified sock yarn with 2.5mm needles.


The pretty teal silk mix yarn became another pair of socks from the Little Bonbons pattern.
This time in size medium for gifting to J's mum.
Knit in Cascade Heritage silk on 2.5mm and 2.75mm needles - this yarn was just delightful to work with and I will be saving some pennies to acquire more soon.

Thanks to Kris and Peg for hosting OPAM again this year and to all the other participants who post their amazing finishes each month which inspires my own creativity.

Thanks to Linda and Ana for the Stash Buster challenge this year. It has been both fun and challenging to work through some of the yarn stash and see everyone's wonderful finishes throughout the year. Lots of inspiration to keep the needles clicking.

Wishing all the people who come here for a peek in my creative space a Wonderful 2014.
Enjoy whichever way you like to celebrate and stay safe and cool.

Knew that doiley had delusions of grandeur and wanted to be a tablecloth!...the socks work by the way, foot length exactly right and they are soooooo soft :)...
