Holiday Knitting

I've been working on some simple Christmas gifts and ornaments. I carried along the beginnings of a log cabin lap blanket to Thanksgiving dinner with the in-laws.

Tonight I rolled a whole two pound cone of kitchen cotton into one comically enormous ball. I tried knitting from the cone and it just didn't work for me. So now I have a ballosaurus on the end table instead.

Double Moss Socks

This evening I finally finished the second sock of this pair. They will probably end up being a Christmas gift.

Yesterday I went to the local yarn shop for some circular needles, and stumbled on a liquidation sale. I got nine skeins of sock yarn, one skein of Crystal FX for holiday decorations, 2 skeins of baby DK Encore for baby gift stash, some stitch markers, and 2 Addi Turbo size 2 circulars all for $67.
