For Christmas 2010 I made four projects. With Charlie around there hasn’t been as much time to knit, so I didn’t want to commit to knitting a bunch of deadline knitting.
The first is a Stocking for Everett, the newest addition to our extended family. It matches the one I made for his sister, Annora, a few years ago except that while her’s was predominately white, Everett’s is mostly red. It`s made out of Red Heart Soft Touch and I used just a basic sock formula with a short-row heel and gathered toe.
The only under the tree present that I made were Dad’s 13th Socks. These are the same as Dad’s 12th Socks that I finished a few months ago, made out of Knit Picks Stroll Sport. This is one of the few Christmases that Dad has been given socks without needles attached.
As a last minute gift I made a few of my co-workers Christmas Bell Ornaments. They were made from bits for Mom’s stash of Christmas Acrylic and each takes about an hour from start to finish. I managed the four that I made in less than 24 hours.
The final Christmas project I made was a Stocking for Inca, my parent’s new puppy. Mom started a stocking for Charlie but was running low on time so I offered to help out by making one for Inca. I finished it up on Christmas Eve. Now the dogs have matching stockings, Inca’s is white, Charlie’s is green, and Fidget’s is red.
