New Year Projects
Well, I finished everything I had planned to make for Christmas gifts before Christmas. I had to start in August to do it though. I made socks for almost all of my family. My son got socks in Chicago bears colors. His son Brody received Superman socks. the others received socks but these two pair were in special colors and patterns. Brody asked early on for colors of Superman to go with his Spiderman slippers my mother knitted for him last year. Of course he now wants Spiderman ones with the webs knitted in. A new thing to learn. I learned to knit and crochet balaclava's this last year and made one for my son and one for my Step-father. I knit and crocheted socks, sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, dishclothes, ponchos, squares, wooden hanger covers and so much more. The sad part is that I was in such a hurry to get everything wrapped that I forgot to take photos of my creations to post. This time I am going to get some pics taken first while I remember and am starting early this year, in January. I have so far crocheted a 12" square (Chris Simon's Cygnus www.geocities.com/cdjsimon ) that will be put with others for afghans, a knitted Edgar scarf www.knitty.com that looks like diamonds using red heart circus print, and a knitted Quaker Ribbed Bottom Hat www.frugalhaus.com/homepage/quakerhat.htm .
I'm hoping to post more pics of what I have done and the link to the pattern if possible.
