Christmas lights

Here are the Christmas lights that I have up in front of my house. It was so cold while I was taking the pictures my camera stopped working. We had a snow storm and got 7" on snow.

Bella mittens

These mittens were inspired by the Twlight movies. It's hard to see the cable that goes up the middle of the mittens from the picture but they are very pretty and easy to make. This is another pattern that I found on Raverly. If your a knitter and don't know about Raverly you are missing one of the best sites out there. Back to the mittens. They are made out of Malabrigo worsted weight and are soft and warm.

December socks

For the last pair of socks for the Sock of the month club 2009 I made shorty socks out of Fortissima socka yarn, Teddy color. The yarn is soft and full like chenille.They should be nice a warm this winter.
I have to say that I'm glad that I'm done with the sock of the month club. It was a great way to use up some of the massive amount of sock yarn that I have but it was hard some months to get them in. I do love all the socks and will enjoy wearing them.

Christmas stocking

Here is a special Christmas stocking that I made for a friends granddaughter's first Christmas. I made it in a soft pink and white from a pattern on Raverly. I didn't make it as long as the pattern because I wanted it to be child size compared to the adult stockings.
