the end of xmas

my brother and his wife received their gifts yesterday, so here they are.

Mimi Verylong scarf, knitpicks shadow in vineyard, less than one skein, #9 bamboo dpns (only 2--I needed the grabiness of bamboo). with fringe, the scarf is a little over 60", i think, so it's not so verylong.

i've actually made this pattern once before, so it went smoothly and quickly. i love the bias diagonal ends of the scarf.

for my brother: widdershins from knitty, briggs and little durasport in grey, less than one skein, #2 addi turbos using magic loop. the foot length is 12".

i had a few problems with the heel on sock #1, but i think it was because i was excessively tired. the second sock went smoothly. i will probably use this pattern again for toe-up socks. i was pleasantly surprised by the yarn. it softened up a great deal after washing, and produced a spongy thick fabric. i would use this yarn again for socks, despite all the vegetable matter.

now that i'm done, i picked up the bubble pullover again. i am working on sleeve #1. it's high time that i had a new sweater.

  1. Dannnng! Your FOs are all impressive. I really like that Mimi Verylong. And wow, your brother's feet are 12" long? (Yup, this is why I can't fathom knitting a man socks!)
