I am STILL working on Christmas gifts. Four of them have been received so here, finally, is the first round of Christmas gifts!
This pair was for Rita, Patrick's sister. I used the Jaywalker pattern by Grumperina that I found on Ravelry. It's a quick and easy pattern and I love how the yarn worked in this pattern! I knit these in Blue Ridge Yarn Jubilee.
This pair was for Teri, Patrick's brother's wife. I used the Monkey pattern from Knitty. These were also knit from Blue Ridge Jubilee.
This pair was for Patrick's brother, John. I used the pattern, Mr. Pitt's Socks and they were knitted in Noro Kureyon Sock yarn.
Last but not least, the Sudoku afghan for my mother and father-in-law. I used Vanna's Choice and made up the pattern myself. I used shades of blues and grays in honor of my father-in-law's Air Force career and a Sudoku puzzle in honor of my mother-in-law's love of puzzles.
As far as I know, all the gifts were loved.
In other news, I have officially lost 10.8 pounds as of December 24th. Yay me!
