The Christmas gifts have been received! They are also all loved. Time for the show and tell.
The first is the afghan I made for my parents. I used the same Sudoku idea I did for the afghan I made for my in-laws. In this case I only used two colors and chose one number on the puzzle to randomly disperse the accent color. They really liked it and said it matches the living room wonderfully.
For my brother, I made Mr. Pitt's Socks out of Lion Brand Sock-Ease.
I also made Mr. Pitt's Socks for my brother-in-law, Paul. I made these out of Misti Alpaca Handpainted Sock yarn.
Also out of Misti Alpaca are my sister's socks. I used Cookie A's Hedera pattern from Knitty.com.
Last but not least are the socks I made for my sister-in-law, Andrea. For these I adapted a stitch pattern from volume one of the Vogue Stitchionary. It's the closest I've come to designing my own pattern. I made these out of Conjoined Creations Flat Feet.
I'm almost done with my first Mingus sock. It looks awesome! I will want invisible shoes to wear with them.
