Making Christmas

With the fair, ebook, and Empire Line projects finally out of the way, it’s time to start focusing on Christmas knits. I don’t have a tonne planned for this year, and a few are already completed (as fair projects they did double duty!).

All that’s left is two pairs of heavy ocks, and four hats. Nothing I can’t whip up in the time that’s left until the big day.

Since the socks are heavy, and will knit up really quick, I decided to focus on them first.

The first pair is already half done.

The yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley Aran – colourway is Blue Tit. If they look a little familiar, I made Dad a similar pair for Father’s Day earlier this year in the Owl colourway.

Both Dad and my brother love heavy socks, so these are always a hit. Once this pair is done, I’ll start on Dad’s.

    Yah for you!!! Sounds like no last minute rush for Christmas. Love those socks. The colors are just beautiful and beg for a pair of jeans. What a great gift!
