FO Friday: Gifty things

 Welcome all!

Time is growing short, Christmas will be here before you know it. Having reviewed my gift giving list, I may have shortened it however I seems that I am making larger and more complicated ones for those that are left…lol.

I have a plan to make washcloths, and wrap soap in them for stocking stuffers. Last year I made a Christmas balls for each of the family.

Remember November Socks

“Remember November socks” my latest design.

The new pattern can be found here.

Features: Toe-up, Spiral Toe, Texture, Spiral afterthought heel, Stretchy cast-off.

Skill required: Super easy, no special sock knitting skills required!

These socks are for my sons Christmas surprise, I have not made him a pair since he was little. He is now in the last year of University.

Funds raised from my sock patterns will be used to help my son pay off University loans.

Book of the week: I have been listening to

“Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” on YouTube.

Here are the links to the complete book,

“The Fellowship of the Ring” (Part 1 to 6)

“The Two Towers” Part 7, Part 8, Part 9.1, Part 9.2 (of 13)

What a pleasure to knit and listen. Enjoy!

    I haven’t tried the audio of LOTR, but I love those books. You’re so on top of things, I haven’t figured out much of anything Christmas yet.
