Post Holiday Ahhhhhh ;-D

Hope you and yours enjoyed your Holiday Season.  Ours was fantastic this year.
  All the knitties went over in grand style and my fingers were glad for a tiny break.  Here's a few  odds and ends gifties that I passed out to loved ones.
These went to B.  I had a sneaky sack by the knitting nest so I could knit on them quickly while he was out of the house.  Phew...that was a close one.

OK, so maybe I am not so generous....I kept this one. ;-D

For SS Dustin and below for his love, Paige.  I know it's corney, but these match their new puppy!

AND, for (probably Piper) below a hat, 'cause I'm gonna' be a Sammaw.

Santa was VERY good to me and I spent the day yesterday, dashing about buying yarn and a swift and winder.  NOW, that's some fun stuff there ;-D

Couple of newbies

Here's a couple new pieces from the Knitting Nest.
This funky hat came to me in a dream where I was putting hats in the oven and baking them...huh?
I mad these hand warmers for our neighbor that plows our driveway in the winter ;-D
Thanks, Kevin!

Sock School

I had a nice quiet day at home yesterday so decided with a book and DVD to send my self to "sock school"  I used the book "Sock Knitting Master Class " by Ann Budd as my guide.  The DVD was vital in me getting the drift of things.  By the end of the day I had made my first pair of socks.  I have wanted to knit socks for ages and ages ;-DDD
  I also made a scrunchie cowl to go with the Parrot Head beret I posted earlier.
