Oh, What Knitting I Have Finished!
First, we have the Grandma Shawl.
Yarns: Alpaca With a Twist Fino 100% Alpaca laceweight (yummy) and Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Mohair Wool

Mods: None, shockingly
Second, a lovely hat for Will.
Yarn: Malabrigo 100 % Merino Wool in Autumn Forest
Needle: US 7 Clover DPNs
Pattern: Um, pattern? What pattern? I've knit some hats before, so I put some K2P2 ribbing in and some stockinette, and I worked out the decreases for the top.
Third, socks! Happy KPPPM socks made from the beautiful yarn that Kristi sent me.
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM 2 skeins 100% merino wool
Needles: US 1 Brittany birch DPNs
Pattern: Wendy Knits Generic Toe-Up socks slightly modified to fit my foot and a K3P3 ribbed cuff
My trip out to California was great. Smooth flights, good hotel, good shows, great people. I got to see my Jeannie and her family, and Scott. It was so relaxing for me. Plus, I got a lot of knitting done. A hat and socks people. In four days. With flights and traveling and judging and eating and talking and sleeping and I still managed a pair of socks and a hat. I'm ecstatic. Tonight is finishing night for some lingering projects like the glove that I started in October.
Then I have plans to start a hat for Mike and Mom's ornament, the last two things on my knit list for Christmas. I'll probably knit a couple of catnip mice for Zoie and Stash and Hook too, but those are so small I can knit them on Christmas if need be. :)
Don't forget to enter my contest by leaving me your favorite holiday memory. I'll be pulling a name on Saturday night or Sunday morning. You see, Saturday we're going to Cross Hart Farm to pick out a Brittany puppy for Will.
