Christmas tree hat is from http://www.materialwhirled.com/. Isn't it cute? Yarn is unique handspun by Reenie and tree ornaments added during spinning.

This is angel of love dishcloth from http://www.knitwits-heaven.com/ using PnC Ecru.This is mid-November monthly dishcloth KAL. It was designed by those ladies at knit-wits heaven. There was a mistake in the rows that we didn't catch till finished so I intend to frog this and make another later using different color yarn. That's why ends aren't woven.
This is fishtail lace bookmark using DMC traditions and size 1 needles. It is the monthly bookmarks KAL mid-November.

This is Rachel's knitting room's KAL for November. It too was designed by Alli and Lisa at Knitwits Heaven. Suggested yarn was solid yellow which I didn't have so I used this. It's SnC. I'm not up on my cartoon characters so I don't know the name of this.

This is the other half of the mid-November monthly dishcloth KAL. I was expecting Christmas theme so will frog this and make another using different color.

This is Pretty Kitty fingertip made with PnC ecru. Pattern is from http://www.knitwits-heaven.com/ (yes, I like their patterns).

OTN--pi shawl for Julie, Little Twisted socks, Tranquility soap sack. I have about 4 more Christmas projects to make. Then I can knit more socks which I truly love to do.

Shopping's done--still knitting

I'm still doing Christmas knitting. I finished Pretty Kitty dishcloth this week and started a matching fingertip. Pretty Kitty was designed by www.knitwits-heaven.com. I also finished sock 1 of A Little Twisted Socks and am working on my pi shawl. Christmas knitting is caught up but still have some to do. So I'd better go knit.

Christmas is a coming

Busily making Christmas gifts here as well as making a pair of a little twisted socks for me and a pi shawl for a friend. Here are projects finished the last few weeks.

These are not a Christmas gift. Well, maybe they are. They're my Dublin Bay sock-a-long socks made with Regia Bamboo on size 0 needles. They were a little big in the foot so will probably cut back about 8 sts for next pair. I tumbled them dry and that helped.
This is Nativity washcloth from www.knitwits-heaven.com using PnC ecru. I made three of these for gifts. Recipients will receive matching fingertips on their birthdays.There's little squirrel in there. I liked this pattern. It's the November KAL for monthly dishcloth group. Yarn is Bernat Handicrafter sage green. Yes it's a UFO. This is November KAL from monthly bookmark group. Designer is Liz Hanson. I was short about a yard of this very special hand-dyed DMC Traditions dyed by my friend Brian (www.brileyknits.blogspot.com). I will frog this and rework using about 6 stitches less.

Another Christmas gift. This is Lighthouse washcloth from www.knitwits-heaven.com made using PnC ecru.

OTN--a little twisted socks, Pretty Kitty dishcloth, and Pi shawl for my friend.
