done, done and almost
Yes, the red mittens are done. Very comfortable and warm - perfect for scraping the ice off the windshield on these frosty Canadian mornings. Might have to make another pair for me, because immediately after the last end was woven in, they were wrapped and placed under the tree with someone else's name on the gift tag.
The Popsicle socks are also done. After breakfast this morning I grafted the toe of the second sock to finish the pair. It was with a pang of regret that I finished them - the pattern was really fun and easy. I'm very pleased with these, especially the bobbles. The bamboo stretch yarn knit up beautifully and the pink, orange and yellow colours make these the happiest socks ever. Hopefully the person who unwraps them Christmas morning will enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoyed making them!
The emergency sweater? Almost. The knitting's done, including the neck. Just seams and weaving in ends left. Should be ready to wrap tomorrow.
