ribbed handwarmers

Finished these up last night. Phew, at least that's one thing finished. And the mega-bright Popsicle socks are going well. With luck I'll turn the heel tonight and start the gusset. All of which suggests to me that they'll also be done well in time for Christmas. Why is it that as Christmas approaches nearer and nearer, more and more good ideas for knitted gifts occur to me? Wonder if I can manage a couple more pairs of socks before the big day?

As I left for work this morning, Gavin was putting up the Christmas tree and hanging the stockings ... with only a few grumbles about those new, easy to assemble, prelit trees. Seems a bit early, but we received a couple of Christmas cards in the mail yesterday. And I'm happy to have the stockings up... gives me more time to look for little things to fill them with.
