But today you get my latest finished project. This was a fast one, and very easy, but enjoyable nonetheless, and it ticks off one of the things on my gift list for Christmas.
Project: Oden's Christmas Socks
Pattern: Rye, by Tin Can Knits, Toddler size
Needles: US 3 and US 5
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted, colorway 1386 (Christmas Red), and 1004 (Peppermint)
Modifications: Only making the cuffs and toes in a different color than the rest of the sock.
Notes: This was a fun and quick knit for my great-nephew Oden - a small project, thicker yarn than sock yarn, happy and cheery colors, and a gift. They may be a bit big for him, but better bigger than too small. I have no illusions that these will be his favorite gift, but I do think they will keep his feet warm.
I started and finished these in the period of eight days, and it only took me that long because for five of those days, I didn't get a chance to knit at all! Seriously, you could finish both socks in a day if you just spent the time knitting. This is also a really nice pattern, well-written and easily understandable, with lots of good illustrations where needed. On top of which, it's free, so why aren't you using it to make many pairs of socks??? I know that once my gift knitting is complete, I'm making a pair for myself. :-)
I hope everyone has a good weekend - see you next week!
