I know I lied, and there is no FO picture of the Upstream Socks. Corrine tried them on, and wore them last night, but I didn't get a picture. Oops. Hey, but they fit, and she loves them. Can't ask fr more than that!
Yesterday, because I deserve a break every now and then, I did some shopping for me. I bought a skein of the new Noro Sock yarn! How cool is this!
All the Noro goodness, in a sock yarn. I am smitten... even if it is hand wash only.
I also picked up a skein of Angora Extra to make my Mom some quickly mitts. There is no way her purse will be finished, so mitts it is. Last night I finished(ish) Holiday shopping, baked a pie, and made cookies for Thursday. I only had about another hour in me, but I managed to make all but the thumb of one mitt.
These are going to be for Grandma R. (Yes, it is more of the Miracle of the Macabees yarn. I am now up to a sweater, a shawl, a pair of mittens, a hat, and these mitts. And I'll still have a skein when I'm finished.) If I had two hours to put together, when I wasn't dead on my feet, I could most likely knit a pair in an evening. I'm crossing my fingers that I have a little time on Wednesday night and Thursday night to knit, and to finished my gifts! dude, and to wrap them. Ugh.
