Feeling like a Beginner

Hi all. Time flies. Two weeks until Christmas. I have been learning and practicing Barbara Walker's 2-color slip stitch "Mosaic" technique. My local yarn store had a fun small two sided bag project using Ms. Walker's technique. The sides were attached using the I-cord bind off. It could be a small bag (or a fancy pot holder). It was the prefect size to practice on.

SKYP sock

These were completed last week. I wanted to make a pair of socks for my mother, I had the yarn sitting here for a long time, asking to be knit into socks, but I needed to find the right pattern.

A Simple Christmas Baby Blanket

Hello Guys,
I hope you are all getting your projects finished in time for Christmas. I still have a couple more to go, but got a baby blanket made for my bosses new baby girl. It's just simple washcloth design done on a bigger scale with 55% acrylic and 45% cotton. To even out the stitches, I threw it in the washer and then the dryer and it came out softer than when it went in.

Using up some stash

Here is a project I just started to use up 4 skeins of an Italian wool form Vernasco. The product is called I have two of each color way and I am alternating them every two rows in a seed stitch. I love the nubby texture. It will be a stocking stuffer for some lucky family member this Christmas.
