Finished!!!

I have finished all of the Christmas knitting that I planned on doing. On Friday I exchanged gifts with Eddie. I finished his beanie the night before while playing Scrabble with my sister. This is an excellent game to play while knitting because sometimes your opponent(s) take a LONG time to decide on what word to play! Here is the beanie:

I looked at a couple of patterns on Ravelry and then just combined parts of several different patterns together to make his hat. He picked out the yarn and told me what kind of beanie he wanted, so it wasn't too much of a surprise.

I gave him the socks that I showed in the "P.S." blog posting, but they were too small :( Maybe I will give them to my mom. She has tiny feet. I also gave Eddie the Planet Earth box set because he is fascinated by that kind of stuff.

I was very spoiled this Christmas! I received diamond earrings and new running shoes. The diamonds earrings that I got are the one in my ear lobe (not the cartilage):

(I know, I know...I have extremely thick earlobes. Ha! When I first got my ears pierced they told me to leave the earrings in for 8-10 weeks instead of the usual 6 weeks. Lol!)

This evening I finished the stocking for my mom. I really wanted to give it to her last night, but that's ok. I finished it in time for her to hang it tomorrow for Santa :) I blocked it this morning and put it in front of the heater to dry. It was still slightly damp when I seamed it together.

And the two stockings together:

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!!

Eddie's hat is super! I really like the top, and how you did the decreases. And your stockings are great! It's too bad that the socks didn't fit. But, you could always send them my way. ;) Merry Christmas!

SRYO = some weird kind of heel specified (and not explained well) for the Snicket socks. I think it stands for "short row yarn over." Anyway, I'm making some baby socks, and they call for the same type of heel, but this pattern actually explains it! Yay.
