I finished a few items, quick knits all.
First, hand warmers with a bracelet knitted in to them. Kits and pattern for these will be available through Clickitysticks.com
I used Jitterbug sock yarn and a metallic yarn. accenting the bracelet with beads.
I think these will be a gift, one of my sisters admired them and there is always Christmas. Or just because! I think they are going to Stitches first though. At least that was the plan.
Next, bed socks. Soft, warm and cozy bed socks. The pattern is called winter socks by Bev Galeskas and can be found in the Fiber Trends booklet #2013 The Magic Loop. I used a lovely acrylic wool blend yarn by Ella Rae called Amity. Both the yarn and booklet were purchased at Knitter's Palette in Lakeville.
These went very quickly, can be done in two or three days for the pair.
I want to make another pair before winter, maybe add some fair isle work to it.
My most recent FO is a cute little coin purse called "Change your socks" I purchased the kit by CiDesigns at Knitter's Palette and I used Noro Kureyon from my stash to make the little sock. So cute, so quick and gratifying.
Oh, knit this up in a few hours. perfect little last minute gift.
I was so excited, I had to put coins in right away. I could make a few more pairs with this skein of Noro. These would make cute gifts, I htink the next one will drop a needle size, I did get the guage for the ribbing, but the sockseems a bit larger than the samples that were at Knitter's Palette.
