Yesterday I went on one of my favourite types of sprees – a finishing spree! I finished up three different projects yesterday, and today I’ve given them all a bath so they’re soft and ready to go.

I got about 2/3 of the way through the foot of the second cabley sock before I had to join a new ball of yarn. I do think you could do a pair of plainer socks out of just one skein – these ones take more yarn because of the ribbing and cables! A little while later…

all done!

The cables really keep this pattern moving, and of course, the thicker yarn helps with the speed too! I hope the recipient likes them.

This hot water bottle cozy is knit from 2 strands of Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton on 6mm needles. Just needs a couple of buttons at the bottom.

These aren’t a gift, but I’m still glad to have finished them! A pair of flip-tops with the same details as my Fred+Ginger Cardigan, so if you’re not quite ready to commit to a whole sweater you can still knit some pretty ruffles. These used less than 1 skein of Sweetgeorgia Superwash Sport and just a little bit of the CashSilk Fine.

They’re sized to fit my tiny hands, but the pattern will be written for three different sizes. Look for it in the new year!

I’d better get back to it, these presents aren’t going to wrap themselves. Darn.

P.S. A few people asked about the snowflake lights – they’re just from Ikea. I think they’re probably on sale by now if you’ve got one near you!

    Flip-tops are lovely! I’ve got tiny hands too and I always have problem with mittens. They have too long fingers :( So it’s nice that you’re pattern will be in 3 sizes!
    Cheers!
