Pre-Christmas Stay-cation

December 18, 2011 at 9:14 pm 13 comments

It was quite a week-

Measuring and mixing.

Beating and blending.

Scraping and rolling.

Baking, cooling, frosting.

Packing and Shipping.

But I made it. All 13 batches of it.

Then I sent it off to friends and family. (ok, not ALL of it. I kept a little for local munching)

And I’m afraid I didn’t take any pictures of the process. I was just glad to get it all done in time.

Of course, I made sure to take wool breaks to ensure I retained my sanity in the midst of all this cookie craziness.

Exhibit A- Oscar Socks

I started these socks months ago, when the recipients feet were only as long as the white part! Yeeks!

Exhibit B- Custom Photo Glove/Mitts

These are a not-so-secret Christmas present for The Man. Still need thumbs and index fingers (with openings for finger tips), but I’m getting close!

And the spinning-

Mioget Shetland with blonde mohair and gold tussah silk, Border Leicester, and some CVM/Suffolk cross.

Yum. High fiber goodies. Healthiest things I made all week!

Now perhaps I can just relax and enjoy the holidays 🙂

      Me too. You can never have enough handknit socks. I especially like them in the natural white/gray combo. they look so homey.

    The spinning looks fantastic, the sheen is beautiful! Those socks look incredibly soft and warm.

      Thanks Christine- I do love a nice sheen 🙂 And all reports indicate that the socks are indeed soft and warm. The recipient apparently is refusing to take them off!
