It's That Time of Year Again

Tomorrow morning we're headed down to D.C. for Christmas with our longtime family friends, which means this weekend was time to whip up another hand-knit ornament. In the past, I've done a miniature sweater and sock. Here is this year's contribution (as you can see, we had a little fun with the photo shoot):

Using some leftover Knit Picks Sock Memories yarn (very old -- I think from my first Knit Picks order ever) and US 1/2.25 dpns, these took a whopping hour and half Friday night. A little fiddly because they're so small, but a satisfying knit nevertheless.

Here's another shot of the props for scale:

We'll be out of town (and away from the computer) until Wednesday. Merry Christmas to all of you celebrating, and happy winter to everyone!


  1. Have a great Tuesday and tell whoever is driving to drive safely! ;-) I'm so thankful to be living in Pittsburgh and not just visiting for a few days this year. I'm also very thankful for the new friends I've made since my return to the 'Burgh. Thanks for being part of that group!

  2. Those mittens are TOO cute! Have a safe trip and a Merry Christmas!
