Closer and closer

Closer and closer to Christmas, so less and less I have to
write about.  I did finish up the Wisconsin Winter Socks.

 Jeannine made some and I loved hers. Size 8 needle, cAst on 48 stitches, and go
down to 40....FAST !!
I used Berocco Vintage Yarn, and Knitpicks Stroll (from stash). 
I picked the Vintage because it is 52% acrylic, 40% wool, and 8% nylon.
I thought they would wear and wash well. 

Ruth is making some owlie socks for her niece-in-law who is crazy for
owls. Sweet Georgia yarn. Lettuce wrap color. Ow lie pattern by Julie Elswick Suchomel.

They look so nice and soft.

In other news, Joe and I went to the Christmas parade in Holley last night.
Kind of fun...short and sweet...

 Till next week....happy knitting.
