I finished Dad's socks in time. He opened them Christmas morning and the cutest smile slid across his face. He put them on immediately and proclaimed them soft and warm and a perfect fit! He is colorblind but can see the rich brown stripes.
I received no knitting presents, but plenty of other awesome and thoughtful things. Did you all see the hilarious gift list primer for non-knitters over at Yarn Harlot here? And check out Eunny Jang's photo galleries: See that orange Bayerische? Those are mine! Yay!
Happy New Year everybody!

Is anyone else madly finishing the Christmas knitting?
I've been knitting a sock all day. In a flash of foresight I made them toe-up socks, thinking that a shorter ankle is more acceptable than toe-less socks. My butt hurts. I'm almost through my Netflix and there is no mail until Tuesday. My wrists are sore. These socks are for my Dad, who has yet to experience my hand-knit socks. I really hope he likes them.
Merry Christmas, Everybody!

The new Hawaii Island Journal came out last Friday, and has my contribution to the West-Side Holiday Gift Guide: Jan's Sheep Ornaments! The PDF of the entire article can be found here, and the section and photo is at the top of Page 2. I fear I have damned her entire December to felting miniture sheep.
