FOs, UFOs and stash enhancement

first, to prove that i CAN finish things...the FOs



specs:

Blackberry Beanie

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Cascade 220 in dark brown. lost the tag :)
Needles: clover size 7 circs and clover dpns
Mods: none

i set the unnamed foam head with the hat on my kitchen counter. the husband walked by, stopped, pulled the beanie off the foam head and placed it on his own. he looked at himself in the mirror and then demanded that i make the same exact one for him, only a little looser and longer...so here is UFO #1



i finished kyle's black socks, and he was very pleased to finally receive them



Specs:
Pattern: yarn harlots basic sock pattern
Yarn: Dale of norway baby ull
Needle: size 2

this first sock is a christmas present for my brother... (act surprised when you get it, Anthony)



and now, the stash enhancement!!!



omg. there's blue koigu and the other three are claudia handpainted yarn. the colors for the CHP are paprika, just plum and john B. i finally realized that the sock yarn itself is the justification for sock knitting. i don't particularly like knitting socks but, my goodness, sock yarn is amazing!

ok, off to the bay area for turkey day! happy thanksgiving to all!
