Saver sox and more Christmas FO's!!!

Remember, way back in July, when I came back from Woolfest I had bought some strange looking wooden objects?

Well I have completed the first Christmas "Saver Sock", only an other 4 to go!

Here it is! Resplendent in all its glory!

It is for DH's niece over in Holland for her Christmas. The other 4 are for her brother, one of the boys friends and not forgetting Ronan and Robert.
Can't give ya the boring bit, coz I've lost the ball band, suffice to say it is knitted in sock yarn found in my stash. Since it was for a 10 year old girl I opted for purples and pinks and did it in a lacey pattern - Snowflake lace socks from Magknits.

This is a great idea if you have "one sock syndrome"!!!

Now for some FO's

Yup there is even some more Christmas knitting finished......Oh boy I'm doing quite well with that.

This is scarf number 4, its knitted from sock yarn. I think I mentioned it in a previous post...Well it is now done. That's all 4 of the boys teachers presents finished.

It was my friend Jules's birthday last Friday, so I knitted her a scarf. She is currently doing a gardening course at college and there is a lot of outdoor stuff, so I thought a nice warm scarf would just be the perfect pressie for her.

She loves knitted stuff and was well pleased with this one.

It is knitted from 2 balls of Rowan Kid Classic shade 834. There is 140m/153 yards per 50g and it's knitted on 5-5.5mm needles. Kid classic is a blend of 76% lambswool, 26% kid mohair and 4% nylon and should be hand washed.

The pattern I used "Simple Ascot", which can be found on page 57 of "Knit Ponchos, Wraps and Scarves" by Jane Davis, published by KP books.
This was a really easy pattern, with only 3 rows to remember! (2 of which were knit!)

Oh well better get knitting, as have just discovered I have some birthday knitting to complete as well as the Christmas stuff!!!!!
