blender socks

I made another pair of blender socks for my friend Andrea.
She loves wool socks, and this pattern is so great for using up scraps.

doll close up

Here are a few pictures of the dolls I made in December.
The purple I made for Squirrel and the white one(snow baby) I made for fun.I haven't quite decided what to do with it yet, but I just might have to keep it.
I love knitting the doll bodies for these-they knit up fairly quickly and are just adorable.

I do not enjoy doing laundry at ALL! But I must admit, last week when I was pulling my clothes out of the washing machine, I had such a great sense of accomplishment-I was pulling out of the machine our families collection of hand knit socks, hand knit dishcloths & slippers that I had made over the years.
This time of year I love pulling out the wool socks-my husband by far owns the most pairs, and I will continue to make them for him because he Loves them. He is one of those guys who never asks for anything for himself- one thing he does love, are the knitted socks made by me. HOw can a girl say no to that?

ANd how can that same girl, who has made so many socks, abandon these wrist warmers that were started in 2008?-I stopped after the first one!!

My January goal is to finish the other wrist warmer.

What are your project goals for January,and what is longest it has taken you to finish a project?

wish me luck-now I am off to memorize a fairytale for school!!yes! memorize!!!
