Christmas knitting and more

December 2012 was certainly a very busy knitting month for me.  While keeping up with knitting classes, I had a few last minute Christmas gifts to finish. Some of the items included a nice ribbed pattern scarf for my son and wool socks for my hubby.  Lionel prefers knitted wool items for his outdoor adventures in winter, because it keeps him warm and dry.  It was my very first attempt at socks, and I must say, they turned out really well.  This year I am going to attempt to finish all my Christmas gifts in summer. I will add a picture of the socks next time.

Some of my other projects included cowls and fingerless mitts.  These are perfects for gifts and they knit up really fast. 

Knitting classes keep me busy and I am enjoying it.  I am also happy to see that there is an increased interest in my classes for knitting and felting purses.  It is so rewarding to see each purse takes shape once it is felted. It never gets old.

Until next time, happy knitting!!
