When I have some yarn, my the first idea is to try what kind of socks I could make. That means I have a big box of socks and soon two big boxes...

Here are some from the last year (plus some mittens too):



And some from this year:



A great hobby while I am wathcing TV. Thatīs unfortunately may lead to wathcing TV too much...

You must have a very colourful sock drawer!

I also love knitting socks, but I'm having to branch out as I have so many pairs, and nobody else who appreciates them.

Oh yes, thatīs a problem (too many pairs) but before I made too many sweaters. After 30 of them I realised I can hardly use them all, some might be in my wardrope for years and they take much more space there than socks. Anyways, socks wear out faster when using them than sweaters.

New socks with "Christmas red" color for mommy:



Colors like the hat of the Christmas elf. Not sure about others but here in Finland elf has a big role at the Christmas time. Almost as big as Santa has.

Nobody in your family will have cold feet on Christmas, for sure. Well done.

Once again - the Christmas socks:



These are the last ones - now no time to make more by this theme. New year, new sock themes.
