There was a lot of crafting this Christmas, though not so much by me. I received some fabulous socks from my sister-in-law Stacey:
I thought the pillow would make a nice background, but it just looks a little silly. Oh well. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern:
They fit perfectly--much better than the two pairs of socks I've made for myself! And she said that the Illini
colors were dyed especially for me. (We couldn't bear to watch U of I lose in the Rose Bowl yesterday, so we watched a movie instead. Well, there's always next year!)
Then we received these beautiful embroidered pillowcases from my sister:
She also made some very yummy snickerdoodles for the husband--his favorite!
Still no pictures of the felted clogs, though they have gotten a ton of wear. My last FO of 2007 is a pair of fingerless gloves:
Notice how I'm also wearing my Apricot Jacket? I just cast on 25 stitches of Marcela from Handpaintedyarn.com (from the odds and ends section), knit a while, made a hole for my thumb, knit a bit more, cast off, and made a tube. They're too big, but they were nice and cozy for our visit to the snowy Midwest!
