Well, Christmas came and went. I managed to complete ten presents out of an expected eighteen. A scarf for DH, socks for both my sister and my niece, hats and scarves for my nephews, and a blanket for Sophie. I also knitted a scarf for a colleague, but gave it to her last month. Here's Sophie and her blankie, and my niece modeling her socks.
I also managed to save a few pair of socks. A few weeks ago, I went for a vacation at my parent's and took three pairs of socks for which I still had yarn. My Mom taught me how to darn them, but I must admit that her method is not quite seamless. At least I get to keep those socks for a bit, or until I knit myself a few more pairs.
