Picking up where we left off

Barbara showed us the progress she has made on her granddaughter's Christmas stocking today. She was hoping to have it finished by now but it's been a challenge. It has to be knitted flat so she can knit the snowman Intarsia style. He looks really cute and Barb promises to take pictures of it when it's finished so I can post. She is looking forward to her granddaughter's first Christmas.
Kathleen had enough yarn left from last week's vest to make a hat and mittens, sans thumbs. They'll be added soon. Today she started another V neck vest which I'm sure will be finished the next time we meet.
And here it is. The yarn is a wool, acrylic and viscose blend in a deep forest green with tweed flecks. It knits up beautifully and will make a nice finished vest.
Maureen's Wingspan is a little farther along since last week.
And Dorah found some unfinished objects, otherwise known as UFO's. She couldn't find the pattern for these fingerless mitts but I'm sure she'll figure it out.
And look at this lovely Irish Hiking Scarf she is picking back up again. The yarn is so soft!
Beth had a bit of an issue with her yarn. It's going to be another cloche made with those telephone pole sized double pointed needles of hers.
Here is what it will look like when it's finished. I showed you this one last time but it didn't have it's button yet, a perfect finishing touch.
Carole worked on mitts tonight. It's hard to tell the color here but it's a lovely rich blend of purples almost burgundy. Really pretty!
And finally I started another man's scarf using Jojoland Rhythm yarn. It's a variegated color that will go well with jeans since the colors range from denim to gray and navy.
We will be taking the next two weeks off to be with our families for the holidays. We all wish you a blessed Christmas and happy and healthy new year!
