Fa la la FOs

I've been a busy elf.

I finished the Garter Stripe hat (pattern coming soon!)




I also finished Tiny Turtle (Ravlink):





Specs:
Yarn: Leftovers of Southwest Trading Co. Therapi from Hat Attack 2
Pattern: Tiny Turtle by Raynor Gellatly
Mods: None!
Thoughts: Quick, Easy, and Cute!


I picked my mom's socks back up. Why was I thinking I could wait 9 days before Christmas to knit the foot of one sock, and the entirety of the other? Hmmm?

Anyway, I finished the bottom bit of the cuff and wove in the 10,000 ends...

Before:


After:



Vanity shot:

Look, A heel (I did that today)!



Also you can see my incredibly crappy seaming at the bottom, I ran out of yarn and had to use another piece. I'm thinking I'm going to pick it out and reseam that bit. Although, the seam is visible, which is annoying. I just didn't want to do too far in on the rows (I think it looks like that because I mattress stitched like the VERY end of the row) because I didn't want there to be a big bulky seam. Meh, it's on the back.

I'm hoping to finish the foot tonight *Crosses fingers*

I also finished one Fuzzy foot. I have tomorrow between 1 and 5 and Friday between 1 and 5 to finish it (The only time I'll be apart from Mason before Monday, when I plan on felting them). It turned out pretty cute (despite its HUGENESS). I did the striping based on the Fibonacci sequence. I think I can get it done in the time I've allotted myself. They're chunky, so they don't take too long at all to knit.




I don't think I'm going to get to making Christmas ornaments, but that's okay, they'll get something baked instead.


I'm off to knit a sock foot.
