Tis the season to give woollies

embossed leaves socks

We had Christmas last weekend*, so I can finally post things that have been keeping me occupied of late.

These socks were made for my m-i-l, Lorraine, because she loves to go walking and could use the combo of something warm but pretty.

Yarn is another one from Easy Knits, and the pattern is Embossed leaves from Interweave. I think the pattern would work better with a solid colour, but they're still pretty.

I'm floundering a little at the moment. My project list is huge, but I'm finding it hard to commit to anything other than hats and scarves. I think my subconscious is worried that I might start a big project, only to have it abandoned when the sprog arrives. This and a little self-preservation too - I'm having some wrist problems, and will be wearing a splint for at least the next 4 months.

What to do?

*I'm 38 weeks at Christmas, and there was no way I was going to risk the bub being born at the side of the M1.

Great socks - I'm finally surrendering and giving them a go this Christmas...
