Holiday Knitting Update

First, congratulations to Kasiaiscarly and Scrabblequeen for winning the Blogiversary contests! Some lovely Socks that Rock will be on the way soon! And Marilyn from Ravelry will be getting a runner-up prize too! Thank you everyone for the happy blogiversary comments and for making Rowan feel welcome on the blog too!

The holiday knitting is in full swing here. First, a pair of monkey socks for.......

Chocolate Cherry Monkeys

Yarn: Claudia Handpainted Socks, color chocolate cherries

Mini-Ornament that Rocks

I made two more of these and did my own little version- much quicker! Plus I made these smaller. I did increases and decreases to not waste so much yarn (or time!) and made the I-cord loop.

That is our Christmas tree too. We've had it for a few days and still haven't had a chance to decorate it. We'll get to it this week, but I do love it just as it is too.

Puddles seems to like it too.

Back to holiday knitting! Have a great week!!
