on the needles

All the ribbing is finished!!! and so are socks for kids for Christmas!!!!  I started the green and purple socks in August on a road trip and have only worked on them in the car until the last 2 inches.
Recent yarn purchases and the carrot in front of my nose to finish Christmas socks.

 To celebrate I started this sweater for me. It is just knitting in the round so goes rather quickly.  The pattern is Breakwater  I'm using Malabrigo sock yarn on size 7 needles.

 I have spent way too much time watching movies on weekends while the guys are off hunting.  I placed a marker at the toe and one at the heel so I didn't have to count the stitches between increases in the sole and decreases on the upper part.  I had it down to knitting one slipper in less than the time it took to watch a movie and I was knitting on size 11 (8mm) needles.  Next to felt them.

 New project for knitting in the car.  More reading mitts in sock yarn, I love this yarn I will definatly be buying more and there were so many colors to choose from so why choose.

This is a nice place to sit! Linking to Judy's OTN  --Ann--
