Pattern: Hourglass Eyelet Socks by Cindy Putnam
Yarn: J. Knits Superwash Me Sock in Florida
Notes: You might recognize this pattern from the now defunct online knitting magazine Magknits. The pattern's been moved to Ravelry! These were fun to make, short repeat is easy to memorize and breaks up the tedium. These socks are so comfortable to wear. The stitch pattern is very stretchy. And I love this yarn. I chose it specifically to knit in the winter because it's so bright and cheerful, but when I started knitting with it, I couldn't stop thinking about candy corn!

Pattern: Celtic Moonrise Mittens by Rhiannon Don
Yarn: Cascade 220
Comments: I made these as a gift and they were very well received! They came together quickly and were fun. I was a little put off by the flap thumb (I prefer a gusset), but these fit really well.

Pattern: Saartje's Bootees (look in the sidebar)
Yarn: Woolen Rabbit sock yarn in Leaf Peeper
FO Entry: If you're interested....
Quick Notes: These booties were super fast, and they're super cute! Perfect last minute gift. Though be advised, sock yarn and US2 needles make a TINY bootie. I'm pretty sure the baby's only going to wear them once, but at least her parents can admire them!
Pattern: Cassidy by Bonne Marie Burns for ChicKnits
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Treasure
FO Entry: Right here!
Quick Notes: Unfortunately, I made this sweater a size large on purpose, and then lost some weight, so it doesn't fit at all. It's so gorgeous though, and was so much fun, I'm sure I'll make another!
Pattern: Coupling by Deb Barnhill
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage
FO Entry: Check it out!
Quick Notes: I did my own heel and toes, but I think that was the only modification I made. The stitch pattern was fun, and I love how it looks stretched on my foot. The yarn was a total dream to knit. It's soft and squishy, and also seems like it'll wear really well. Also, and perhaps most importantly, the yarn was completely, absolutely solid! SO hard to find in a decent yarn!

Pattern: Children's Neck Down Bolero, by Knitting Pure and Simple
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, in Visual Purple
FO Entry: Right here!
Quick Notes: A nice, straightforward pattern. I was looking for something simple and small, and this definitely fit the bill. I don't have a kid to give it to, but whatever! The yarn is dreamy (I slay myself!), and the yardage is incredible. I hardly used the second skein at all, and I'm plotting whether to do some sort of matching hat thing for the bolero, or some snazzy mittens for myself.
