So, I never even got around to posting my Christmas knitting. I think it is a bit late to do so now, but here are some more recent finished projects.
A not-very-well-composed picture of my Love in Idleness socks:
Matter-Eater Lad gave me this yarn for Christmas. The yarn is Socks that Rock Mid-weight, and the pattern is garter rib from Sensational Knitted Socks ("SKS"). SKS has some really great tips--get a load of the top of the gusset:
I also finished the Ruby Slippers Jaywalker socks after the nice woman at Blue Moon Fiber Arts sent me these:
mini-skeins. That's the Fire on the Mountain next to them for scale. I only used a teeny-tiny bit of one of the minis, which shows you just how bad my karma was two Mondays ago.
I like how this yarn works with the Jaywalker pattern:

Ooooh, and I also knit this:
I really love how it came out.
