Elizabeth, Watch Your Mailbox

Because Grandma's socks will be shipping out on Wednesday. And there may be a little something for you in the package too...

Pattern: Basic Sock Recipe by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee [Ravelry Link]
Recipient: Grandmama D.
Yarn: Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Sock in Discipline
Needles: US 1 1/2, 2.5mm
Mods: None, just...don't look to closely at the cuffs (I made a little oops..)

Next, Finished Christmas Gifts:
Pattern: Celtic Cable Neckwarmer by Lindsay Henricks [Ravelry Link]
Recipient: Grandma B.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarns Merino Worsted in Emerald
Needles: US 8, 5.0mm
Mods: None. I'm not sure how I feel about this project. It is wrapped and ready for Grandma B., but the buttons didn't turn out like I wanted, so I'm not sure how she will feel about it. Pictures aren't the best...sorry

Pattern: Liesel by Mary Joy Gumayagay [Ravelry Link]
Recipient: Michelle
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk Aran (2 skeins) in Purple
Needles: US 8, 5.0mm
Mods: I only did one repeat of the pattern because I didn't have that much yarn. After blocking, it is probably around five feet long. The picture doesn't really show the pattern, but if you follow the pattern link, you can see more accurately what the scarf looks like in real life.

Not much else to say now. Work and School have been insane busy recently, and it probably won't ease up until I graduate. I even have most of Christmas Break dedicated to thesis work. At least I'll stay busy?
