Socks, Lizards & Secret Santa
Pair numero 12 of the year. 200Sox comes to an end for me with this pair. Knit on 2.5mm Brittany Birch dpns with yarn from Fyberspates gifted to me by Terri my SP8 spoiler. Top down with short row heels. I really like these. :-)
I've started Lizard Ridge from Knitty. I've also ordered a fair whack of the Noro Kureyon yarn I'll need for it too. So I won't be breaking my Knit From Your Stash pledge next year. This first square is colour #52 and is yummy! The pattern is quite simple really but looks impressive.
Finally, we do a Secret Santa thing at work but our own little twist on it is that we all buy gifts from the Pound Shop and only spend £1.00. Every year sees some really fabulous gifts and some that are absolutely spot on for the recipient. I was extremely lucky this year. The person who drew my name out of the hat is the husband of a fibre artist! For my secret santa gift he went stash diving in his wife's stash and gave me some merino for spinning - how lucky am I? Thanks again Brian.
