Christmas Vacation
Drive up to MaineI finished these socks on Christmas Eve. The picture is taken at Federal Jacks in Kennebunkport, Maine. I gave them to our waitress. She may still be in shock.
Shortie Socks
40 stitches, size 4 d.p.'s, Encore Worsted
Christmas Snowpeople
Christmas Day at my niece Amy's house

This is the beginning of "That Little Scarf". I used the "Walking on the Wild Tide" yarn that came in the RSC April kit. This yarn is not showing the pattern very well. The pattern is a 12 row lace pattern that involves purl 3 tbl. Pattern can not be seen very well with the intense variation of color in this yarn. Will be ripped out and the "Grasshopper" yarn will return to the stash box, maybe later.
I used leftover Kramer, Summit Hill for these "Mini Waffle Socks". The link for these seems to have been taken off the internet. It was a very easy 2 row pattern.
Yarn: Kramer, Summit Hill 100% Merino Superwash Wool
I have started "That Little Scarf" over. I looked through the stash box while putting away the "Grasshopper" yarn and found this Elsebeth Lavold - "Silky Wool" color 37
This yarn is showing stitch definition much better
