Finished Objects. Lots and lots of finished objects.

One reason there was a dearth of knitting projects in the run-up to Christmas was that I was trying to finish some other stuff. There were more needle-books to make:

minion hats to finish for the childrens’ stockings:

a quilt top to finish (this has been on the go for literally years. Now just needs batting, backing and quilting. Ok, there’s quite a lot of work there. Calling it ‘finished’ is a stretch.)

and a chair to finish putting together. (There’s going to be a matching one when I get around to turning the fourth leg, another stretcher, making another seven spindles…)

They were all done by Christmas and since then it’s been socks all the way, pretty much. Regia Jet Set for The Husband (I’m always grateful he’s got small feet):

Macha socks from Violet Green for me (I got the yarn for Christmas and was hoping there’d be a Nemain colourway to go with it but no. Any other fans of Guy Gavriel Kay’s Fionavar Tapestry books will know where I’m coming from.)

And a pleasing self-patterning Regia 4-ply – also going to be for me.

On the needles right now – some mittens for a friend. Of which more later.
