Christmas Socking with Gingerbread Aliens
I have an unexpected Finished Object to share: my Inge socks.
These were from the Rachel Coopey / Knitting Goddess Little Bit Club, September edition.
Those travelling cables caused me a lot of stress: I couldn't seem to find the best way to divide the stitches across my dpns and kept dropping stitches.
I must have knit the pair twice before I finished.
So when it came to choosing a project for the Christmas Eve Cast On with Little Bobbins Knits, I was determined to keep it simple.
Susan B Anderson's socks (Colorations 3311).
These will be my first-ever vanilla socks - yes, really!
I can't wait to see the Fake Isle patterning start to appear, all by itself!
I have lots more to show you, but my internet connection has been sporadic and I don't want to push my luck.
So I will leave you with a quick taste of our Christmas Gingerbread aliens :)
That's Bartholomew in the middle. He's a bit of a bully.
Who knew raisin eyes could look so creepy?
They are delicious though!
The recipe is from the Hummingbird Bakery, here.
