I've been working on a few projects, and actually got some finished. This is the hat that I posted about a while back. I actually finished it around Thanksgiving, but it took me a while to get around to photographing it.

Now I'm working on a scarf to match it. I'm playing around with the idea of doing a modified Clapotis scarf, though I might decide to scrap it for something else. It doesn't look like much yet.

I finished spinning and plied a skein of yarn on Saturday night as a gift for a friend I was visiting on Sunday. It's merino, tencel, and silk, navajo plied, approximately worsted weight, 104 yards.

And a dice bag I did for a secret Santa a week ago:

And finally, and most impressively, my first pair of adult-sized socks. (Or 2 shots of the first sock, since the second looks the same and I didn't bother taking a picture of it before i gave them away.)

They were for a friend whose birthday is on Christmas, so they were wrapped separately, and the Christmas one was filled with candy.

And now I'm making myself a pair with this yarn, which I bought a year ago:

I'm in love with sock-making. I want to make myself enough socks that I could wear hand-knit only.
