Christmas Knitting












PHEW! Christmas is done! And that means the end (for now) of all the Christmas knitting. I must say, overall I was pretty successful with the Christmas knitting. The only thing I feel down on was a pair of socks (poor Ash had one gifted to him along with an IOU), but everything else was finished, had ends sewn in, and was even blocked! I know. I surprised even myself.
