Final Finish of 2014~

Thanks to the Engineering Wife,
who so kindly took out my 
messed up stitches,
I finished up my 
second pair of adult socks!!

They were my final finish in 2014..
of anything ;)

But I have been wearing them a lot
and they are holding up well.
Much of 2015 has been BeLoW zero...yep, for real.

The Pilot Man offered to buy me new socks,
because I am a wee bit slow
with the knitting needles.
But, I think he misses the point.

These are a bit of an experiment,
but I love having socks that fit my funny feet..
and keep them warm!

Supersocke 100
100 Gram/ 420 Meter
Sportive-Color Fingering Wt.
75% Wool, 25% Polyamid 
Long-tail cast on 64 stitches
6.25" Cuff
*Creative Add-ons*
9 straight knit rows between cuff and heel
One heel ribbed, one not (fits better)
8" heel to begin of toe

Guess it is time to take the tree down now.....

2014, A Lovely Year of Finishes~

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!

It helped to keep me focused and finishing projects!

These were Lovely Year of Finishes that I posted about:

1) Intention  January
2) Lens Bag  February
3)  Explore  March
4)  Presence   April
6)  Sew-Together Bag  June
7) Fireweed Travel Bag  August
8)  Grand Canyon Suite  October

They may not have been huge, but they were done!
I did set my goal,  then finished this stocking in November.
Just didn't work to post
 I was lucky enough to deliver it to a
special little guy.
I think it was worth being away from the computer 
to be able to see the family!

I didn't even attempt a goal in September after looking at
our trusty calendar.

And there was also one failure :(
in July, but I ended up finishing other projects,
so I can live with that!

It has been a filled year for us all.

Thank you,
Thank you
