Knitting on the Homefront

So, I have to admit that I am jealous of all the knitting goodness T. got to drink on last weekend. I do feel like I got to experience bits of it by proxy and I'm hoping that T. will be kind enough to teach me a couple of the tidbits she picked up.

And P&C are going next year come hell or high water. Just saying.

Here on the homefront I've been knitting here and there. I have these dandy socks to show for my efforts.

I realized the other day that Christmas is fast approaching so I'm going to whip (haha) up a coupld of hats for some men in my life. It seems like men appreciate a nice knitted toque even if they shun all other knitted objects. This year, my headgear of choice is the Turn a Square Hat by Brooklyn Tweed. I picked this pattern partly because it is simple and manly but also cause I have a little knitter's crush on Jared Flood. Sigh.

And here's hoping I can finish these hats and one more pair of socks before Santa comes. December 25 waits for no knitter.

Good luck with the last pair of socks.
There is no way in heck I'll make the 24. I'm so sick of socks right now, which doesn't help.

I just love those socks. Good luck with the Chrissie knitting.

I forgot to say - I'll teach you anything I learned - just don't think I'll do it justice. And I'm funny, but not quite as funny as SPM.

A little crush?
