Christmas Knitting is FINALLY Finished!

My SILs socks fit and were finished the day before they arrived for their visit! I have now officially started making a pair of socks for myself. They're just stockinette, but I'm using CTH mill ends in black/grey/plum colors. I think I'm going to love them! It is so soft.

I'm also getting ready to start felted clogs for my husband. He was so patient while I finished them up for his father and brother! I'm hoping to have them ready by the weekend. (I guess they're technically still Christmas knitting, but I feel better fooling myself.) I'm trying to decide what my next project will be. I'm planning on making something for myself. Here are a few in the running....

1. Tangled Yoke Cardigan - Eunny Jang
2. Indigo Ripple Skirt - Kat Coyle
3. Ariann - Chicknits
4. Shedir - Jenna Wilson (I've done this one before, but would love to make another.)

I have the yarn for all these (important when one is on a yarn diet!) If you want to help decide my first project for myself this year, offer up a vote! I'm feeling a bit indecisive! I also plan on knitting a lot of socks for myself. After the first pair is done I'm planning a pair of Cookie A. socks!

I've got the yarn for the tangled yoke as well, just haven't gotten around to swatching for it! I have several cookie socks on the needles and I love them all!

Woo Hoo!

Congrats on getting it all done!

I vote on the skirt....It's the one you seem to be the most excited about when we've discussed personal projects. Second in line would be the Tangled Yoke.

You know I recently finished Ariann, so I love mine. I don't think you could go wrong with knitting Tangled Yoke or the skirt. They're all great projects!

Good for you for knitting yourself a pair of socks. Did you see Cookie's newest sock design, Mingus? I love it.

With all the little knitting you've done, I'd say go for a sweater.

Hayden's vest looks great! I hope he wants to wear it often.

Why pick one? I have projects in different rooms of the house so I have one when I need it. One is easy for in front of the TV, one is harder when the kids are watching something...one is boring, but a present for someone, ect.
