Last-minute Knitting Frenzy!!

Close to finishing another pair of socks.  Need to send these to Las Cruces, NM, hopefully before Christmas.  I only had to make two sets.  Oh why, oh why did I wait so long???

Magic Loop Socks

Currently working on a pair of socks using a Magic Loop pattern which I took a class for, to learn how.  Took the class a while back, maybe a couple of years ago?  Luckily, following the written instructions has worked out; there's always a little bit of panic when your teacher is not there to guide you through the confusing parts.  These are almost done and I'm ready to start another pair; Christmas gifts for my nieces.

Crochet Slippers

Found a really cute pair of crochet slippers pattern at  Originally, I had downloaded a sewn ballet-type slipper pattern and promised to make slippers for sis, sis-in-law, nieces; however, bad news...disastrous results!  Important to honor promises made so went in search of a slipper that they all might like for in the meantime until I work out the kinks of the sewn slipper.  Tah dah!  mamachee's Oma Slippers as listed in  I just received the pattern and will get out my yarn and hook to start right away.  I think this will be a winner.  Will post results when done with first pair.
