what would starbuck knit?


You guys, this pattern is HARD.

Viper Pilots by Glenna C, in Dream in Color Starry.

I usually make one or two knitted Christmas presents a year and no more. This year I didn't even manage that. These socks were going to be my mom's Christmas present, but I started them about two weeks before Christmas. When am I going to learn that I can't finish a sock in a week?! Especially not when they have such heavy, TINY cabling. Those ribbed swirls on the sides are intense!

But check out those Vipers. Love it. I'll finish them someday. Meanwhile I got my mom and Cute Overload calendar instead.

In addition to my RSC membership, waiting for me under the Christmas tree was...

a bag of yarn! Yay! Misti Alpaca sock yarn. Punta Yarns Mericash. Rowan Alpaca Cotton. Love! I got some yarn store gift cards too. I'm too young to be worrying about SABLE, right? Right??

Wash had a good holiday too. Here he is with his favorite Christmas present...a handmade catnip toy from my Grandma.

Those socks are beautiful- they look like they're worth all of the time and aggravation! It sucks that handknit socks are so time consuming, but I guess that's part of the charm. So much goes into them that you can't help but feel all of the love!
