The Christmas Knit

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  We were lucky to drive home and see family.  Unfortunately though, a snow storm hit Christmas day on our drive home.  A 4 hour and 45 minute drive turned into a 6 hour and 45 minute drive.   We had to drive about 50 mph across SD on icy roads.  When we arrived at my mother-in-law's house I felt so relieved to get out of our car and collapse on a couch.  
Our first stop, Brad's parent's house for his extended family's Christmas get together.  We enjoyed spending time with cousins while playing games like Catch Phrase and Pit and filling ourselves with wonderful holiday food!
Later in the evening, we stopped at my parent's home for our family Christmas.  I received some really fun knitting presents.    The yarn is eco-friendly and hand-dyed which made me even happier when I opened the package.  I love the idea of purchasing organic and eco-friendly yarns, however as a recent college grad I need to find creative ways to fit them into my student loan budget.  Anyway, so the yarn made a wonderful Christmas present, thanks sis!

Some gifts knitted for my family.
A bolero for Anika.  The pattern came from Debbie Bliss's Junior Knits, the pattern is Molly.  Yarn: Rio by yarns.brunswick, color Hemlock, cotton blend.
 
Half of a pair of socks for my very understanding mom.  Checkered pattern with a gusset heel made with Tofutsies sock yarn

And finally, a complete pair of socks for our Uncle Bud.  K2, P2 rib with a gusset heel.  Made with Regia sock yarn.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

You did great with the Christmas knitting, despite a half-finished sock. I ended up stuffing Tom's unfinished socks in a gift bag, which is exactly what I did with the scarf I made for him last Christmas. Sadly, the second sock had to make a trip to Frog Pond, so it's going to be some time before he actually gets to wear them. Have a great New Year!
