A few things to make

So I started my Christmas gifts a week before Thanksgiving..

1. 2 pairs of socks for my aunt to be able to wear her flip-flop in the winter
2. A lace scarf for my mom's boss
3. 4 hand bound books for the girls down the street
4. A sock bag and spinning apron for knit-night gift

Well I've gotten one sock done, the bag & apron, the scarf was started then frogged and i have one book made but it does not count I made it in Sept.
I have started something else also. A very good friend, okay he's family or might as well be, will be starting his chemo this week and I have told him I will make him hats. I have bought I love this cotton in brown & caron simply soft shadows in a cream brown to make the "turn a square" hat from Brooklyntweed.

Here are the pics of THE sock it's a monkey with a toe!! Also the hat yarn and the yarn for the frogged lace scarf. :)

Love the Monkey with a toe! You should let us in on your method! Also, that Shi Bui yarn looks absolutely delish!
