As I was traveling yesterday, I did what I always do and started a new travel sock. I was even able to get a good chunk of the cuff knit. Of course I brought a ton of things to work on while lounging around, but there should always be a travel sock when on the road in my opinion.
I wish everyone a very merry Christmas! May you find lovely yarn and notions under the tree :)

The great thing about having a loom at your disposal is the ability to make quick gifts that would otherwise take a much longer time. Tonight, a Christmas present for my new boss was started and completed within 2 hours. It was just a simple weave of yellow warp and blue weft for the school colors. Gotta love quick projects!
The next project I am working on is the Windschief hat by Stephen West. I have made the hat before, but when a friend asked me to make a chemo cap for her aunt, I knew this pattern coupled with some lovely malabrigo would go wonderfully together. Colorway is nostalgia and it is being made on size 7 needles.

Yes, after months of work and miles of garter stitch, on Thanksgiving day, I completed the pleated jacket. It's huge, but I am in love with it. It's warm and soft, and cuddly. Anyways, here's a picture to prove that it is all finished now!
I also finished another pair of socks for Ms. Phyllis at work, but I finished those quite a while ago now. I have been super swamped at work recently as there were a lot of changes in my department. Long story short, I was promoted and given a lot more responsibility, which meant a lot of extra work to sort through as I moved into my new position. Things have finally calmed down some, we are caught up, and I am getting back to crafting on my lunch break. So anyways, here's the finished pair of socks:
