giftie pile

I finished up a couple more single skeins... just a few days past September. First up: socks for a grandmother, out of yarn purchased while on vacation last year. They are rather silky, which I find surprising for superwash merino.

I made another Unoriginal Hat out of Misti Alpaca Bulky, and loved the zippy nature of a 36 row pattern. It was over before it had hardly begun...

I have half a Jaywalker sock to finish, and then will have another completed gift for the boxes that will head east in a few months. I wonder how early I need to ship my gifts to make it across the country?

You've really outdone yourself with great gifts this year. Anyone would be thrilled to receive those. I may have to make a few of the unoriginal hats myself.

New blog reader here, but I had to comment to say that I really love the hat! I'm now off to check out the pattern myself!
Also, you could do USPS priority mail shipping for a little bit of nothing (especially with flat rate boxes) and it would be there in no more than 3 days.
