knitted gifts for me

I would be remiss if I failed to mention here the wonderful knitted gifts I received this holiday season! They came as a total surprise, though I've been knitting long enough (and giving away knitted things long enough) that it shouldn't have been such a shocker, really.

Winter has finally arrived here in Madison, Wisconsin. A little later than usual, but it's definitely here. This was the view from our (still new!) basement window around noon today:

And it's getting colder, so the squishy, warm fingerless mitts my friend C sent me from her winter home in Arizona have been a well-used accessory inside the house, where my hands are perpetually cold. Note the charming buttons on the side:

And then yesterday, these socks arrived in the mail from my mom:

They are my Christmas present, finished a little after Christmas, but the timing couldn't have been more perfect, considering the cold temps and today's snowstorm. They fit like a glove. She used Classic Elite Alpaca Sox and I don't believe my feet have ever been treated to anything so soft and warm and light. Totally worth the effort to hand wash!
