My first feature for the day is the (FO) Wooly Nest Ornament, a kit by Marie Mayhew. I met her last month at the shop during a trunk show of her projects. I fell in love with this one. It comes as a kit. I'd never heard of this tradition in Germany (maybe it's from a particular region), but it's very sweet and I'll keep mine out all year! I needle-felted the eggs while watching The Bourne Supremacy--bad idea--I caught my thumb and index finger too many times! The yarn is alpaca and very soft. Marie also designed the snowmen that I have yet to finish. They are the ghostly figures in yesterday's post.
My second feature is the (UFO) pair of Kaffee Fasset socks I began whilst visiting colleges with Ben over the summer. The other sock is an undone bonus--bamboo socks. Only one of these so far. I love socks only when they're done quickly. I dislike knitting them on toothpicks, but I was attractedmesmerizedandbewitched by the colors (as usual) and succumbed to them. (Sigh...)
