I Finished up gifts for the niece's today. Little zippered pouches with something special for each girl ... a nail kit for the oldest, who I noticed at Thanksgiving has the longest prettiest nails I've seen in a long time! Another for hair things. And for the youngest, colored pencils, markers and crayons. I sure hope they like their new personal pouches!

My First pair of Socks. I think I did pretty well these are for my oldest daughter who asked for a pair last Christmas and I finally got the nerve up to try out a pattern And something special for a special Client. A "Luxe Neck Warmer" from this book . I made lots of these last Christmas and just love them because they knit up so quickly.
