Christmas stash has begun

I finished a simple pair of socks that is going into my gift bag.

Very simple toe-up pattern that I winged. These are made from Berroco Sox which is a washable wool so these are a good choice for gifting.

Last night just before I finished the socks I ran across this

and I just couldn't help myself. I bought the pattern.

I've already got some yarn that I bought for a great price from Smileys that has just been waiting for a project. I considered Anhinga

but ultimately decided that this is more of a cardigan and it will get more use than a sweater, though I'd still like to make the sweater (I'll just have to save up before I can buy another sweater quantity of yarn).

I'm working on the gauge swatch today for the Dramatic Lace Top Down Wrap Cardi (and I need to think of a shorter name).

This is gorgeous. I've been coveting a gorgeous gray wrap on etsy but of course now I can't find it. It had a kilt pin closure and was so pretty.
