A pair of baby-sized "moc-a-sock" booties from Bekah.Knits' pattern. These are for my cousin and her husband who just had a baby boy in New Zealand and I finished them a couple of days ago.
Two more cup cozies. The blue is for a friend who dropped not-so-subtle hints that she would like one. The cream was a test, I used double strand to make the cozy extra thick and I think it works. Both are nice and warm to hold while sipping your coffee or tea. I'm still contemplating keeping the cream one for myself since I don't have a cozy yet, but I may offer it up for a giveaway instead...
A cardigan from Panda's #204, 11 Handknits for Kids pattern book for Isabella knitted in Panda 8ply. I have to admit I only made about 90% which was ages ago, then Mum finished it off and sewed it up since she had run out of knitting projects.
For Mum's birthday in a couple of weeks, even though it's getting the wrong time of year to wear it, I've made her a shadowbox from Bendigo's Cotton 5 ply. According to Alison it is..
Big garter stitch thingy.
Lots of garter stitch.
And a big button
Wear it buttoned, or draped and unbuttoned
No photo, yes it's finished but it looks like a big knitted square which isn't very exciting and hard to photograph. Just look at Alison's and imagine it in a yummy charcoal.
There's also a pair of socks on the needles that are my "swimming lesson" socks. Easy to transport and no remembering of the pattern, just pickup and knit a few rows while avoiding being splashed by flailing legs and arms in the water.
