The Ultimate Gift is finished. Over the weekend, I finished the collar and now it is blocking nicely on my guest room bed. One more Christmas Present gets a checkmark on my list.

I have also whipped up (in 3 days) a pair of Gentleman's Fancy Socks from Nancy Bush's Vintage Socks, in Lana Grossa Meilenweit Boot Stretch. The colors are a blue, variegating with red and a purply blue. It turned out rather nice and I hope they fit the size 9US feet I made them for, LOL.

My scarf for the ISE3 is halfway done, and since it has a center seam, that half is blocking alongside the Ultimate Gift. The second half has been started and is up to 2 repeats, with 20 more to go. I should get it finished by the end of the week at the latest, especially since i have finally memorized the 20 row repeat............

So, on to the Gentleman's Cardigan for my Stepdad. It won't need much, just a sleeve to finish and then block, sew together and knit on the front edging and the collar. End of the week as well I hope, since I need to send it to my Mom. No good button shops here in Spain, so she'll buy some and sew them on.

And then.... well, look at the WIP's in the sidebar, you'll get the idea, LOL.
