Knitting, More Knitting, and BATS!

 I've been knitting leftover socks.  When you have small feet like me, there are tons of leftovers.  I've wanted to work on my colorwork, so I picked out the Crystal Socks pattern from knitty, dug up my bag of leftovers, and got started.  Here's the sock so far.  Notice the little yarn balls below?  That's a set of stitch markers I unwrapped from a yarn ball full of little packages, courtesy of my partner in a ravelry swap.  The green thing is a container you can squeeze together and use to store the markers.

I also finished another shawl.  For some reason, I was scared of shawls, and then, I wasn't.  Now, I can't stop cranking them out.  This is Birch Dreaming Deep by Janel Laidman, knit in Dream in Color Starry.  I wish you could see the sparkles.  This yarn is seriously pretty.

The whole shawl:


Christmas Bats, with sprinkles.  They are a tradition at our house, and they were very yummy.
