More Post Christmas FOs

Two more gifts done. Mom's socks. They are more purplish than the blueish as they look in this picture.
I also finished a neck gaiter for mom out of my handspun i picked up at the 9th annual maritimes spinning retreat. I hope I have enough yarn left for a pair of fingerless mitts but we'll see. It's a 60% bamboo, %40 Merino wool blend.
Mom gave me a skein of alpaca that I knit into these fingerless mitts. (I only had one pair and I wear them over my gloves on cold days. Plus these match one of my neck gaiters and my llama hat). I have enough left to do a headband which I'm working on now. Granny Tan gave me some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino for Christmas in the same colour family so I'm going to make that into a scarf and I'll have a whole set!

My goal is to finish all outstanding Christmas gifts by the end of Jan.... I just might make it!
