December roundup

This is my monthly roundup of projects and stuff. (Not doing a yearly roundup, though. Let's just say that I knit a lot. And finished a lot. And bought a lot.)

Five projects were finished:

1. A pair of monkey socks, 'cause everyone needs to knit this pattern at least once.
2. An EZ's BSJ. Ditto the above reason. (The next challenge for CIC is for sweaters and vests in sizes 2 and 4 which is convenient since this measures at a size 2. Ha! I'm ahead in a challenge.)
3-4. Two Christmas projects (which were finished on time and with minimum stress, thank you very much.) They were a cabled purse for DD#1, and 3 dishcloths for my dad that match his kitchen.
5. Five felted potholders that match my kitchen. They haven't been used yet, but I'm admiring the stack of them. (The stack is in my kitchen, so at least they're getting closer to the stove.)

The only real UFO is the teal cardigan which was ignored (but will be one of January's projects).

There are two WIP's: another pair of Horcrux socks and another BSJ, but that's a story for another day.

Happy New Year!
