Holiday projects

The deadline is fast approaching and I only have one project completed. The River Rapids Socks for Jo are done.

The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino in Tropical Storm, knit on size 2 dpns. No alterations to the pattern. I'm thrilled with these.

I still have to finish a stocking for my friend's baby.

As you can see, this is croche, I'm not only knitting these days. :) The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease in worsted weight and I'm using a G hook. The colors are Navy, White Frost and Blue Heather. I need to go get anogther skien of the Blue Heather. I think I've made the foot a little too long, obviously I've been making too many socks. :)

The two remaining projects are also socks:

This one is Hedera from Cookie A. The yarn is Koigu. I'm very happy with the way these are turning out. I'll tell you all about the modifications I made later.

And this one is Monkey, also by Cookie A. This yarn is Claudia Hand Paints in Chocolate Cherry. I'm still waffling on this one. It's hard to tell here, I had to lighten the picture a bit to make the colors show up properly, but the colors are creating a sort of wide striping effect. I'm not sure I like the striping with this pattern. I did look at some of the projects on Ravelry and I see a lot of people have used stripy yarn. But..I'm still not sure. What do ya'll think?

All of your projects are wonderful. I hope the recipients love them as much as they should (Oh, and you already know this, but I like the stripes on the Monkey socks).
