FO-Kristina socks, and FO: Stinglingar mudd

First these wonderful socks. StickaMera (or KnitMore in Ravelry) has done the pattern "Kristina" - my middle name, Yarn: Gepard CottonWool (from Trassel), and the January knit/KAL entry for StickaMera SockKlubb 2010. If you have not joined - do it NOW! and I love the simplicity with the running cable. Pure joy to knit them. Thanks Ulrika! But - the wonderful times does not stop there! I was the very lucky winner in the SockKlubb draw - and I won these wonderful sockyarn from Garnkorgen! It is amazing. I got to choose the colours myself - and I took something that worked with jeans - since I use my socks all the time now. So the third year of socksclubbing And then - Santa's little helper - my dear friend from the US, send this fantastic shawlpin in silver as a chrismasgift.. Is it just so beautiful... Thank you so much Sue! You are truely the most generous person I know. The silverartist is Brenda Rajkovich, also known as "Silversiren" in Ravelry. Just so fab looking. Million dollars. And yes - I have picked up and old dear UFO from the pile. Started 5 years ago - when we were the little knit-group "Sticklingarna" - Dear Pia made this pattern of leafs to make cuffs/wrist-warmers. With Beads I tell you - and Kid-silk Haze yarn, they actually turned out great. Many many shortrows, and pre-stringing.... I am still very happy it is over. Sorry for this terrible photo... But the light goes so quickly. Still VERY cold here and lots of snow. I definitely feed the birds a bit extra. Otherwise I am planning for Team Sweden Ravelympics (like a knitting olympics ;-) and I am of course entering in more than one event. Knitting on and working. But happy when the fireplace sparks.
