Completion

My mom's socks are all packed up and ready to mail. One more pair down and I'm done with my Christmas knitting.

Speaking of completion, I finished lining my Noro hat last evening.

I sure was surprised at how fast this went. I never expected to pick up the stitches one night and be finished with it the next night. I lined it with (to refresh your memory) Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino in navy. It's so soft and cuddly now--and really warm! I love Noro's colors, but it is a really scratchy yarn. This solved the dual problems of not warm enough and the scratchy nature of Noro.

As promised, here's a picture of the row counter Paulette's sister, Cheryl, made me.

Isn't it pretty?
