Stitch by stitch

I haven't really been loving it, but stitch by stitch, I've been making progress on my Christmas knitting.

One sock is (hopefully) complete for Miss Pee.
I haven't kitchenered the toe yet, because I'm waiting on confirmation of her foot length from my sister-in-law - I may have to rip back and lengthen - that girl grows like a weed.
This is using the Tabby Cat she dyed this summer to match her cat, Buddy. They are just plain vanillas at the moment, but I've got something special planned for them.

I've also cast on for my co-workers much deserved socks
I'm using Barn Cat, and Mom's gorgeous Wandering Rose pattern. I just started tonight, and it was hard to put down. It's one of those patterns, you want to do "just another row" to see the pattern develop.

And, to break up all that fine knitting - I'm making a Monster....The Brainmonster hat - this one is for Dave's eight-year-old cousin.

I expect to have at least one of these done by the weekend. Any bets on which it will be?

I love that hat! I am hoping it gets done first so I can see it finished.
Tonight I began the one and only holiday gift I am knitting this year and I am wondering if I will actually get it done. I don't seem to have the spirit this year. It may be the 75 degree weather out or it may just be me.

Looks like you are making great progress on your gifts!

I would bet on the hat, it's just so cute!

You'll probably whip that hat up pretty quickly. :)

Looks like a good match for Buddy! Is that as a compliment to the cat? Or to complement the cat? Or perhaps just so that the cat hair won't show?

Hey that's a great idea! Maybe I should start knitting black socks!

I'm not sure about betting, but I'd guess it's either those gorgeous wandering rose socks or the monster hat (which I love) :)

I'd say it'll be the tabby socks; you're already halfway there if she hasn't sprouted again. Looking forward to seeing what embellishment you use.
