...And Not A One To Wear.
Well, okay, a slight exaggeration. But only a slight one. Only because there might be sock content, too. And I can't wear those either. Damn you Christmas. You make me give my preshusses away!
Although 'tis true you've already seen a couple of my efforts - the LazyKaty I made for my Mum aka Amethyst and Old Copper, and the PaintedElly aka Malachite and Moss I made for my little sister, but there is more.
I know. I admit to the addiction. Now that I can look back and see my madness.
Preshuss no. 3: Sapphire and Sky. Another Birgit Freyer design, this one is SilkyGarden and was made for one of my oldest friends who was in need of some hugs, so I made her a hug in shawl form for her Christmas.

Preshuss no. 4: Lavender and Quartz. Another LazyKaty, because really, it's ridiculously easy and not very time-consuming to make up this little gem. This one, although I do say otherwise in the title of this post, is currently adorning my neckage area. Hell, it's cold, and there it was, just lying on the table waiting to be put to good use. Yes, yes, it does have another eventual destination, but for the time being I'm quite happy to let it warm my cold shoulders.

Preshuss no.5: The Sock! A Twist For Sis socks, to be precise. Another of my own 'Twist of Citrus' pattern - easy to make and absolutely perfect for fast colour-change or self-striping sock yarn. Mmm-mmm!

But now it's time to concentrate on some preshusses for myself... oh... wait. No, now I'm in the middle of a long scarf for my best buddy, and I'm working on a pair of socks for another friend. But the good news is that I have several boozy and costume sock ideas fermenting in my brain... There should be a good mix of cool and even more cool this year, I'm a-thinking.
