Christmas Knitting, Almost Finished 

I have almost finished the Christmas knitting that I gave to my husband (incomplete at the time).  The socks would be done, but for the fact that I was a few yards shy of completing them.  Thanks to a Ravelry friend, I will be able to finish the last toe next week.

And my husband’s Chess sweater by Hanne Falkenberg is finally finished.  At first I could not find the left-over contrast color yarn so, I just did the collar all in the main color:

Then, I located the yarn, after an exhaustive search, and looked at the photos online.  It is much better with the single row of contrast at the top of the collar, so I ripped it out, reknit it and sewed it down.  I am happy that I did so.

Hopefully my husband modeling this tomorrow.
