FOs: Mysterious Disappearing Dots Scarf, Butin Collar, and socks

It’s been a fairly good run this year at knitting Christmas gifts – I’m mostly done with holiday knitting — only a pair of socks to finish, and a sweater that’s really due at Thanksgiving (need to compute the math for the sleeve caps, knit them, then finish the sweater).

It feels good that I’m not in a rush, or agonizing over what to knit.  I’m backing off previous year’s knitting of major garments (except for the sweater) which makes it easier, and I think I’ll appreciate this most in December.

With that said, here are the most recent FO’s:

The Mysterious Disappearing Dots scarf  (a great Lucy Neatby design):

The Butin Collar – the pattern was a gift from a mystery exchange, yarn and beads my own – I’ll probably make a couple of more.  I shortened it because most of my friends are short or wear higher necklines. Project details here.

and a basic pair of socks – always reliable travel knitting, these will be enjoyed by their Christmas giftee.  Mix-and-match rib sock recipe by Chrissy Gardiner. Project details here.
