Almost Finished Objects

I'm almost finished with a pair of socks, all they need is closing the toe.
I'm almost finished with my first mitten, just weaving in about 8 strings. And 1/2 way through with the 2nd mitten. And yes, the thumb was not that hard to pick up and knit.
Maybe I will get them all finished by Knit Night on Tuesday.

I started a lace scarf with the bright yellow lace weight yarn that Sue brought to Knit Night last time.
It's pretty stiff, but it softens up a lot when washed.
Marianne from Knit Night gifted me with the coveted Make My Day Award, so I also want to thank the people who make my day. All my Knit Night friends: Of course Sue, who forced me to learn to knit and taught me so patiently, who makes me laugh, and who took a kitten off my hands. And Marianne, a friend rediscovered from our childhoods, and the fastest knitter ever. Emma, one of the first loyal knitters in the group, Amy and Joyce, the amazing bag knitters, Tony & Eric, with the lovely flowers and gorgeous knitting, hilarious Ann, and also Eva, Cindy and Esther, who don't have blogs, but need them.
The others who make my all my days: My little sister, My best friends Ann, Theresa & Barbara, my big sister, and my wonderful earth mother friend, Linda, with a brand new blog.

I'll leave you with a picture to warm any librarian grandmother's heart: Mr T reading with his little cousin, Miss H.
