Check these out, it took me exactly one week to whip these up. They were knit using Trekking XXL in color #82. I wish they had more of this at the LYS as I love the olive, eggplant, natural stripes. These are a Christmas gift. I will leave their name out as I am not sure whether or not they lurk about my blog. I am taking a small respite from Christmas knitting to work on my Ribbi Cardi, My So Called Scarf, and maybe even a pair of socks. I NEED to knit for ME for a while.
