I am perfectly delighted with the little baby socks in the top picture! Each sock took one short evening of knitting and used approximately 12 grams of Cascade Fixation (cotton/lycra) yarn. My only disappointment is that I had hoped to use the rest of that yarn up! I still have enough for one more pair of baby socks.
The wristband pictured below the socks took 10 grams of fingering weight cashmere. It's for me. Also a very quick knit to use up some little bits. The pattern is in the Fall 2008 Knit.1 magazine.

Here are a couple of finished objects from February and early March....
The first item is a neckwarmer made of a full ball of Artful Yarns Reality. The yarn feels yummy and I love the colors. I'm not sure where it will find a home, but it was a quick and satisfying knit and since I recently discovered that I have about 80 single balls of yarn, I need to crank out a project like this every month or so to cut down on my yarn stash.
Secondly, I gave Hailey this wristband for her birthday. You may not be able to see the pocket, but I designed it to be large enough to fit a gift card or library card inside. For her birthday, it indeed contained some coupons--for time out together, time sewing together, a special dessert, Bi-Rite ice cream with her papa, etc. Alas, I still have more of this yarn.
