Julevotter is ready for next Christmas

I did finish these in February!

They were so irresistible to knit.  Like potato chips, I just wanted one more.  

The knit along continues, and it's fun to watch all the other variety of the Christmas Advent calendars coming along.

Hidden socks

We're sending this piece off to the spa.  

It will return to us fully renovated and ready for use as a media cabinet.  We've been using it for years as the landing spot in the entry.  

Baskets of mittens and hats were hidden inside.  The bottom drawer held all our table cloths and napkins.

We found another place for the table linens, but while emptying out that location, I found all my old socks that are desperately in need of heel and/or toe repairs. 

I have no idea how long they've been in there, waiting for attention.  Honestly, I totally forgot them all.

Darning is never as fun as knitting new...
