Unique tree decorations .....

Some people use garland, others strings of popcorn ..... me I'll settle for a blocked tilly shawl. Blocked a little longer than I would have liked but very nice. Should be out in the mail shortly.
I finished socks for my son in law last night. Size 12 made from Opal croc .... dinosaur added to picture so you can see how big these are lol.
Charlie says, "Well no Diane, I haven't been racing around the house picking on Joey and Oscar. See I'm right here on the circular stairs looking cute."
Finished the orange gold fingerless mitts last night too. Now I'm thinking that the split rib scarf that I thought looked too manly would really go well with these. But we'll see how I feel about that tonight when I pick up my knitting.
This is the top of tilly with the knit I cord. I love it.

Your shawl is beautiful, and I love the socks. I think I have some of that blue crocodile too. What a good mother in law you are to make socks for such a large footed person.
