Quick and Easy Christmas Gift

I knitted these up for my Secret Santa gift. It is super fast and easy!

Added buttons where the volume control is 

 Untangled By Samiha Qureshi


Left-over bit of sock-yarn...colorful!

US 2 1\2 DPN

New set of Earbuds

Two very small Mother of Pearl buttons. 

I cast on four stitches and surrounded the wire in the knitting with each round.   

Really I started at the plug end and made increases around the "Y" section to divide.

My Cup of Tea socks by Robin Lynn

My Cup of Tea Socks by Robin Lynn

My Cup of Tea socks are worked top down on dpn’s. Inspiration for these socks came from the “crocuses” pattern (p. 60) The Stitch Collection Book 5/Specialty Stitches by Debbie O’Neill.

The design is pretty but practical, following a basic sock pattern but with a 24-stitch (12 row repeat) motif added down the front.

It is written with a 64-stitch cast-on, but can be easily modified for fit using your favorite basic sock pattern formula. The motif ends before the toe to make the socks comfortably worn inside shoes.

The sample socks were knit up with undyed panda sock yarn from WC Mercantile that I crock-pot dyed using an assortment of tea bags, resulting in both lovely and fragrant yarn ~ aromatherapy knitting ~ just my cup of tea!
