These are NHM #3 by Terri Shea from Selbuvotter :: Biography of a Knitting Tradition . I do plan to make further good use of this book with mittens for myself, husband, and younger daughter (the eldest is the proud owner of the first pair I made).
On to more Christmas knitting. That's 8/16 gifts complete (OK, so six of these were very quick crocheted market bags), and three more are halfway done. My goal is to finish the Muppet socks and Dashing by Monday, hopefully with a good bit of progress on the surprise Hiking Socks for my husband in the meantime as well.
