What WAS I thinking??

Christmas knitting in full swing.  I don't have a spreadsheet as does the Yarn Harlot.  I have a list of items in my head and periodically I review what remains to be knit and I panic a bit.  I've been wrapping the hand knit items as I finish them.

I intended to take photos of the finished objects before wrapping.  However, I remembered this AFTER wrapping a retro mohair scarf and beret. Here's the box.

Use your imagination to see the multidirectional diagonal scarf knit out of LaGran mohair in three colors including Spanish Olive!  And a mohair tam/beret to match.

I remembered to take photo of the Francie socks before wrapping them!  I fell in love with the sole-arch shaping.
I started these socks in September, then I fell ill and was hospitalized for 8 days in October.  Lots of down time, but no energy or mental fortitude to work on knitting that required following a pattern.
Although it is now December, apparently my brain fog continues.  The first sock I knit on size 2.25mm needles--my go-to size for all socks.  For some unknown reason, I made the second sock on size 2.5 mm needles.  The socks are now two different sizes. 
What WAS I thinking? 

Brain Fog!
