Changing Gears

Hi there! It has been Project Monogamy Week around here.

I finished that big cream-colored thing. It’s waiting for a bath and a photo shoot. Please keep your fingers crossed for nice weather over the weekend, since that will be my first opportunity for modeled photos.

I probably should have gone back to my gumdrops socks when I finished sweater-knitting. But I didn’t. I haven’t taken one stitch on that project since last week, so no new picture. Instead, I jumped in with both feet on a Christmas project:

Christmas stockings! I have fabric for quilted stockings in the basement. I have perused knitted stocking patterns in the past. But my Hurricane Knitter friend Melissa faved (or queued ... I can't remember) the above pattern on Ravelry and I liked it. So I got yarn and cast on two days ago. Yes, I started Monday morning and can probably finish today. Nothing wrong with that, and YAY for bulky yarn!

I definitely have lots of “thoughts” on this project, but I’ll hold them until the FO post. Oh, and expect to see a matching stocking in green with my name on it.

After a decade of cohabitation, Hubster and I will finally have stockings hung by the chimney with care in 2009!

I embroidered stockings for everyone in our family. Now, as the girls move out and take their stockings to their new homes, there's a space. I was thinking of filling it with knitted stockings. I like the red and white one.

The ability to see what other people have queued in your friends activity tab is very dangerous. That stocking is super cute!

Jen said...

Wow, that's some quick knitting!

Looking good! You two will be so cute with your coordinated knit stockings.

I'm lucky--my mother just makes us fabric stockings--lol! Every new family member (by birth or marriage) gets one!

But that one is going to be nice and stretch--the better to hold loot! Hee!

My favorite color...too bad Chris's name is on it ;)

Isn't it a great pattern? After extensive research, that one's by far my favorite. Glad to inspire!
