last minute stocking stuffer #2

1945 British Ladies' Home Companion stocking. \

I have now, in the past 3 years, done this stocking 10 times for 4 different families.

Does anyone else have, or have done this stocking?

Finished Hat and Mittens

I finished a simple stockinette stitch hat and mittens. Both were done with 2 needles and required a seam. I did learn the mattress stitch. I got better at this stitch as I went along.

Okay, I go both ways now

I've never liked the idea of being in the closet, so I'm coming right out and admitting it, I've learned to crochet.

I, said the sheep...

I, said the sheep with curly horn,
I gave him my wool for a blanket warm.
He wore my coat on Christmas morn.
I, said the sheep with curly horn.

- from "The Friendly Beasts" a French carol.

Knitting diet

Knitter's elbow! What pain in the butt. This developed a couple of weeks ago as I was trying to finish a couple of projects before the end of the year.

Holden Shawlette

I blocked this shawlette yesterday. I'm so embarrassed that it's not one of Mario's patterns. Sorry Mario - you know I'm totally dedicated to your patterns!
