I mentioned that I was knitting a shawl while I had guests from Canada.
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?
3 stockings inspired by a 40 and 20 year old Husband and Wife pair of stockings done by late granny.
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.
I, said the sheep with curly horn,
I gave him my wool for a blanket warm.
He wore my coat on Christmas morn.

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.
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!
This must be ABSOLUTLY stitched on all the side seam of the garments that you will put this evening...
Best wishes for this X-MASS....
So, this is my first yr that I've decided to knit some gifts for people. Being that this is like my 5th yr or so into knitting, you'd probably think I would've done that already, huh?
I just wanted to take the time to say Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all my fellow knitters. I have enjoyed the Men Who Knit site for several years now.
