Hurrah! DH's stocking is done. Well except for the blocking, which might have to wait until after Christmas. This is a suprise and I don't really have anywhere to lay it out and block it where DH won't see it. Except in my shower maybe?
Anyway, I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool and Cascade 220. Just like Henry's stocking, I cast on 64 sts with US 7 needles. The cuff is seed stitch. It's hard to see, but there is patterning on the leg (which I got from the Christmas Stockings book). A band of snowflakes and a band of dots. Once again my duplicate stitch looks crummy, but oh well. At least it's consistently crummy on both stockings. Heh.
Hi, I saw you on the knitted gift blog and wondered what a slipper sock is? Sounds fast and ... well, fast. Lovely Christmas stocking.
Love how it turned out, I used the same pattern for one this year as well and loved it. Your variations are nice!Post a Comment
