My amazon wishlist

Yay, it's finally finished! And hung by the fake fireplace with care. It's not perfect (especially where I had to do fair isle over the gap between dpns), but I'm pretty happy with it. Yes, I wet blocked it. Twice even.
Yarn: Cascade 220 (I love this yarn)
Needles: US 7
Pattern: I basically just cast on 64 stitches and made a big sock. I did a foldover picot hem at the top. The fair isle patterns were taken from various sources (special thanks to Karen for finding the moose). The name was duplicate stitched on later.
Congratulations on finishing the stocking! I think my littlest won't have one this year - I just don't have time for it. And being the fifth child... and a newborn... is it really necessary? I think not. She won't know the difference and we've got plenty of other stockings to fill. :)
I still use the stocking my mom made for my first Christmas forty five years ago. I've used it every Christmas and would not think of replacing it. It's not knitted like Henry's, but sewn from red felt. I sure Henry will treasure the one you made.Post a Comment
