Handknit stocking


It's done, and will serve the purpose :) I'm pretty happy with it as a decorative thing. If I was to make a real sock out of this worsted yarn I'd have to be much more careful about the holes and loose places!

calendar: Polar bears and penguins have invaded the calendar from the Christmas stickers I bought. Morningtime kitty was taken away and eaten by real cats (how awful)... but a new sticker each day is still exciting. Esme has already started asking me if we are going to the library tomorrow. We went to the library last week on Saturday - and there is a butterfly icon on it to show that. She wants me to pick up and move the butterfly icon down a week and go to the library tomorrow! But I work every day up until Christmas Eve... and a few days off the next week. So, sadly, we will not be going to the library again soon!

wow you are fast. It looks good. I was thinking of making Carter some warm socks with worsted weight yarn. Do you think they would hold up? they only need to be for a season because he will grow out of them before next year. Good luck with your crazy work schedule.

Looks like it was a success!

Good luck with all the working. I will also be pushing through until Christmas, with a few days off the week after.
