Finally! The knitting!

Well, at least some if it...

I finished two Christmas stockings, and started the third. I am really enjoying this project, and if I wanted to , could continue on - there was some interest from some friends when they saw them. The thing is, once I finish this last one, I'm pretty sure I'll be done with this. It's fun, and I love how they are turning out, but three is enough right now.

My son has already claimed the one on the left, and the one at the bottom is for me (I'm using angels, bows and others somewhat feminine motifs on it), so that means my husband gets the one on the right. He's fine with that.

While this project has used up some of my Briggs and Little, I still have a ton of it left. Maybe I should make some for others...

I love them. The best heirlooms imaginable too! FIfty years from now they'll still be in use, treasured and still looking amazing.

I love your knit stockings. Sometimes I wish I had decided on knit ones for the whole family instead of cross-stitched ones. The cross-stitch are expensive, way more time consuming; with knit ones you can more easily put your own stamp on the design. Good for you.
