Knitting Done

Yep, the knitting part of the stockings is complete! I had a great and productive day today---I finished the foot of the stocking, including the toe. I then took a break from that and wove the ends in on Christine's stocking. Later, I got back to Mitch's, and got the heels finished before 10 p.m. As much as I would have liked to have finished up more of it, it will have to wait till tomorrow.

I think I will go ahead and get Christine's blocked first, then weave ends on Mitch's. Then hers can be blocked and as soon as Christine's is dry, I can get it stitched up. I figure it is best to get them on a staggered schedule so I can make progress on one while the other sits. I hope to get them in the mail on Tuesday, will see how it goes!

I was busy today, made fudge and karamel korn. Plus the knitting. It was a good day!

The Stocking Progresses

That is about the gist of it all. I am past Santa's face now, so I can stand to knit longer. It drives me nuts to have too many balls and holders of yarn attached at one time, and they get tangled so quickly, too. I am down to three now--two skeins of red and one of angora. It isn't nearly as bad to deal with. Needless to say, the knitting goes faster too, with not having the change colors as much.

It is definitely time to make hay while the sun shines. I am thankful for air conditioning, as it would be the pits trying to knit this otherwise. As it is, the stocking is getting big enough to create a lot of heat--haha.

Well, I have no other news, so will go....and will hope to have more to report next time!
