finito !






yeah! i finished the stockings. i really wanted these finished by dec 1st, but just could not pull that off. i will drop them off at the yarn store on monday for the customer to pick up. i'm sure she's eager to hang them with care ....

all is knitted except for the snowflake motif. the snowflake is from a leisure arts book, white christmas in thread crochet. i actually made all the snowflakes in the book a few years ago, but kinda stalled on starching them. my idea was to make it winter in my living room and hang all the snowflakes from the ceiling.

so, yeah! i'm finished! and i so desperately want to work on something for myself now ... but i seem to have this crazy list of holiday gifts to make. hmmm ....

ps. stockings measure about 21" on the diagonal from the base of the hanging loop to the toe.
