For quite a while now, I've been following a weekly post by Ginny. It is called a Yarn Along. You sign on weekly, and share what you are reading and what you are knitting or crocheting. You take a photo and then you write what you are doing...so here goes....
Today, for the first time, I'm going to join along in the fun.
My knitting here is my next Christmas Stocking. Last year we saw some really neat Christmas stockings, and although everyone in my house has a stocking, lovingly made for them by our friend, Myrtle Tryon, for their first Christmas in the family, my family is growing up and some are going off on their own. And these stocking were really neat. And we've been to a couple of fiber fests, and some thick and thin, or just regular weight yarn, hand dyed, is just the thing to make a unique stocking. It's a great take along project. And you get to knit a long time before you have to figure out the whole heel thing! Last year I made one for my son's girlfriend, and a new one for him. I felted hers. That was the original intent. We made them big for that reason... but it is hard to do it sometimes. I told him I would felt his, too. But so far I haven't. My #2 son likes the Longhorns, which was how we started on the whole orange theme here. But I really like this one myself. Andrea is actually next in line, but she has told me several times that she doesn't need a stocking, because she already has one. Yep, she does. And she always will here. Just giving options.
