I finished Rob’s stocking a little over a week ago. Mostly. I stitched his name on, but didn’t like how it came out, so I ripped it out and stitched it on again. Then I realized when I flattened out the stocking into the correct shape, that I put his name on in the wrong spot. This frustrated me enough to get stubborn about it, so I’m just leaving it there for now while I knit my own stocking. It will get fixed before Christmas.
There’s mine (with a tired Logan sleeping all cuddled with the yarn – she does this a lot). It’s wider than Robs as I didn’t count the cast on either time. I’m not working as quickly on this one as I did with Rob’s, but I still have 9 days before it has to be done. That’s plenty of time to finish. I’m planning to get at least through turning the heel today.
I have to admit, I’m pretty glad I’m not crazily trying to knit up everyone’s gifts right now. No knitted gifts this year! I do still need to finish that spinning, though. Maybe I’m on a shorter time frame than I thought.
