Happy Friday! We had a very nice Thanksgiving and I hope yours was the same. A little knitting time after dinner and I was able to finish a Christmas stocking for the Little Miss.
First Christmas Stocking
Pattern :: my own
Yarns :: Lion Brand Heartland, redwood and joshua tree
Yarn Bee Haute Fur, snowflake
Needle :: US 8 (5.0 mm)
I looked through a few patterns on Ravelry and decided to just do my own thing. Little Miss loves textures so I knit a cuff of furry white. The leg and foot are stockinette, with a garter stitch heel and toe. I’d never done a garter short-row heel before and now I want to try it on regular socks.
The Heartland yarn is so, so, so soft and there’s a nice selection of colors. I can see me using this yarn again.
Next up is a small gnome/elf hat from the same red and green yarns. Grandbaby knitting is the best! 🙂
Enjoy your weekend!
