Here are eight of the cotton mini stockings, a fun little project, each about 5". The red isn't as bright as it appears, it's more like the color of tomato soup. Adding bands of seed stitch, like the green stocking with the white toe and heel, distorted the shape. The red candy cane stripes knitted into the white stocking, bottom right, got misplaced during the stitch decreases.
I still want to add the "2011" somehow, and attach a loop to hang the stockings.
I made two more washcloths in between.

I made two cotton mini Christmas stockings from a pattern posted by Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits. They're knitted flat (the green striped one) and stitched up the back, still have to add the little loop to hang it. Before I stitch the green one, I might duplicate-stitch '2011' on it and add a little jingle bell.

So it's been two years, to the day, and I'm back! Happily knitting a beanie from a Spud & Chloe pattern. Notice how the outside of the beanie has that extra pink row showing. That's a mistake, of course, so I'll be un-knitting back to the pink. But how could I possibly mind?? I'm glad to be creating again!
