Wow!

I'm totally blown away by how many of you popped in here and left a sweet comment...thank you! Congratulations Sharon!!! (Sharon's Cross Stitch Obsession) I'm sending you an email for your address so I can get your ornie in the mail! I have a lot of fun with these little giveaways, so look for more in the coming year!

Here's a Half-Pipe Hat and Mitts for Oldest......this time in Cascade 220 (color #8401, from the stash.) I have one more set of these to make (for a present) and then I'm going to swear off of them for a while :)


And today's Christmas decor pic is of the very Seuss-like stockings I knit for the kiddos a few years ago. I did them out of desperation since the boys had been using "Baby's First Christmas" stockings well past babyhood.


Oldest has a stitched stocking. And I can proudly say it was finished for her first Christmas. Hubby's stocking is stitched, but needs sewn up. It's been sitting in that state for, hmmm, maybe 10 years??? I have patterns all kitted up for the boys and me, and that's all the further those got. Pathetic, I know. But the kiddos love these; they're big and they have a LOT of stretch (the better for Santa to stuff more treasures into!)

Have a great night everyone, and thanks for dropping by!
