Greetings, and Dear Cynthia,
Just a quick note...
A friend commissioned me to knit a Christmas stocking for each member of her family:
Pattern is from Blackberry Ridge, but I designed the colorwork in the holly and snowflake sections and also used different lettering in the name band.
Bulky yarn, so they were relatively quick knits at roughly 7.5 hours each.
Gotta run! Lots more to share, including a pattern I devised for making a water bottle carrier out of old jeans... Stay tuned...
