Back in September I succumbed to my children's request for larger Christmas stockings and started a new knitting project. I have just finished the first. It may eventually acquire tassels and pom-poms if I can persuade DD to make some!
I had never knitted socks before, so this was a bit of a challenge - turning the heel was interesting...
To be honest, it wasn't totally successful and there are a few judicious stitches in the heels. I am still fairly pleased with the result. I have persuaded DD that a snowflake pattern is much more exciting than stripes and started on the next stocking. I have just about reached the fair isle section.
Fair isle knitting in the round? I am feeling nervous!
