First Stocking of the Holiday...Done...well...almost

I have been working on a stocking by and I just loved working on it!

I am almost done with it...I need to line it (the pattern doesn't call for it, however with all the beading and threads in the back, I want to
) and put a name on it. Originally I was making it for myself, HOWEVER, I may want to give it as a gift for the I will wait on the name for now.

At least 2 more stockings to go.

Pattern links and progress report

There is a BEAUTIFUL lacy cabled stocking in the Holiday 06 issue of Vogue Knitting. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a picture of it online, but if you are looking for a pattern, check it out.

I've also added some patterns to the link list on the right-hand sidebar. If you have others, please email them to me so I can add them to the list.

Hope everyone's projects are going well! I finished the knitting (still lots of finishing left!) on my first stocking and have started the knitting of the second one.

How's everyone else doing? Please post progress reports!
