1 Down...

Hi Everyone, I finished my first stocking! The name was duplicate stitched on AKA swiss darning. This was my first time doing it and I found it pretty easy, the trick is not to pull the yarn too hard, otherwise you'll get the background color showing out...I used this tutorial. Now I just need to make a trip to the fabric store to find a lining, put it in and it's done! (Well now I need to start on mine!)
