It's been a week?

A week since I last posted. Wasn't it just a couple of entries ago that I said I would make every effort to post several times a week? tell us, Felicia, how is that working for you?

Oklahoma City was nice. I was too tired by the end of the day to venture off the hotel to convention center path, so I never found a great restaurant for dinner. I tried a couple of different places that were all just ok. But it's not like I starved. The weather was wonderful. And I have never seen so many women with very long hair in one place! least three women with hair at or below their hips! One with hair that was probably to the back of her knees! Most were in jeans, so I really don't think it was a religious thing. They just wore their hair very long.

But I never posted the finished Christmas stocking! I had it finished around the 22nd - and then found out the baby didn't need a stocking - in fact already had one. So I guess this one is going into a drawer or something until I need a Christmas stocking! I highly recommend this pattern! Scroll down to the Christmas stockings. With the recommendations from Ravelry, I cast on more stitches than called for in the pattern. With the multiples used in the stitch designs, either 80 or 84 stitches will work great. I still need to weave in the ends, block and sew a lining, but I'm callin her done!

Oh, it's cute!

It's as wintery as Christmas here, anyhow.

It's beautiful!!! I knit all of us stockings (plain) last year. This year, I found a HUGE hole in one of them. It looked like the yarn had just come apart or something. ::sigh:: Guess I'll be knitting a new one for next year.
