Anticipation

In anticipation of meeting my nephew, I’ve decided to knit him his Christmas stocking. I’ve got enough time to get it done if I stick to it, and it would be nice to give it to him in person rather than have to try to send it in the mail. So, I headed over to one of our new local yarn shops, picked up some lamb’s pride bulky, and got started. I’d had some plain white leftover knitpicks in my stash, so I didn’t get anything beyond the color.

I chose a teal for this one. In part because the choices were slim, and in part because I wanted something very different in color to what I’ve produced before. I’ll admit, I LOVE the color, and the result. What I don’t love is Lamb’ Pride Bulky and it’s splitty underspun nature. Ah well. It’s still gorgeous.

Sadly, I am not going to have enough of either color to finish. Thankfully, the shop has more of the teal, and I have a friend who has some leftover of the white, so I may manage even so.

Yes, I’ve still been spinning on the cabled yarn. And yes, I’ve been working on the two sweaters. And then there’s the biking, I’ve been doing that too! But, I am glad I could squeeze in some stocking knitting time, and hope to wrap this one up very shortly.
