I didn’t finish the stocking on the trip, but I did sit down at work and finish the toe my first day back. Then, I wove in ends that evening, even though I was feeling very lethargic after my first day back at work. I figured I could at least put the final finishing touches on it.
It turned out ok! There are mistakes this round. Ones I wasn’t willing to go back and fix. I am sure my cousin, who will be receiving this stocking #21 for his daughter, won’t bother to look that close despite being a knitter himself.
I immediately started on the second stocking of this year. Because it’s needed soon, and because I might as well get it off my plate. And mostly, because it’s part of my July socks set, and we are already way past July.
