Little Stockings

The Mini Christmas Stocking Ornament class that Robin taught last weekend inspired me to make some of my own:
These are the cutest things and quick to make. The first one I made took me an hour and a half, and the second one took only an hour and 15 minutes! I'm hoping to make a couple more by the end of the weekend for the tree we are decorating for the Festival of Trees at the Masonic Hall in Altamont. And then maybe a couple more to put on xmas gifts. Here is a link if you are interested in making them: Mini Christmas Stocking Ornaments

Speaking of links to patterns, if you are interested in the free Gathered Scarf pattern that I am making with the Malabrigo Silky Merino (which is coming along nicely and I have a lot more done than this picture indicates):
You can find it here: Gathered Scarf

The other project I finished recently was the Shawl Collared Cowl with Baby Alpaca Grande Hand Dye:
I really enjoyed this pattern - it was fun and interesting to knit, and the yarn is just yummy to work with. I had gotten these patterns in the shop and the all went almost that same day. Just got more in. [Ok, and in case you didn't notice, there are some button holes in the lower right side of the cowl that appear to not have any buttons in them. Yvette has graciously offered to sew them on for me. Isn't it terrible?---- I just don't like putting buttons on. I suppose I could use a shawl stick, like I've done for the February Lady Sweater and the Tappan Zee, but the buttons will just really make this look nice. Thanks Yvette!]

Your shop looks so cute! I'm sure it's a very pleasant place to knit and spin. I wish you were closer to Western New York...but if I'm ever in your area, I will look for your shop!
