I know it’s August now, but I want to talk a little bit about July projects.


At the end of July I started the first Christmas stocking in a series of four that I’m making for a cute little family of four just in time for this Christmas. I’ve picked four colors: red, green, blue, creme, and the stockings will all be a bit varied as far as color placement.

I’m just now starting the argyle section of the first stocking. It’ll be my first time doing an argyle pattern, but I plan to modify it a bit so it’ll be easier to make, mainly, use two colors instead of three. I can’t wait to see how this traditional, yet quirky pattern works up, and I’m delighted that my efforts will hopefully become a cherished family tradition and heirloom.
