Happy Friday!! I am checking in with a quick update on my Christmas stockings knitting project! I originally posted about my grand plans HERE and I’m happy to report that I finished stocking #1 (Erik’s) on Thanksgiving Day. I am really pleased with it, though it still needs blocking. I think that will definitely help smooth out some of my inconsistencies and just give it a more finished look. I hesitated on doing the striped lining in the cuff (no one will really see it except Erik!) but I am glad I did — it’s the perfect special touch! You can’t see the lining in these pics, but I posted a silly vid on Instagram today if you want to check it out!

stocking in need of blocking ;-)
I’m working away on stocking #2 (mine) and have a personal goal to finish it by next Friday. That will give me two weeks to finish the third and final stocking for Olive. I figure she’ll be understanding if I don’t finish in time. ;-)
Are any of you working on last-minute Christmas projects, knitted or otherwise??
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! We will be finishing up with our Christmas decorations around the house and decking out our beautiful 7+’ tall noble fir tree. It smells incredible and Olive is already enamored with our un-adorned “Kissmas Tee!” I can’t wait to see Olive’s eyes light up when she sees it in all its splendor!
