Taking Stock

We bought a computer desk. It's not the one that I had posted that I wanted a month ago. Carl didn't approve. So, we bought a different one last night. Our bedroom is a "construction zone" but I should have it ready to go tonight or tomorrow. We're moving our old desk down into Caleb's room.

In other news, I've been commissioned by a friend from our old ward in Indiana to make some Christmas stockings. She didn't have a pattern but had an inspiration picture. These stockings are made out of wood.

Here's my version. This one is wheat and forest green heather Lion Brand Wool-ease. I made them on size 8 dpns. I'm making a total of 5 for her family and I'm going to write out the pattern as well. That way, if more kids come along I'll remember what the heck I did (or someone else can make them from my pattern). They are all going to be different color combinations (cranberry, grey, and navy are the other colors I'm working with).

I've also decided to make the kids' Halloween costumes again this year. Last year I knit Teletubbies hats (which STILL get worn quite regularly). I'm going with hats again this year. I'm not quite ready to divulge what yet. We'll see how they come along. But, I better get designing!

    I love your stocking design. The vertical lines make the stockings look extra long. You should post your pattern on your blog when you are done.
