I gave the knitting needles a couple of days rest and started a little Christmas stitching.
First up a stocking...
it's almost a sock!
Then some little tags.
Both of these are taken from designs by Vivian Robinson, published in Australian Homespun No38 Vol7 No6.
The hook got a little workout too,
a Christmas tree and a star.
Patterns found here.
Pretty yarn gifted by a fellow crafter - thanks Mel.
At least that was productive.
Then I made a big mess of trying to wind this yarn from a skein.
The yarn came from the op-shop and is quite old, there is a lot of it but fortunately for me it is tied in small skeins so I won't get completely tangled.
