Changing Needles

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.

Happy creating/

It's a sock. I like it. So keep those needles going. Good luck with untangling that yarn.

The stocking is pretty close to a sock. It looks lovely. I keep seeing a load of Christmas crafting and I haven't even started mine !
