Holly Berries

Completed stocking!
I like the way it turned out, but I think I need to do some more embroidery practice!

I really want to get started on a pair of fingerless mitts or full length mittens, but I am stopped by my lack of needles, which means that I must finish the last Paraphernalia sock before I can start...sigh.

I'm also thinking of frogging Lina:


I intended this as a gift, but found something else I liked better while I was finishing it. Thus, I thought I would just wear it myself, but it's a little too small for me. So, I think frogging might be the best idea, in which case I'll make a hat similar to Ardelle.

Frogging would be kind of a shame because it's so pretty! If you can spare the yarn there are a few people running hat drives through their blogs...

That stocking is adorable! It would be unfortunate to frog such a lovely looking hat, but I understand the quandary.

I love the stubby-toed sock; it's really cute.

Beautiful hat. It would make someone's head warm...

Love the stocking! I embroidered last night too! On the heel of the sock. it looks a might bit rustic...Well, I did duplicate stich. Your embroidery looks really good! I have 2 pairs of knucks that are waiting some embroidery if you want to practice. :)
