knitting by my hands and from my heart

Thinking about my next project (a Christmas stocking for my daughter)
I got a shipment this week from Herrschners. I find them to be perfect for this sort of yarn purchase since they offer me free shipping every once in a while.
I decided on purple for her stocking because it's a Christmas color (sort of) and girl-ish. I got purple and lavender.
I think I'm going to make the main stocking purple (darker color) and the toe and heel lavender (lighter color). The snowflake (fair-isle) in the pattern will be in Aran--which I have extra leftover from mine, my husband's, and my son's stockings.
I swore I wouldn't start this until after I finish that darn blanket and I'm going to stick to that!
This isn't knitting-related but I'd share a picture of a Pink Lady Slipper that is growing in the park where I take my walks. It's beautiful.
