knitting by my hands and from my heart

The yarn stash just keeps on growing! I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend who works in Corporate America, lives in the Boston, MA area and is always looking for more time to knit.

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.

The flower is really pretty! I think other photos are fine in a knitting blog, but maybe that's just my bias since I include them too.

The colors of the stocking are really pretty. It will look great!

I agree about the photos!! Keeps things interesting (not that knitting isn't!).
