Running with stockings

Pattern: Twirl Top Stockings at Knit Picks (The pattern seems to have been taken down)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky # 17018
& Yarn Bee Highland Thistle # 201

I finished the last of my three stocking set! DH, Pumpkin, and I all have stockings based on Knit Pick's Twirl Top Stocking pattern. I used different yarns for them than the pattern called for, however, and I think it turned out just fine. Well, I'm almost done... I still have to make the loops. Once I do, though, and I buy stocking holders, I will hang them on the mantle with care and take a festive little pic.

I loooved working with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky on this project. Is her name really Bliss? Because that yarn is bliss! The cheapo Highland Thistle I paired with the cashmerino was quite trashy by comparison. But it suited my needs. It was hard once I got to the cuff to keep working becasue I wanted to get my hands back on a nicer yarn. And get this--that silly Highland Thistle had a knot in it, and when I untied it, well, you can guess: my yarn wasn't actually one continuous yarn, so I had to treat it like I was adding a new ball of yarn. I'm quite insulted at that, actually!

Now, on to a baby hat!
