As promised in my last post, Holiday Knitting…in late summer, I have pictures of some of the stockings I have knitted up!  They didn’t take nearly as long as I thought they may and to be honest…they have me considering doing some actual socks (I know, hypocritical much???).  I just adore how they turned out and with a bit of duplicate stitching yet to come, they will be perfectly personalized for myself and Jack.  So much more fun than store bought stockings!  More holiday fun yet to come!!!  PS… you may find one of these for sale in my store!

always, ashley

Holiday Knitting…in late summer

holiday knitting

It’s that time of year again!  The time of year where it is MONTHS out from the winter holiday season and everyone is lookin’ at me weird for my holiday knitting projects.  But that’s the way us knitters have to roll, am I right?  Handmade gifts, decor, and other holiday knick knacks don’t just make themselves over night!

SO!  For my first project of the season, I am making my boyfriend and I some stockings to hang up at our new home.  Now, I have never knitted any kind of sock before (honestly, I think they take too long and they don’t seem much fun), so for this project, I am using my own special mash up of several patterns from this vintage knitting book.

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I am a big fan of taking similar patterns and creating Frankenstein’s monster.  (FYI, in this case Frankenstein’s monster is really, really cute!)  Essentially, I am taking the cuff of one, the body of the other, and then duplicate stitching our names on to each one!  Pictures to come when complete!  Stay tuned for more holiday knits!

always, ashley
