Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! It's sad that the busy Etsy Christmas time is over, but I'm looking forward to doing some other projects in the new year. Meanwhile I've been knitting a few more stockings for next year while staying with my parents for the holidays. The background is great, I wish I had nice outside background in Dublin. There's no snow, but the frosty ground and the wind still air are also great for the photos:

Snowmen knitted stocking
 Next will be a cat stocking and I'll probably be out of turquoise. But 4 is a good number. 

Then I had some time and made a video of me knitting:

The stockings will be for sale in my Etsy shop next year: Gigi82Knits

Angel Stocking

I finished these stockings recently:

The angel motif is new, it's quite big, but I like it. I'm going to knit it on a 2 colour stocking soon, red or blue with white. 

I'm going to publish my pattern soon, it's my plan for the next few weeks. It's  a lot of work, though. Lots of writing and re-writing and photographing and oh no, forgot a needle, have to photograph again... 

There will be just 2 more stockings shipped this year and that's it then. 

I might do a best-of 2013 stockings post or video, I think that would be fun. There were lots of stockings this year. I actually know exactly how many, I keep a spreadsheet ;) 

Happy Holidays
