This set turned out lovely, the stockings have very similar patterns but the main patterns are all completely different which makes them very striking I think. I'm a bit afraid the third stocking could get me into trouble with the trademark holders, so I'm not going to mention what the symbol is, so I wouldn't be accidentally found on google. A customer gave me a challenge.
|Christmas is coming|
This is a set of pure wool stockings, the customer wanted the bear's nose slightly shorter, I agree that this looks better, so I changed the pattern for future projects. This colour way for a set of 2 and in pure wool is extremely popular, I already knitted a few and I have another one on the needles.
This set could well be my favourite new design of 2014, looks great with the colours like this. I like how I'm moving away from the black and white (+ colour) I used to only do.
I'm also pleased with the elephants, this is the first large stocking I have knitted with elephants.
There's a third stocking to be knitted, with reindeer.
|Madly grinning gingerbread men|
And finally I got an order for a gingerbread man, I've been dying to knit this again. Classic design, very popular this year again.
My current count is 20 stockings to knit, but there are up to 4 prospective customers who I'm saving time for as well.
This weekend I should be able to finish 2 orders, and start 3 new ones, I hope anyway. I want to only take photos on Sundays, it's getting quite dark in the evening now.
So no more orders for Christmas 2014 please. But I have started the waiting list for 2015.
