I had a great time knitting Christmas Stockings this year for Will and Grant and was able to make a few more for friends and family too!
This first stocking is for the 9-month old son of two good friends from Wheaton. I love how this stocking turned out! I was thrilled to be able to make this for him.
The second set are for my brother- and sister-in-law. The goal was something traditional and something fun and funky at the same time. I had to make them a little shorter than the previous stocking so the toes don’t catch on fire when they are hanging on their fireplace mantle.
After making the snowmen out of pom pom’s, I was inspired to add a few to our Christmas tree!
One of Grant’s cousins asked me to make a pair of slippers for their daughter. I initially started with the pattern I made for the baby slippers
on my Etsy shop
but that first pair was a felting failure! I made these Felted Slippers
from French Press Knits a few years ago and love them (so much I’ve made them for both my mom and sister too), so I decided to try and make a downsized version!
I forgot to take a picture of the soles of the slippers before sending them off in the mail, but I added some fabric similar to this
(but bought at JoAnn) to the bottoms to give them some grip.
Size: Toddler 9 (about 6″)
I have been working on a new knitting pattern inspired by living in Minnesota! I’ve been knitting for a long time and making up a lot of patterns as I go so I am super excited to publish my first pattern for others to use and enjoy!
Here is a sneak peek of Will modeling/testing some of my sample knits. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good name for these baby Norwegian mittens??
