WIP Wednesday: Decking the Halls

IMG_8041-1
How are you all doing on your holiday preparations? I still need to get out my white Christmas tree for my studio, but other than that holiday prep is on more or less on track at my house. As are my WIPs!
First, I finished knitting that Christmas stocking! And it turned out a normal size and shape and everything! It’s a Christmas miracle! I still need to line it with fabric and rig up some sort of hanging loop, but the actual knitting is done, so we’ll call this one a finish. This is the “Falling Snow Stocking” free pattern by Jennifer Hoel, available on Ravelry—you can get it here.
Also, still plugging away at those Greek Key blocks for my upcoming quilt-along! The quilt-along will start in early January on the Bernina We All Sew blog.

 

One quick housekeeping note: Don’t forget that you can get a FREE PDF copy of my Sparkler pattern if you sign up for my email newsletter by Monday, Dec. 14! Click here to sign up. Once you confirm your subscription, a discount code will be emailed to you to claim your free pattern. (Sorry, this offer is not available to customers in the European Union.)
And finally, here was the focus of all my energy this past weekend: Two days of Nutcracker performances (and two rounds of performance hair-do’s) for this little one. She’s been an angel in our dance studio’s production of the Nutcracker for three years in a row now. All our fingers and toes are crossed for a different part next year, because I am getting soooo tired of paying for angel costumes (yes, it’s a different costume every year!). She does look (deceptively) sweet though, doesn’t she? LOL.
What are you working on? Let’s see it!

    I'm so impressed with the stocking! I love the look but not sure my knitting skills are up to that. Maybe someday.

    So many awesome projects on the list today! Thanks for hosting a great link party.

    I just love your knitted stocking! I also love the free pattern and have been busily sewing on it. I couldn't believe how easy it was – hope to put the top together today. Thank you, again :)!

    Hurrah for your "normal" Christmas stocking–it's delightful! I remember those days of "angelic" looks with my own, now grown, daughter–it was hard for others to believe what a real stinker she could be 🙂

    Your daughter does look adorable. And well-done on the Christmas stocking. That's a really interesting pattern. I knit a stocking for my oldest child when she was about 3,and it turned out to be nearly as tall as she was!
