Happy New Year!




I am so excited. I have one Norwegian Stocking down and one to go! This is got to be the first pattern I have ever followed to a "T". I did the heel double up in black because I wear heels out fast. I must shift all my weight there or something. It looks like a difficult pattern, but don't be intimidated. The color work on the leg is just two stranded and required very little weaving of ends. I was concerned my knitting would be too tight and therefore "pucker" a little. It doesn't and this one fits nicely.
I finished my children's mittens the night before Christmas. I thought I'd show them off even though they aren't very fancy. They like them very much. Evidently they go very nice with a Batman costume.
Have a Happy New Year blessed with Peace, Love, Joy and Health!

Thank you. The socks were a bit tedious at times what with five children running around. I wonder when I will ever find the time to do the mate. Thank you for the kind comments about them.

This is beautiful! I like that the red is just at the top. Great job. Keep you toasty warm too :)

I stumbled across your blog. I just started knitting like a month ago and I've been to Norway a couple of times! Happy knitting!
