the stocking project that I posted about. Here's the finished stocking:
I was not entirely pleased, but I had less than adequate time, materials, and instructions, so I must be content with what it is. The young man seemed pleased with it. Thankfully, he won't inspect it as closely as one does who fiddles with the yarn for that many hours.
It was recommended that I post photos of this stocking at my market table and take orders for stockings for next Christmas. I'm wondering ... I probably worked on this single stocking for about 15 hours, at least! How can you ever recoup that time expense? I think those hours would be better spent making scarves and smittens that sell quickly for as much, and are swift to produce.
I have a backlog of photos to post and things to say. Later, friends!
