A good knitting day, a bad knitting day...

I FINALLY finished Owen's Christmas stocking! It didn't even take that long. It just felt like it did! It was definitely the second hardest thing I've ever made (to the purple sweater.) I am so happy to have it done and that it turned out so nicely! It is really heavy yarn so I think it will hold up well throughout many years of being stuffed full of treats by Santa.
On a sad note, two hats I made for gifts are now 3-6 and 6-12 months sizes. They were supposed to be for adults. They felted up much smaller than I expected...Oh, well. Mike tried to console me by telling me I could just make more (if I get started right now...) Maybe we'll try again next year.
