Christmas Knits: Keepsake Christmas Stocking

Keepsake StockingJust found this yummy stocking posted on Red Heart’s 12 Weeks of Christmas site. It is made with 1 skein of Super Saver multicolor Primary A, and 1 of red, but I bet you have enough left over red from a previous project. Requires size 8 US (5 mm) straight needles and a crochet hook in size I-9 US (5.5 mm).

Christmas Humor: Twelve Tacky Sweaters

Eleven pipers piping, twelve tacky sweaters…….

Not exactly how the song goes, but it’s become a perennial source of merriment – the over the top Christmas sweater, which now comes in endless variations.  I subscribe to iVillage UK News, and this morning they posted a slide show of some of the very best sweaters in the entire kingdom. Just a bit of Christmas humor!
