STASH-BUSTING #11

And the goose is getting fat…

πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒ

So no matter how much I try to ignore it the festive season is just around the corner.

Ding dong merrily on high πŸŽ…

So I am using up red and white yarn. I love the simplicity of scandi patterns. I found the pattern for the hearts in an old issue of Knit Today (issue 91 Xmas 2013). The hearts are supposed to be done on dpns but I get into a bit of mess with them at the best of times so gave up with so few stitches. My hearts have a side seam….

The stocking is ready for a quiz night next week, this is taken from a Debbie Bliss pattern found in a Xmas Prima (2011). It is no wonder my house is such a state I don’t throw anything away!!!

I have just got to buy a load of Christmas tat to fill the stocking with so that the Parents Association can raffle it. I then have to make another one for my sister to raffle at a carols and mince pie evening πŸ‘ΌπŸ‘ΌπŸ‘Ό

Should get through a chunk of my red and white stash β™‘β™‘β™‘

  1. Love all of those. I too like Scandinavian fair isle motifs. The stocking looks like a good size to fit lots of goodies into.
    When I was an office worker in my 20s one of my favourite things to do was buy the magazines that came out every week or month containing knitting and sewing patterns. I still regret getting rid of my Stitch by Stitch set that I collected over a year, but it took up so much room (and the patterns would be laughably outdated now).
