Well after I had completed Evy's stocking, I realized that Kev needed one too. He is always asking for cabled knits, so I decided the Aran Stocking from Handknit Holidays was perfect. So here it is, Kev's Christmas Stocking.
I started this a little before last Christmas, and then promptly realized it would never be finished in time. So it sat in a box for a year. But as the holiday season drew near this year, I was determined to finish it!
I used Debbie Stoller's Full O' Sheep, which I can't seem to find in the stores anymore. Good thing I bought a gazillion balls of it when I made Evy's stocking. For the trim, I held one strand of Full O' Sheep, and one strand of Enchantress together. It's the perfect amount of contrast, and matches Evy's stocking nicely.
This was a real step up in my cable knitting abilities I feel like I might actually be able to knit that Aran sweater Kev has been requesting since I started knitting garter stitch scarves.
I've come to realize that my gift knits will never be ready in time for Christmas. But as they are for my parents, I'm pretty sure it will be ok!
