For all of you so worried about my poor ripped out stocking, it has been reborn, well actually reknitted!
This is not an easy knit, but I did enjoy working on it - up until the duplicate stitch on the argyle section and name. I like to knit, not sew. That was too much like sewing! And it does need a lining - anyone want to sew one for me?
Since this one was a success, I guess I have to make four more so we'll all have matching stockings next Christmas.
