Still Life and Sock Gnome


I'm so happy, I feel like I finally got out of my knitting slump! I have a sock and a Christmas Stocking that are just flowing happily along! FINALLY! I was thinking I might have to see some sort of "Knitting Therapist" or something. First up is my Mistletoe along stocking. I'm using a pattern from Holiday Handknits that I have modified so far. It is knit back and fourth then seamed down the back. So far its motoring right along.

Next is my other sock that I started last night. Its knit with some Fortissima Colori that I got from Elann.com. I only bought single skeins of a bunch of differant colors. I know I can make a pair of kids socks with just one ball. I'm thinking just some short socks for from just one ball. I dont know what color this is called but it reminds me of Autumn so I grabbed it first. I thought I would let the Gnome model it. I made him a few Summers ago in my Ceramics class. This year he has spent the Summer guarding the back door.
