Her favourite Christmas song is ''Fairytale of New York'' by Kirsty Maccoll and The Pogues
So....Over to Jo!!!
So without further ado, here are 2 of my knitting projects. They are not 100% completed. I decided that as part of my Xmas fun I would make some Christmas stockings for the mother and the dad. I first saw a stocking on Rachel B's blog which was gorgeous and then happened to picked up this magazine Woman's Weekly which had this beautiful stocking in it.
The second stocking is for the mother and I searched on Ravelry for a more feminine design. I found this one called Hearts and downloaded the pattern. Now this one gave me more of a challenge as I have never knitted using double ended needles and certainly never with 4!!!! So off I went to Youtube to search out some lessons and I actually found alot of helpful stuff. It took me a few attempts to get going without dropping the stitches and twisting everything around, but once I got the hang of it I was away. The second thing I had to get sorted was wrapping and turning stitches, again nothing I'd heard of before. This turned out to be so simple anyone could do it, you just work the number of stitches, bring the wool to the front, slip ur stitch, bring the wool to the back and turn, then repeat the process. I am really proud of this sock, it is NOT perfect at all b ut I so glad I gave it a go.
Finally I have to complete my friend's Lucy Bag, which is a crochet design. I just have to complete the handle and do the bag edging design.
Love Jo Jo xxxxx
