...the (knitted) stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Saint Knitolas soon would be there.
Ok, that was obnoxious. My point being though, that if you're planning to knit holiday stockings this year then now's the time. Wouldn't you know it, I have just the pattern for you! Type on over to Kntting.About.com to nab the instructions for this Zig-zag Christmas Stocking.

Stop on by the Etsy blog to see yesterday's How-to Tuesday post, by moi. In it, I show you how to do the pattern stitch for my Wrist Factor wrist warmers. Make a pair for yourself, then whip out a few more for the guys and gals in your life. Enjoy!

Chevron Vase Cozies I designed for Craftzine.com in September, and worked them in to the Fall decor at our home. I love how the be-cozied vases look with the stemmed pumpkins inside of them. I'm thinking one of these would make a great host or teacher gift, filled with fall-colored flowers.
The pattern is still available for free here, and as always, Sheep(ish) yarn can be purchased at Buy.Caron.com or select Michaels and JoAnn stores.

Last week we officially said "so long" to our Stitch.Rock.Knit-along. Unofficially however, it lives on. The threads on both Ravelry and Facebook are still up as well as the how-to cable video on YouTube, so feel free to continue working on cowls and sharing pictures--we love seeing 'em!
Just like any host, I was nervous that no one would show up to the knit-along party. I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by the response, though! I truly enjoyed virtually hanging out with everyone, and watching their progress (and sharing mine)! Here are just a few KAL finished projects.
|L-R Mine, knit in Coral(ish), Tina Lindquist's, Renee Blankenship's |
& Michelle Kovach's (all via Facebook)
|L-R Jessoliel, AnaBC, LiteraryLady & MamaKaren (all via Ravelry)|
Here's what people are saying about the knit-along:
"Thanks for the great pattern and KAL!-"-Debbie Jarmusik
"I already wore [my cowl] before I blocked it, because it's so cute I couldn't wait!"
"The [how-to] video was great, thanks for the cable refresher...!"-- Alice Reagan
"Please do knit-alongs more often. I don't have friends who knit and this was really fun!"--Allison McCallister
"[Sheep(ish)] colors are just beautiful and vibrant!" --Stazerd (Ravelry)
"Loved this project. Now I can have fun making myself one!--Jmacal9425
