Gosh I just love these thank you! I love your blog!ReplyDelete
Thank you Denise. Glad you like them.Delete
What timing. I just started to try my hand at knitting after learning the Knit and pearl stitch.ReplyDelete
I've gotten as far as K2tog. After I break the yarn off and pull it through the stitches on my hook, do I
sew up the side seam going into both V's on each side?
Thanks so much ---wow my first project in knitting. I may be hooked :)
If your first ever knitting project is a stocking then you have done amazingly well!Delete
And yes - sew up the side seam catching the V on each side, making sure any stripes match up.
I hope you had fun - and let me warn you - making these is ADDICTIVE! Best wishes. M
Oh my, they're so cute! You're so prolific with them.ReplyDelete
