Less than six months to go....


Here's a scary thought: we now have less than six months before the Christmas finishing deadline established by most needlepoint shops! I decided to get cracking on another holiday gift before more time slips by and I get caught empty-handed!

This mini-sock was designed for a very special guy whose favorite color is green, which makes it particularly easy to please him at Christmas! It's been painted to be worked in fairly simple stitches--Scotch and mosaic, with a little basketweave thrown in for good measure--but also has room for a few "special effects."

So do come back and visit as I attempt to check another ornament off my gift list!

Very clever of you to get a head start. I've been thinking of getting started, just haven't done anything about it yet. I like the colors and design of this.. very festive.

This looks like fun to stitch, so I envy you, Anne. I also like that you've added the date in the toe. Nice touch.
