A nice lady has commissioned me to make 3 Christmas stockings exactly like the ones she has already. Her existing stockings were made by her grandmother a long time ago.
I’ve had a very hard time finding the right yarn to match the gauge and color of her stockings. (7 stitches per inch - fingering weight, in Christmas colors)
After much research and swatch-knitting, I’ve chosen some vintage red Bear Brand Ever Match yarn that was in my stash.
And Knit Picks “Palette” knits up to the right gauge, so I’m ordering some in the right color from Knit Picks right now. I’ll be so happy to get a good start on these stockings!
