I just realized that this very ROYAL blue stocking is going to the son of the Kansas City Royals BIGGEST fan… so perhaps it is fitting after all!
I’m not sure how I feel about the colors (neither do Noah’s parents) , but we had to start somewhere! They’ve actually grown on me… but that tends to happen when spend a month continuously knitting something. And let me tell you it’s WAY more interesting than the plain old red ones I’ve done. All it needs now is Noah’s name in the blank royal blue part up by the snowman dangles and it’s all set to go to its new home in Kansas.
I’ve decided that I love Fair Isle (seen here in the snowflakes)! It was so much fun to do! And I think the next little Campbell will probably get less blue in his/hers. I’m just glad that it actually turned out OK and that it was done prior to December 24th!
I also finished the Teddy Bear, but gave it away to Baby Keyser without taking a picture. Ooops. Mommy Keyser promises to let me take a picture of it, though. Someday I’ll get around to it. Now I just need to finish the slippers for my hubby, knit up another bear for the littlest Gabel, and I want to make a few hand-knitted mini-sweaters for the Christmas tree. Good thing I’ve got 10 hours of flying over Thanksgiving! Sleep?? Who needs sleep??
